Great Pennsylvania Wine Toast

Join the Pittsburgh TasteBuds for this event:

And here are some wine tasting tips, from

One day, one toast, one celebrity toastmaster, one world record.

On August 14 at 3:30 p.m., wineries across Pennsylvania will open their doors and come alive for the Great Pennsylvania Wine Toast. The goal: To celebrate another record-setting year for the Pennsylvania wine industry. In the process, we hope to set a world record for the largest wine tasting ever conducted*.

Proud Pennsylvanian, wine lover and racing legend, Mario Andretti, will serve as our toastmaster, as he leads all locations in a simultaneous toast via video. Proceeds from the event will support The Fund to Benefit Children & Youth, a Lehigh Valley, Pa.-based organization that helps provide items and services to children and families in need.

So grab a friend and head out to a winery near you on August 14 so you can be a part of wine history…and sample some fantastic wines, of course!

* The current record – 17,429 – was set by more than 400 pubs across the U.K. in 2009. Help us bring the record home by joining us in the Great Pennsylvania Wine Toast!
