SPRING GATE WINERY AND BEER GARDEN
at "THE CROSSROADS AT ARCONA"
We're Open For - FREE TASTINGS
Saturdays Noon to 5pm
Sundays Noon to 5pm
A lot of people have been to SpringGate's Vineyard Estate and Farm Brewery - but not quite everyone. So, we thought we would start immediately with some wine tastings at Arcona.
Through the Sunday before Christmas, we'll begin doing our regular tastings in a metal shipping container (our Tasty Pop-Up) right behind THEA in the Crossroads at Arcona. We will be tasting on Saturday and Sunday from Noon to five PM.
At the Estate, we use shipping containers to hold glass and tools, so we thought it was totally appropriate to bring to this nascent building project (which has its own shipping containers), that farm feel. When we're open, we'll move the container to another location in Central Pennsylvania, so stay tuned and collect a selfie at each future location!
We will be participating as best we can in the community before we actually open our permanent location. It will take some creativity at time, so bear with us, as we "birth" the next SpringGate baby!
Saturday Evening Pairings with Thea
Starting on November 10th, we will offer an exclusive pairing at Thea Restaurant with their monthly wine-inspired appetizer on Saturdays from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. Look for us at the hospitality table inside Thea for a tasting of our wine and, learn more about why their savory appetizer pairs so well with our SpringGate signature wine. With your purchase of the appetizer, you'll receive a glass of wine--on us! We are very excited to be "blending" the magic of Thea and SpringGate all winter long.
Coming Soon! The Whole SpringGate Program!
It is time to expand! Not just the product offerings, but locations! Rob@Charter has condensed the SpringGate Estate Buildings and feel into one very cool location with a new architectural twist - we love it!
The SpringGate team can't wait until the Spring of 2019, as we open a new location in Mechanicsburg in Cumberland County just off of Rt. 15 at the Juncture of Lisburn and Arcona Road. We will integrate into community and Charter's "Great American Neighborhood" initiative of walkable neighborhoods that integrate commercial/experiential offerings like us! And, it is right beside one of our favorite restaurants: Thea's.
We're SO anxious we can't wait that long to meet new friends so.... we will do Free Tastings this Fall, on Saturday and Sunday Afternoons, at our custom shipping container to give everyone a "taste" of what the SpringGate Circus is like when it arrives this Spring.
The Village of Arcona includes homes integrated by sidewalks and walking trails into a village core of a dozen businesses, and we will be there. In fact we will be on the village green, the entire south side in fact, with plenty of parking behind our new location for those who don't live in the village.
Local Wine, Beer, Music, Food...
We can't totally recreate our historic 250 year old vineyard estate at The Crossroads of Arcona, but we know how to keep our vision and tradition of hospitality plus and bring it along. We also intend to add some features:
Festivals and Food Trucks!
SpringGate does love its Festivals, and we'll see them at The Crossroads at Arcona as well - with some Arcona-specific ones!
And yes, we will have at least one food truck available at The Crossroads at Arcona, even though we have a "Snack Bar." Who could deny some of the genius offerings of the best of SpringGate food trucks?
We'll be announcing who and when closer to our opening.
The Wine Slushy & SpringShine
Of course, we are going to have the Wine Slushy and SpringShine! It has to be a SpringGate tradition by now! Isn't this why Washington crossed the Delaware? For a cherry Wine Slushy, of course!
Maybe Wines ONLY Available at Arcona
We have some ideas (of course), and we'll see what we can pull off, but already there are a host of cellared wines that have never been released. Only the Wine Queen has the special key to get them out, and she's been saving them for The Crossroads at Arcona.
