The founders and owners of Folino Estate Winery in Greenwich Township have opened Vintner’s Inn in Kutztown, offering a wine-inspired boutique hotel experience.
“We hope the inn provides a warm welcome to everyone who chooses to stay with us,” said Jackie Coccia, marketing assistant at Vintner’s Inn. “We love the town of Kutztown and we hope to bring the same energy Folino Estate brings to its guests but in a different form.”
Marco and Andrea Folino purchased the former Main Street Inn in May and soon after opened a new boutique hotel, Vintner’s Inn by Folino Estate Winery.
“We are so excited to add a little Folino touch to this charming building that is rich with the history of our community,” said the couple in the opening announcement.
Although owning and operating a winery has always been the dream of Marco and Andrea Folino, the new Vintner’s Inn is their dream, too — only heightened.
With Andrea Folino’s vision and a design used to build Folino Estate Winery, the inn’s eight bedrooms will each be renovated one at a time. Vintner’s Inn will be open and functional while renovations take place.
“Currently, we are in the process of branding the building and creating a cohesive design within,” said Coccia. “It’s quaint and charming.”
Each room, set up to accommodate two guests, has its own private bathroom with a corner shower, and most feature a claw foot tub. All rooms feature a mini-fridge, wireless internet, cable television, hairdryer and bath amenities, iron and ironing board.
“Some rooms have balcony access that helps in the peacefulness of your morning coffee,” she said.
Guests of legal age receive a glass of wine and charcuterie at 3 pm, along with a glass of wine upon arrival if during normal check-in hours.
“We will be immersing our winery characteristics but in a subtle way. Each room is named after some of our favorite wines and all wines that you can find at the winery, as well as wine and charcuterie every afternoon,” said Coccia.
Rooms include the Merlot Room, Moscato Room, Pinot Room and Sangiovese Room.
In the morning, a European-style breakfast can be enjoyed out in the courtyard garden. Bike rental is also offered for a leisurely stroll down Main Street.
Guests have the option to add on enhancements to their stay, such as chocolate-covered strawberries and a bottle of sparkling wine, or a bouquet of flowers plus so many more options, said Coccia.
“We are so honored to be able to continue to serve the Kutztown community and beyond. We hope each and every guest enjoys their stay at Vintner’s Inn,” said Coccia. “Stay tuned on our social media as we continue to share updates on renovations!”
