House’s Loss: The Missed Sweet Treats and Salty Eats Road Trip Part 4

Palate Cleansing

House always seemed to prefer his wine with a fistful of painkillers as a chaser, so it’s hard to imagine his poor taste buds could savor anything. Wilson was clearly the gourmand, and surely would have been tempted to pull off the road if he saw the sign for a winery.

For over 25 years, Allegro has produced incredible vintages with their own unique York County flare. Sample splendid wine and learn everything you ever wanted to know about the winemaking process from resident vintner and owner, Carl Helrich. Be sure to try the Cabernet Franc, and a local favorite, Chambourcin.

While Wilson enjoyed a few elegant wines, I’m sure he also would have enjoyed swapping food recipes and wine pairings. He was such a foodie! Surely he would have wanted to try baking the Chocolate Port Wine Cake.
