Sorrenti Family Estate

Sorrenti Family Estate

July 22, 2022 [Poconos PA] – This is about a 75 minute drive from North Jersey. I was not actually enthusiastic about taking a wine tour on a 99F day in July, but as it turns out, there are no vineyards here.  A hail storm (according to one of the staff) had destroyed all the vines. So now they are simply a winery that sources all their grapes from other local regions.  This is a good thing, because it gives a much broader variety of wines for people to taste and enjoy around the open-air property. There are tables, gazebos and of course a dine-in area too.

The pizza is good.  The wine, at least this particular one, I found to be too light, weak and even bitter on the finish.  The sangria on the other hand, was perfect for a hot Summer day. (This is what you do with wine that is not to your liking anyway, you make sangria out of it).

They have an indoor tasting room, bar, and gift shop as well.  It is not a bad way to spend some time if you are in the area, just don’t look to tour a vineyard here.
