Immigrants of Wine “Try and Buy”

February 26, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Drop by Jet’s Lounge on Sunday, February 26th, any time between 2-4 to sample a selection of “Liberty” wines! What do these wines have in common? They are all US wineries that feature immigrants in prominent roles – winemakers, cellar masters, proprietors, etc. Lady Liberty welcomed many immigrants to these shores, some of whom brought wine-making know-how and desire. Taste the (juice of the)fruits of their labors!

In their honor, Jet will be matching all donations (up to $500) to the immigration-support organization, HIAS.

Don’t know which you’d like to buy? No problem. We’ll have sparkling, still, red, white, and rosé for you to try first, then buy bottles to-go!  $5 gets you in the door to taste as many wines as you’d like. Try, then Buy!

These wines are not available in-store in Pennsylvania.

Our hosts for the afternoon are Descheres’ Wine and Spirits, and Jet’s owner and “wining archaeologist”, Jill Weber.

The $5 you spend to taste our wines will be deducted from your bottle(s) purchase-price. Each guest can purchase up to 4 bottles.
