MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: THE CIPOLLONIs
Meet Jim & Lisa Cipolloni! Jim & Lisa have been visiting Penns Woods Winery since 2013! It all started when Lisa did some research on romantic events to attend for Valentine's Day around the area. Luckily, Lisa stumbled upon our Wine & Chocolate pairing and immediately emailed Jim "We have a winery really close to us. This looks like fun ; )". Jim said, since that pairing, they were hooked on Penns Woods wine...and that is where our friendship with the Cipollonis began!
The Cipollonis found their love for wine back in 2011/2012; influenced a bit by some of their family members. Neither one of them was sure what kind of wines they preferred, so they started as many of us do...visiting different local wineries and experiencing various tastings! Now, whenever they travel, they always look for local places to try. Their second favorite winery is Two Sisters in Niagara on the Lake in Ontario, Canada. This was one they stumbled upon a few years back with some friends, and have since revisited just last year with family. But, their adventures are just beginning...Napa & Sonoma are still on the horizon.
Jim & Lisa have always enjoyed wine & food pairings, which is why their favorite event at Penns Woods is the Harvest Dinner! On occasion, they also appreciate the pairing events at the Gables. Jim & Lisa are very active members not only at Penns Woods winery, but attending local events in the community!
If you ever see the Cipollonis at the winery, you will most likely spot Jim sipping on our Cabernet Franc while Lisa is indulging in our Traminette! They are both so eager to sit outside at the vineyard, relaxing, and enjoying the various wines with their family and friends...and we sure are too! We look forward to having our incredible members and customers back at the winery as soon as we are able. We feel incredibly honored to have had Jim & Lisa find come into our Tasting Room 7 years ago, and we can't wait for another 7 years of memories with them. Cheers to this amazing couple!!
