Sipping on Sundays. That’s what the High & Low Winery on state Route 18 in Sharon Township offers now that it is open Sundays.
The winery, which opened in 2015, is now open seven days a week year round. Sunday hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Matt Snyder, who owns the business with his wife, Kate, told me this week.
Food is available throughout the day, and Sunday activities for patrons are being scheduled, including board games and card games on colder Sundays. Balloon tosses — outside, of course — are being planned for warmer weather. A listing of events is at www.searchhighandlow.com.
The menu includes standard winery fare such as meat and cheese boards, as well as paninis and flatbreads, including one dubbed “Hello Dolly” that is topped with caprese salad fixings: tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, balsamic glaze and basil — grown at the winery.
The winery building -- seen above in a 2015 picture by Beacon Journal staff photographer Karen Schiely -- and two young vineyards sit amid houses and commercial buildings on land that has been in Matt Snyder’s family for 100-plus years.
When they opened the place, Matt and Kate Snyder — both lawyers — said their idea was to create a casual spot that would appeal to residents of the nearby homes that have sprouted up n recent years in the area west of Montrose.
The two invested $1 million in building High & Low - including a production area in the basement and the vineyards.
The winery building features the Low Tasting Room downstairs and the High Tasting Room upstairs, both with views of the vineyard planted with La Crescent vines.
The Low Tasting Room is an open space, with an industrial/rustic feel, metal tables and wood and metal chairs. Guests have a view of the deck and patio behind the building, next to the vineyard.
The High Tasting room, with two balconies overlooking the vineyard, boasts cathedral ceilings, five chandeliers and small mirrored tables.
