“No matter what you prefer…
you’ll find a favorite here!”
At Calvaresi Winery, we pride ourselves in quality small batch wine production. We offer a wide variety of award winning wines. Our atmosphere is friendly and fun. Our guests love our quaint country location. It all began in 1981 in a Reading row home basement. As people started to discover the quality wines being produced it quickly outgrew being a home winery and moved to its location in Bernville, PA.
In 2014, Tom Calvaresi decided it was time to retire from the wine business and the winery was sold to Shannon Birosik. We continue to produce award winning wines that are enjoyed in a casual laid-back atmosphere. You may have noticed a change to our label. We assure you your old favorites are still here with the only change being the label. While we pay a great homage to our heritage of Calvaresi Winery, we needed to add our own spirit. That spirit is Soaked!
Soaked is our brand that we feel shares the best of the past, present and the future. So we have added a few new wines to celebrate. We invite you to stop in and try our wines. Stay and enjoy a glass indoors or out. Enjoy our outdoor music festivals in the warmer weather. There’s lots of fun happening here. Join our mailing list stay in touch. We look forward to sharing our passion with you.

ABOUT OUR WINEMAKER
Shannon Birosik graduated from Delaware Valley College in 2000 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Food Science. She then began working for Just Born Inc. and quickly found her niche in product development on the Peeps Brand. Shannon loves creating new products to share with people for their enjoyment.
While her career was fruitful, her desire to own her own business was always burning. She was an at home winemaker for many years, and in 2014 decided it was time to go bigger, in search of career that would allow more time for her family. A career that would allow her to share the fruits of her hard work with her children. Soaked Wines is truly a family business. You never know who in the family you will find working in the winery. There’s no “corporate policy” at Soaked!
