Meet Lauren & Andy Rim! Lauren is a teacher, avid reader, and just loves to dance while Andy likes to spend his time playing guitar and writing music. The Rims also have a passion for travel and can't wait to get out and explore once these crazy times are over. One of their favorite adventures together was island hopping last June in the southern carribean! But if you ask them, there's really nothing better than relaxing at the winery with friends and family listening to the lives tunes. “We love the atmosphere at Penns Woods and it's a great go-to anytime there's nice weather.” Aside from the usually winery weekend hangs, their other favorite events include our annual vertical tastings as well as our monthly wine education series, especially the blending class!
As you might have noticed, they love it so much here, most of the photos above are from their engagement shoot in the vineyard and around our property! Lauren and Andy are a super fun and outgoing part of our Wine Club and it's been great to see the community of friends they have within our Club too, hanging out with Matt & Linsey Anderson, Nitasha & Ryan Smith and Julia & Dan Shay! In fact they have together taken their passion for wine on the road, recently popping down to Virginia for a wine tasting tour of the Monticello Wine Trail!
Lauren's favorite wine from Penns Woods is the Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, specifically, the 2009 vintage. For Andy, he also enjoys more full-bodied reds. He is into good Chiantis and Meritage blends, but his go-to at Penns Woods is the Cabernet Franc Reserve 2016! Since current circumstances have kept them from being able to enjoy wine socially, they have started to appreciate pairing wines with the meals they make at home. In fact, these two big, bold red lovers have cultivated a new found appreciation for white wines through their cooking and pairing with various dishes! Although still, our Proprietor Reserve 2014 has been a popular choice for them recently (we've seen the evidence on our Wine Club Facebook group!).
We are so grateful to have members such as the Rims. They not only are one of our early supporters, but they are always actively engaged with the various special events we put together at the winery and their passion for knowledge is why we do what we do in the first place. We love seeing them together and cannot wait to have them back enjoying our live music out on our lawn. Cheers to this incredible couple!
