Jason & Deb Harris launched Stone & Key Cellars in Montgomeryville in Autumn 2013. Leveraging their experience serving and supplying winemakers for more than 20 years, they aspired to offer patrons a novel experience where you get to create your own wine at a state-of-the-art commercial winery. The winery offerings will include the best grapes we can find from renowned growing areas across California, Washington, and Northern Italy. If you’re not quite ready to leap into a vat of grapes, we will also be offering great winemaking opportunities from our vast selection of wine kits.
DESIGN YOUR OWN WINE
At Stone & Key Cellars, you are integral to the winemaking process and it all starts before the grapes even arrive. Come to an informational tasting session where you’ll sample wines made from the grapes we are offering, and talk with our professional winemakers before deciding what wine you want to make. Choose from dozens of varietals, or we can help you design your perfect blend.
THE STONE & KEY EXPERIENCE
Invite family and friends to share in the production of a full barrel (285 bottles), or bring colleagues from work for an unforgettable team-building activity. Either way, you’ll experience centuries-old winemaking traditions including: crushing and destemming grapes, pressing your wine, the art of blending, and bottling (the final step before drinking!) at our modern winemaking facility. Most importantly, you will be enjoying your wine and talking about the great time you had together for years to come.
Our team of professional winemakers consists of Winemaker Dave Salaba & Assistant Winemaker Mark Pagliaro, who both hold certifications from the prestigious winemaking program at U.C. Davis. Combined, they carry over 40 years of winemaking experience. Joe Maglaty, our Ph.D. analytical chemist, will analyze samples from your barrel in our advanced wine testing lab and will guide you through the winemaking process. Throughout the process our team will offer feedback and guidance to help you unlock your true winemaking potential!
