We recently re-visited the Glades Pike Winery is beautiful Somerset County, PA. Glades Pike is run by a really nice lady named Liz Diesel. Liz’s parents started the winery in 1994 and bottled their first harvest in 1995 and they currently bottle and sell about 7500 cases a year.
You may recall an earlier edition of this blog that featured Glades Pike. We really liked this place and when we went back we found a wine that we hadn’t previously tasted called Bicentennial Blush! Wow what a wonderful wine!! It was my kind of wine, you know sweet! : )
But, just because I like sweet wine doesn’t mean everyone else does. So for you folks who like a “real” wine, Glades Pike does it right! In fact, Glades Pike won a number of awards this year from the Finger Lakes International Wine Festival for a couple of their “real” wines. They brought home a gold medal for their 2008 Cabernet Franc, a silver medal for their 2008 Petit Verdot and a bronze medal for their 2008 Seyval Blanc.
I highly recommend visiting the Glades Pike Winery, just six miles south of the Somerset Borough on Route 31 (Glades Pike) in Somerset County.
