If you have not met Matt already, you are missing out! Matt brings such a positive energy to our team every time that he is around. He is always eager to help and learn more about wine, our members, and our business. We are so fortunate to have him a part of our Penns Woods family! See below for more about our awesome coworker!!
Tell us about your wine background.
I got into wine when I lived in Northern Virginia and I had 40 wineries/tasting rooms in the county next to me (Loudoun). I was able to cross off about 20 different wineries while I lived there for 2 years and was able to try so many different wines that I had no idea about. My first experience at a winery, I asked so many questions and loved learning about all the intricacies of the wine-making process!
What else are you into?
Some of my hobbies include running, keeping an eye on the weather, and traveling! I have a goal of running 100 miles a month (1200 a year) and that keeps me quite busy during these COVID days. Not so much travel this year but my goal is to hit all 50 states by 50 years old! I am currently at 32 states so more than halfway there. The weather has always interested me, so much so that I graduated with a degree in meteorology! Need a forecast? I’m your guy!
Any wine or pairing suggestions?
My favorite wine is Sauvignon Blanc & my favorite beer is something we often carry here at the Tasting Room- La Cabra’s Providence Pils. My favorite food and wine pairing overall is Chenin Blanc with smoked salmon!
