Vynecrest alters its Web appearance

The Web site for Vynecrest Winery in Breinigsville, Pa., has a new look. Talked to owner John Landis yesterday and he said they unveiled it earlier this week.

“We’re still feeling the pain,” Landis said, laughing. “Some things just didn’t go the way we wanted. But we were anxious to try it out.”

Landis said the site rearranges some information and includes a link to its
award-winning wines. At some point they’d like to add more links to other wineries and regional hotels, motels and entertainment sites.

Otherwise, things generally are quiet outside of the holiday sales. Landis said business was brisk for their recent holiday open house. Perhaps the only other news is the winery’s participation in
Christkindlmarkt in Historic Bethlehem. Vynecrest is producing gluhwein, or mulled wine, for the festival.

The one other thing Landis touted was an instructional series on wine series on “Go to pawinelife,” Landis said. “There’s a gentleman in your area [York] who’s doing videos at different wineries on different subjects. There’s like seven or eight different wineries, one in Adams County, a couple others as well. They are sort of interesting for people who want to learn a little about wine.”
