A touch of Italy in western Pennsylvania

Lago Winery - White Pizza

When one thinks of western PA they normally don’t think fine wine but over the years Pennsylvania has started to make itself know across the country as a place where a fine wine can be bought. And, for the locals, wineries are becoming a staple for a place to enjoy a weekend afternoon for lunch and tastings.

Lago Winery - Tasting Bar

With this we want to introduce to you Lago Winery in Jamestown, Pa: not far from Conneaut Lake and Pymatuning State Park.

If you are coming from Pittsburgh it’s just a ninety minute drive up I-79 and is well worth the drive.  The drive during the fall months would likely be beautiful with all of the autumn scenery.

When you enter the main dining and entertainment area you are greeted by the friendly and knowledgeable staff who will provide you tastings of different wines for just a dollar a piece. Since it is a small winery the selection isn’t very big but you can tell that they take a lot of time and pride into each wine. From sweet blush wines to dry red’s there is something for everyone.

Lago Winery - Cheese Platter

Also, they have a nice menu of wood fired thin crust pizzas and a meat & cheese platter.  The pepperoni on the platter was even heart-shaped, how cute.  Feel free to have a seat outside and enjoy a nice summer breeze and a cool band playing while enjoying some cheese and a glass of wine.

All wines can be purchased by the glass and bottle and don’t be afraid to take a bottle home for your next dinner party or game night with friends…we left with a few bottles ourselves!
