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. Please note, we do not offer flights after 5PM on Fridays.
Q: Do you offer Guided Tastings? A: UPDATE: We are not offering Guided Tastings at this time. Check back soon for more updates
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, Horsham, Pretzel Park in Manayunk 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: Stone & Key Cellars does offer a small menu during the week and a larger hot menu on the Friday evenings and Saturdays. While we have been fully BYOF in the past, we are working towards 100% Stone & Key Grille for all food at the winery. We will be doing this in an orderly fashion and will eventually provide a cut-off date for BYOF.
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)!
