The winery owners of the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail’s nine member wineries are often asked when is a good time to explore the trail. And while it’s true that any time of the year is great for visiting, special events make the trip along the trail even more fun because there’s more to see and do.

The Wine Trail’s next event is the annual Harvest Weekend – The Butcher, The Baker, & The Winemaker on Saturday, September 12 and Sunday, September 13. It takes place in the midst of harvest season, when the vineyards are busy with workers removing the mature grape clusters from the vines, which are then crushed to remove their juice.  The juice is then processed and placed into wood barrels or stainless steel tanks for fermenting.

The Brick’s menu is expansive

I would live off pizza and Italian food if I could, and I’m not joking. Luckily for me, the Lehigh Valley has plenty of top-notch Italian restaurants and pizzerias that make me feel like I’m eating handmade pasta in Naples.

One of my favorite Italian restaurants is The Brick in Bethlehem, Pa. The family-run restaurant specializes in thin-crust wood-fired pizzas, leaving the crust with a wonderful charred finish. The Brick now serves brunch, adding unique Italian twists on typical brunch dishes. There’s nothing like it in the Valley.
