LUNA Wine & Table is the culmination of John & Doreen, who moved to NEPA over ten years ago from New Jersey leaving behind professional careers for the country life. Both had a longstanding love affair with food and wine so opening a winery was inevitable. They started out with a small farm by acquiring a milk cow, chickens, ducks, and Nigerian Dwarf Goats. Then came the gardening. Heirloom vegetable varieties with flavors they never experienced before. They tried new recipes and delved into international cooking. This was happening alongside another passion they had carried with them from the suburbs: making fermented foods. Live culture kombucha, sauerkraut, kimchi, natto, yogurts, cheese, sour cream, water kefir and milk kefir, tempeh, nukka pot, the list goes on. It was the experimental aspect of making foods and drinks that they loved that ultimately catapulted them to starting their winery restaurant.
Luna is a boutique winery. A simple Google search of the term sums up perfectly what a boutique winery is about.
"A winery producing less than 10,000 cases annually is considered a boutique winery. Other terms associated with boutique wineries and wines include small-run, limited-production, hand-crafted and artisanal. Oct 3, 2019" And for John & Doreen, that is the vision. Small and artisanal, meaning the highest craftsmanship invested in the making of food and drinks.
