March 10, 2012 - PRLog -- Tickets for the Nicholson Volunteer Fire Company’s third annual “Vineyards by the Viaduct” Wine Festival are now on sale and can be purchased at Peoples Neighborhood Bank branches, Lochen and Chase PC in Nicholson and Tunkhannock as well as on-line at www.nicholsonfireco.com.  Advanced tickets are only $15.  Designated Driver Tickets are just $5.  This year’s event is taking place on Saturday, May 12th, 2012 at the Carnival Grounds, Park Avenue, just off route 92, in Nicholson, PA from 11AM until 5PM. Tickets at the gate will be $25.    

Five of Pennsylvania’s finest wineries are definitely confirmed for the event with others expected to be added. The list includes Endless Mountains’ favorites, Nimble Hill and the Grovedale Winery and Vineyard.  Jeff Homer owner of Grovedale says “it’s a pleasure to go to the Nicholson festival.  It’s a lot of fun and we’ve met many great people.”  Grovedale only takes part in a few select events. Homer expresses an appreciation for local volunteer organizations and the men and women who give of themselves by taking an active role in helping others.  Nimble Hill Vineyard and Winery also limits their attendance at such events, but have managed to schedule in “Vineyards by the Viaduct” knowing that one-hundred percent of the proceeds benefit the fire company.   2012 Pennsylvania Farm Show Medalists, The Antler Ridge Winery are also schedule to be part of the event as well as Northeast PA favorites, Maiolatesi’s Wine Cellars.  New to the event this year will be the Sand Castle Winery out of Bucks County and Peace Valley Winery of Chalfont, PA.   “We are happy with the response we’ve received from these wineries. They are a good representation of the area’s best.  We are still waiting for confirmation from others” said Nicholson Fire Company’s Rick Lochen.  

Along with samplings of over 40 wines, attendees of the event will enjoy live music by Twist of Fate, Rock-A-Billy & the 45’s and Retro Rocket.  The day is also set to offer a variety of delicious foods including Ma Greenley's Barbecue and the Fire Company's Potato Pancake.  With many of last year’s vendors planning to return to this year’s “Vineyards by the Viaduct” event, there are still a few spaces available for new and unique vendors.  Food, jewelry, and arts/crafts, and other specialty vendors are welcome. Those interested are asked to contact Richard Lochen at 570-942-7481 to inquire about the event or make reservations.  

The Nicholson Wine Festival which last year drew a rainy day crowd of over 600 is looking to be bigger and better this year.  Commemorative Wine Glasses will be given to the first 1300 people through the gates. This Fire Company event is being sponsored by businesses committed to the area including Southwestern Energy, Peoples Neighborhood Bank, Williams Partners LP, Gertrude Hawk Chocolates, Lochen and Chase PC, and Rosenn, Jenkins and Greenwald LLP.  All proceeds from this annual fundraiser benefit the Nicholson Fire Company’s operating expenses.  The Nicholson Fire Company is a 100 percent volunteer organization.
