This Saturday, April 28 from 12:00PM until 2:00PM we will be host a wine and food pairing at our store on South Richland Avenue. This is the first in a series of events that will occur over the Summer in our beer and wine stores!
Each event will feature a variety wines to be sampled out to customers! For the upcoming events, we have partnered with E&J Gallo Winery. We will also work with other local wineries for future events this summer.

In addition, we will also be offering food and candy pairings for each different wine, including Shrimp, Ribs, Seafood, Chicken, Cheese, Chocolate Chip Muffins, Strawberry Cheesecake, Kit Kats, and Starbursts!

“We are so excited to be offering food and wine pairings at several of our store locations. This is a great way to also tie in our key vendors, and get our customers involved and trying out delicious wine and food offerings,” said Robert Perkins, Vice President, Marketing.
Three more Rutter’s locations expanded their selection with wine on Friday, May 12th. The Rutter’s in Waynesboro, Mercersburg, and Hamburg all began wine sales last Friday. This makes 9 Rutter’s stores to sell beer, and 6 to sell both wine and beer!
Our customers are able to select from a variety of wines, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Merlot. This vast selection is arranged in front of the Beer Caves, inside the seating area.
Hours to buy wine do vary from beer, due to the PA Law Act 39. Customers are able to purchase wine Monday thru Saturday from 7:00AM until 11:00PM and on Sundays from 9:00AM until 11:00PM. Also, in conformity with Act 39, our customers will be able to purchase up to 3,000ml of wine. This equals 4 standard 750ml bottles and 2 large 1.5 liter bottles.
“Bringing wine to three more stores was a great way to kick-off another weekend. We are looking for more and more opportunities where we can give our customers what they need and provide them with the convenience they deserve. With summer right around the corner, this is the perfect time to expand our beer and wine selections,” said Robert Perkins, Vice President of Marketing.
