Get ready for a winter filled with fun!

This is a page for Old Man Winter. Paging Old Man Winter.

If you’re like me, you love the change of seasons. This year it seems we’ve been stuck in fall mode in Lehigh Valley … until now that is! The temps have finally dropped to where there is a chance for the natural stuff to fall from the sky, even though that still hasn’t happened yet besides the few flurries I am staring at out my window at the present time. Luckily, for those of us that are winter enthusiasts, we’ve got two great resorts who have the capabilities to make a ton of the white stuff without the Snow God coming into play.

Cheers to the inaugural Cider and Wine Festival!

The Lehigh Valley Cider and Wine Festival was a perfect Saturday afternoon. The Lehigh Valley IronPigs nailed the inaugural, sold-out event right on the field of Coca-Cola Park. The festival featured hard cider and wine tastings from the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail and local and regional cideries.

Cider is my favorite drink of choice and wine comes in at a close second so you could say I was living the dream (at least in my eyes). From the moment my friends and I made our entrance, we knew we were in for a treat.

Join the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail for Chambourcin Weekend

Every March a bunch of us get together to experience “Vino in the Valley”, one of the many events throughout the year organized by the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail. It is a lot of fun because by then we can’t wait to get out of the house after a long winter of cabin fever.

Well, coming up on October 17th & 18th, we can take the scenic drive around Lehigh Valley to the nine family owned wineries that make up the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail before we batten down the hatches for winter. It will also be a great time to check out the fall foliage as we celebrate Chambourcin Weekend.

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.
