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.

Wine And Cheese on the Wine Trail

What is more perfect than a glass of wine? How about a glass of wine paired with perfect cheeses to go with it?

I find there are two ways to do wine and cheese pairings. First, you can look for similar flavors in both the wine and cheese for a safe pairing.

Tour Martin Guitar

By Sarah Mason, Discover Lehigh Valley Intern

There’s something pretty crazy about witnessing a man holding and playing a guitar that cost about as much as your college tuition. Though, this specific guitar is from C.F. Martin & Co and it has a lot of beautiful pearl in it and sounds amazing. It’s beauty almost makes you think that it’s not crazy that it costs about as much as your college tuition.

All along the wine trail

Every year I write about my traditional March pilgrimage to all the wineries of the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail. This year the event was just called the “March Passport Program” missing that “insanity” word associated with some random indoor ball games held around the same time. I think you know what I mean.

We planned to go over St. Patrick’s Day weekend but one couple had to drop out leaving my sister Kathy with two extra passports. A few text messages later and new plans were made for this past weekend. Her son and his girlfriend would be joining us from Glen Bernie Maryland. First-timers!
