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 Abel Opera House, Sigal Bridal Gallery, and the Sigal Museum all have one very big thing in common: their location. The Abel Opera House and Sigal Bridal Gallery evolved to what is now the historic downtown Easton’s Sigal Museum. I say “evolved” as the museum still pays homage to these previous tenants in many ways through their exhibits. Opening in the summer of 2010, the Sigal Museum is a gem in the historic downtown, flying a bright red banner reading “History Here” on its exterior. The museum is a mere block from the Easton Farmers’ Market, and a must-see if you are in the area! There is something in this museum for everyone – adults and children alike.

The sign says it all.
