Castlerigg Wine Shop Opens in Carlisle

I stopped by Castlerigg Wine Shop today after they had their grand opening weekend. It was much more than I expected! They offer Pennsylvania wines through exclusive partnerships and currently feature wines from Seven Mountain Wine Cellars and The Vineyard at Grandview. You can do a tasting at the wine bar or enjoy a glass and share a few appetizers at one of the cozy tables. Some of the appetizers sounded delicious...baked brie, cheesecake, chocolate truffles, caprese and a few more!
They also offer some unique wine merchandise and olive oils and balsamics from Olio in Lititz and specialty jams and chutneys from Tait Farm Foods in Centre Hall. They are hoping to add some live music and other special events so we will definitely be back to this new Carlisle addition. Castlerigg is conveniently located on Hanover Street in the downtown area so if you are headed out to dinner at one of Carlisle's BYOB locations it's easy to stop by and grab a bottle.

  1. After reading about this I went to visit over the weekend and LOVED it! The shop is so cozy and inviting, the staff are welcoming and the wine is delicious. A friend and I both did an eight wine flight with food samples, one from Seven Mountain Wine Cellars and one from the Vineyard at Grandview. We each only drank half of our sample and switched so that we were able to try wines from both wineries. We were on a time crunch so we couldn't stay longer and drink a glass of wine, but we would have loved to!
