The Renegade Winery

Located about 90 minutes from Union County, the Renegade Winery is a lovely urban tasting room in Pennsylvania.

The tasting room has a great vibe – very casual with cozy nooks and a long bar.










Fun swag (I bought a shirt) and cute but not over the top decorations.

The wines were great and the service was friendly.

Here are the wines:

  • Chardonnay – not our favorite. One star from Jean, 2 from Wayne.
  • Riesling – Meh.
  • Pinot Grigio – Big hit. Brought a few bottles home. Stone fruit up front with a little citrus. 3 stars from Jean, 2 from Wayne who typically likes dryer whites.
  • Have More fun – this white wine had so much grapefruit up front that I gave it only 1 star but Wayne gave it 3.
  • Soigne – Wow. So good. Green apple, stone fruit, citrus. We each gave it 3 stars and brought a few bottles home.
  • Pink Crime – nice for a dry rose. Very fruity but the acid was a little off putting. 2 stars from each of us.
  • Renegade blend – Even though this red blend was 21% chamourcin, I only gave it one star. They called it blackberry but I thought it was watery grape juice. Wayne gave it 2 stars.
  • Guilty – sweet concord grape wine. 2 stars from Wayne, 1 from Jean.
  • Cherry – Just fermented cherries, this was too fruity for me (1 star) but Wayne gave it 3 stars. A few bottles came home with us. It’s going to be great with a little brandy.

Overall winery rating:

  • Wayne – 5 stars. So much fun!
  • Jean – 5 stars. Loved the cozy nooks. Great wine.

Renegade is open daily from 11am. It closes at 9pm Monday-Wednesday, 11pm on Thursday, 12am on Fridays and Saturdays, and 7pm on Sundays.
