Wines of Gibsonia presentation

• Sept. 29 is a rare Sunday in Pittsburgh — there is no Steelers game. So why not head to Northern Tier Public Library for The Wines of Gibsonia, presented by Frank Mazzotta of Mazzotta Winery.

Take the opportunity to sample small-batch, handcrafted wines that were created right here in Gibsonia. The wines available for tasting will be: Cabernet, Pinot Grigio, Niagara (Silver Medal, Great American International Wine Competition), Mango (Gold Medal, Great American International Wine Competition), and Marionberry. To pair with the wine, the afternoon will also include food stations featuring sweet and savory appetizers. The tasting will begin at 4 p.m.

Tickets are $30 per person and available at the library. The library is at 4015 Dickey Road, Gibsonia. For details or to register, call 724-449-2665.
