The wine selection was varietal

Earlier this month I was an exhibitor at a Lehigh Valley business to business trade expo. I have as much fun at these as I do the out of state shows, but for a different reason. At our local shows I get to catch up with people I know that I don’t often see otherwise. In a pre-show walk around I visited Jake from Bear Creek Mountain Resort at his booth.

So, we decided to seize the day and go for a tasting or two, three, four, five or six! It was about 4:30 p.m. and we thought it might be slow since they were only open until 6 p.m. Well, we were wrong. The winery was jamming and we had to fight for a spot at the tasting bars they had.

I think it’s because dads generally don’t want a big fuss made about them, even on Father’s Day. So, it may be difficult to figure out just what to get the guy who probably doesn’t want you to get him anything.
