At the upcoming Clarks Summit Second Friday Art Walk, in addition to finding exhibits by regional fine artists at participating venues, representatives from the Jessup winery, Capra Collina, will be pouring samples of their artisan wines outside of The Sunrise Café, 212 Depot Street.

Charles Charlesworth, president, Arts Council of the Abingtons, said Capra Collina is one of many wineries scheduled to participate in the Clarks Summit Art and Wine Festival planned for Aug.10, noon to 8:30 p.m.

“We are featuring one of the many wineries that will be attending the Wine Festival,” said Charlesworth. “The Sunrise (Café) will also be open that evening featuring some of their specialties that they will be serving at the Art and Wine Festival.”

Kevin Betti started the winery in 2004, and son, Gregg took over in 2012.

“As a family we have been making wine for generations. I learned from my father and my father learned from his father and so on…,” said Gregg.

“We produce some excellent dry red and white wines, but our niche seems to be fruit wines. Our number one seller is Therapy, our second seller is OMG.”

According to Gregg, both Therapy and OMG are blends of sweet fruit and dry wines.

“…Producing what we hope is the perfect balance of sweetness (semi-sweet),” he added.

“I consider our wines to be artisan because most our wines are blends which we create ourselves…For example; Bianco Classico is a blend of Muscato, Sauvignon Blanc, Verdicchio and Soave Classico. Therapy and OMG are guarded secret blends. Also our winemaking process is much hands-on and very much a family affair.”

Gregg and his brother, Tim, are the vintners, and several other family members help with the bottling and labeling.

Their wines are available at Capra Collina, 132 Constitution Ave., Jessup.

Art Walk hours are 5 to 9 p.m.
