Congratulations to Presque Isle Wine Cellars on their 50th anniversary!

Earlier this month, February 17, Presque Isle Wine Cellars in Pennsylvania celebrated its 50th Anniversary. In 1964 Doug Moorhead opened his business selling winemaking equipment and supplies. The winery is located in the Pennsylvania town of North East near Lake Erie.

Today supplies available include: winemaking equipment and supplies, beer making supplies, grape juice from Italy and Chile and special kits. Kits include some unusual options: Make Your Own Hot Sauce, Make Your Own Spa Bath, Make Your Own Mustard, Make Your Own Root Beer, Make Your Own Soda Pop and Make Your Own Vinegar.

Doug Moorhead is a pioneer in the wine industry in Pennsylvania. Doug was instrumental in getting vinifera grape varietals introduced into the Pennsylvania Lake Erie region.

By 1968 Doug was making wine. Presque Isle Wine Cellars was one of the first wineries to be established in Pennsylvania. Presque Isle Wine Cellars is in the Lake Erie Viticultural Appellation. Today the winery produces many styles of wine including:  vitis vinifera, vitis labrusca, sweet wines and dessert wines.

In 50 years Presque Isle Wine Cellars has grown many times over. The winemaking supplies list is extensive with an online catalogue available. A farmhouse has been renovated and is available for events. The winery also offers classes.

Currently Presque Isle Wine Cellars has a Better Business Bureau rating of A+.
