Jackson Township, Monroe County – You can now have locally produced, sustainably made wine and spirits delivered right to your door. Mountain View Vineyard, Winery & Distillery has opened an online store.

Every day, the business owners, Randy and Linda Rice, hear customers ask if they can order wine and spirits online. Many say they love the idea of shopping locally, but it's not always convenient for them to drive to the winery tucked away in the hills of Jackson Township.

Randy noted, “Some people drove long distances to come to our place and were delighted to find a new favorite wine or spirit. But then they ended up buying wines they like less from the state store simply because it was more convenient.” State stores have a relatively small selection of Pennsylvania wines. Most are not produced sustainably.

Pennsylvanians have limited options for home alcohol delivery. The commonwealth does not allow out of state businesses to ship wine or spirits directly to customers in Pennsylvania.

Mountain View Vineyard, Winery & Distillery wants customers to enjoy wine and spirits responsibly. You must certify your are 21 or older to use the website. Someone 21 years old or older must sign for the delivery.

The new store will help the small, family-owned business continue growing, which in turn will help the local economy. Randy and Linda plan to hire several new staff members this year to help keep up with the growth.

The store features all of Mountain View Vineyard's Wine and Spirits. They're all made on the winery and distillery property on Neola Road. There's everything from a dry, peppery red Noiret that goes well with steak, to a bright, sweet Niagara white to pair with your favorite desserts. Those who prefer spirits might enjoy the apple pie moonshine or vodka infused with fresh fruit juice.

About Mountain View Vineyard, Winery & Distillery

A trip to the Finger Lakes region of New York State inspired Randy Rice to try grape growing. He started with 6 varieties and 70 vines on the split rail fence along his driveway. When those vines flourished, he and his wife Linda cleared their nearly 6 acre property and planted a vineyard. After more than a decade of hard work, they have grown to more than 2000 vines.

The winery is an eco-friendly operation with geothermal and solar energy.
