Hungry Run Wine & Spirits began as a partnership in a small barn in the rural countryside of Vira, PA, outside of Lewistown. Our name derives from the Hungry Run stream that runs through the beautiful farmlands here in our valley. Partners Steve Flood and Donny Logan prided themselves on producing quality wines & spirits utilizing the freshest grapes and juice locally and around the world.
Hungry Run opened its doors to the public in December of 2015, selling in two satellite locations: Wilson's Meats & Groceries in Lewistown and Squire Brown's in Reedsville. It then branched out to a location in Spring Mills - "Marrara's at Tussey" event center (now closed), and The Barn at Lemont in State College (we moved out in December 2018), a local business co-op. In November of 2017 we redesigned and expanded our tasting room at Squire Brown's to include our spirits, along with tables for parties & groups.
In August 2018, due to our immense growth in a few short years, we moved the wine manufacturing to a new location in Lewistown, at the old Zeke Acker's building. And with enough space, we opened a retail shop for both our wine and spirits that November. The response was great and we were excited to offer our wine & spirits at that end of Lewistown.
After much growth and expansion, a mutual decision was made in May of 2019 to separate the wine and spirits so that each could focus on their own product. Steve & Katy Flood, owners, have been in the forefront of the business since the beginning and are focused on making Hungry Run Wine Cellars a household name in the state of in Pennsylvania. We are focused on creating delicious, creative, fun wines that satisfy both the sophisticated wine drinker to the novice. Wine shouldn't really be that serious - so we aren't "pinky out" wine makers. We discover what you like and we make it, with our sweet, flavored wines being some of the BEST in Pennsylvania.
Our motto is:
Great Wine. Great Friends. Great Day.
A little about the winemaker...
Winemaker, Steve Flood, has been producing wine in his home, experimenting with both red and white wines, since January 2011. His wines were such a hit with family and friends that he decided he would realize a dream and become an entrepreneur. Steve is passionate about creating wines that his customers will enjoy. From his unique Crimson Smoke to the creative Rockin' & Rollin Rita's (our margarita-style wines), he is always experimenting and coming up with great flavor profiles.
Our hope is that you will not only enjoy our wine, but enjoy our Hungry Run family. We are dedicated to serving our wines all over the state at wine festivals and are committed to great customer service everywhere we go. Every single person who works for us is ready to make it a fun experience to taste our wine! We hope to serve you soon!
