Lehigh Valley Wine Tastes Even Better Paired with Local Food During Vino in the Valley Event
February 9th, 2017 posted by Guest Author
So you know that the Lehigh Valley has wineries and you’ve been to a couple of them, but did you know it has a wine trail made up of nine wineries? Each year the wineries team up for six annual wine trail events, the first of which is coming up in March. And if you’ve only visited one or two of the stops along the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail, then this event is a great way to get introduced to all nine of them.
Taking place on weekends in March, the Vino in the Valley Passport Program treats passport holders to food and wine pairings at each winery throughout the month. Get started by purchasing a passport for $35 at one of our member wineries or online via EventBrite (deadline for online orders is Friday, February 24).
Then plan out which wineries you will visit each weekend based on their planned food and wine pairings. Tip: You can start at any of our wineries and go in any order. Don’t try to visit all nine wineries in one weekend! Several of the wineries have teamed up with local restaurants and food trucks this year for fun food and wine pairings. (Note: food portions are tasting sized.)
The pairings are a great way to explore how different types of food and wine pair together so you can try it at home. Taste wines at each winery you visit and purchase your favorites by the bottle or case to take home with you.
Passport holders who get their passports stamped during their visits to at least eight of the nine wineries, will be entered into a raffle to win one of the 10 Lehigh Valley Getaway Packages. Each package includes overnight accommodations at an area hotel, B&B or inn, dinner and other amenities. Properties include Historic Hotel Bethlehem, Glasbern Inn, Lafayette Inn, and Bear Creek Mountain Resort, among others.
Vino in the Valley is the perfect annual event for wine lovers who want to discover Lehigh Valley!
