More Entrepreneurship in Buffalo Township

Following on the heals of Peg's Greenhouse, both the Post-Gazette and the Observer-Reporter picked up in the last few days on another example of budding entrepreneurship in Buffalo Township.

The P-G's Linda Taylor penned an article in Sunday's Washington section about Bovine Wines, a new winery on Route 40. Linda reports that the winery was opened three weeks ago by township residents Mike and Lynne Young.

O-R Business Editor Mike Bradwell also has an article today on the winery. From Mike's report:
The biggest anomaly about the Youngs' business is its location in a dry township.

The couple said it took several meetings with Buffalo Township supervisors to convince them they only wanted to sell their bottles of wine for drinking off the premises. While they offer samples of their output, the plastic sample cups are not much larger than a thimble.

"While Buffalo Township is a dry community, it is legal to open a winery in a dry community in Pennsylvania," Mike said, adding that the operation can't become a drinking establishment.
