If you had the pleasure of attending last year’s Annual Pennsylvania Wine Competition, then we won’t have to tell you how accomplished winemaker Rick Masser and his Benigna’s Creek Winery have become since opening in 2001. That’s because the family owned winery swept a handful of the competition’s most prestigious honors, including Best White Wine, Best Fruit Wine, as well as a second consecutive medal for Best in Show. We caught up with Benigna’s Creek co-owner Amy Masser to find out what the impressive Pennsylvania winery has in store for 2011.
“We’ve just recently completed construction on our new Grand Room,” Masser explains. “There’s nothing better than enjoying the view of the valley from our deck with a glass of wine.” Indeed, the expanded event and tasting room boasts an elegant, warm beauty; it is a wonderful environment to relax either indoors or outside on the comfortable patio. And with seating for up to 99 people, this addition to the winery is fast becoming a popular destination for both private events and special holiday celebrations hosted by the winery. Please visit the winery’s official website to inquire about private rentals and to view an up-to-date calendar of the winery’s upcoming events open to the public.
For a small, family owned winery, Benigna’s Creek produces a lot of wine; over 20 different options are currently being offered by the winery. And although many of these have been praised for their quality and taste, the most popular (remember that two-time Best in Show Winner I mentioned earlier?) remains their sweet white Sunshine. Made from the Vidal grape, Benigna’s Creek’s Sunshine balances ripe, tropical flavors with a distinct and lingering finish. And, for an even sweeter taste, try your choice of Benigna’s Creek’s award winning sweet fruit wines, including their award winning Strawberry blend. Or, for a more traditional dry wine, we recommend Benigna’s delightful red Chambourcin and white Traminette varietals.

Benigna’s Creek Winery is located on the Susquehanna Heartland Wine Trail in Pennsylvania. The winery has also opened several stores located throughout the state where you can purchase Benigna’s Creek wine and products. Please Click Here to locate the winery and store nearest you.
