Q: What is involved with the wine making process?
A: At Stone and Key, we offer a barrel program for our customers. This occurs during our harvest season where you will choose your varietals and put a deposit towards your very own full or partial barrel. Depending on if you choose red, white or rose, you will follow your wine on it’s journey from crush to press then to barrel. If you are interested in making wine, a member of our wine-making team will make sure that you understand each step and answer any questions you may have. It’s a fun process that is truly rewarding when you walk away with your very own wine and custom labels. Minimum quantity is a 1/4 barrel, and the sky is the limit from there!
Q: Do I need to book an appointment to come in and do a flight?
A: We’re open seven days a week, and there is no appointment needed if you come in during our normal tasting room hours. We do ask that you call ahead if you have a group of eight or more, so that we can have staff ready to meet your party. Please note we offer “tastings” as a flight. You may choose any 4 off of our wines and ciders menu or upgrade to our Winemaker Signature flight, which is 4 wines hand-chosen by our winemakers.
Q: Do you offer Guided Tastings? A: We sure do!! Our highly knowledgeable and extremely entertaining winemakers are always up for guiding you and your guests through the complexity of our delightful wines. No group is too small, please allow at least a week for reservations and prices vary depending on the amount of people in your party. Our winemakers will delight your senses with 6 Signature Series wines and, as always, a little something extra direct from the barrel. Prices start at $25 per person and can be scheduled directly through Matt at email@example.com
Q: Can I get your wines and ciders anywhere besides your winery?
A: Yes! We bring a selection of our wines and ciders to the Ambler, Perkasie, and Media Farmers Markets. We also have many of our wines and ciders available in different bars and restaurants around the area, of which you can see a partial list HERE. Limited Shoprite and Wegmans locations carry a number of our products, as well.
Q: Can I bring food to your winery?
A: UPDATE: PA COVID RULES AND REGULATIONS require any operation that sells alcohol to also sell food and one is required to purchase food while enjoying wines and ciders on site. Stone & Key Cellars does offer a small menu during the week and a larger menu on the weekends from Stone and Key Grille. You are, also, welcome to bring food to our Montgomeryville location, but you will still need to purchase food in order for us to comply with the new restrictions.
Q: Do you have gluten free options on your wine and cider menu?
A: Neither grapes, apples, or any of the other ingredients that we use contain any gluten. However, some barrels are sealed with wheat based products so our barrel aged beverages may contain trace amounts of gluten. We offer many products (Keys series, most ciders, most white wines, select reds) which spend no time in barrels and are therefore completely gluten free. Check with Stone & Key staff about the process each wine goes though to confirm it has not spent time in barrels.
Q: How can I find out about events and such going on at your winery?
A: Follow us on social media! We keep a regular schedule of events on our website, but for the most up to date, check us out on Facebook (Facebook.com/stoneandkey), Instagram (@stoneandkeycellars), and Twitter (@stoneandkey)!
