Wheeling Edition: Good Mansion Wines
One of my absolute favorite finds in all of West Virginia is Good Mansion Wines.
This Wheeling gem offers luxury wines, pastas, chocolates, condiments, olive oil and more in a grand house.
As you wind your way back through this shop, you see more and more goodies available for purchase.
And once you get to the back of the building, it opens to this small, bright kitchen!
It's full of smoked meats, imported cheeses and fresh pastas.
And, there are house-made sandwiches available!
But these aren't your ordinary sandwiches.
They're full of incredible ingredients, like Prosciutto di Parma, Tallegio, black truggle, and Balsamico di Modena.
There were two sandwiches assembled when I went up to the counter, and I went with 5 - Il Tirolese: Speck, Taleggio, Acetomodena Balsamico di Modena, with greens.
And, I also picked up a small chocolate caramel tart.
There are just a handful of chairs inside, so I walked out to the front of the building.
As I opened my bag, I discovered breadsticks and olives to accompany my sandwich.
I unwrapped my sandwich, which was quite large.
The crusty bread gave way to a tangy cheese and the sweetness of the balsamic vinegar was great.
Which ones have you tried?
