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. We were discussing all the fun events they had coming up but my ears perked up when he mentioned their Harvest Wine Festival.

I e-mailed the information to my sister, Kathy, and her husband, Don, asking if they would want to join Don and I. Luckily they were available.

Pinnacle Ridge Winery Taste Testing on a Saturday Afternoon

It was Saturday afternoon and Dave and I sat watching TV wondering what we should do with ourselves. We were too lazy to go for a walk or ride bikes. We really didn’t want to go shopping either. Then it struck us. We remembered going to the Food & Wine Festival at Sands Bethlehem, and we absolutely fell in love with one of the bubbly “wines” we had from Pinnacle Ridge Winery, a local Lehigh Valley winery.

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.

Top 5 Things to Do For Father’s Day in Lehigh Valley

America on Wheels

Why are dads seemingly always much harder to buy for than moms? Is it because moms like more stuff or because dads always seem to have what they want?

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.

Galen Glen on the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail

It was Chambourcin weekend on the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail this past weekend and what a glorious weekend it was!  We had absolutely no permanent plans other than some minor projects around the house this past weekend, so when I mentioned to my husband it was Chambourcin weekend he was excited! Of course he was out of his favorite Chambourcin wine from Galen Glen Winery.

We seem to be busy every year on this weekend so this was a special treat for us, and on top of it all, it was a beautiful sunny fall day. With our neighbor friends in tow we hopped in the car and took off for Galen Glen winery in Andreas, PA. The leaves were a little past their prime, more orange colors than red in the trees but still a beautiful show of fall leaves. I would have to say Galen Glen is one of our favorite wineries with a wonderful panoramic gorgeous view!

Clover Hill Vineyard & Winery

The past two weekends were great for people who like visiting and having a great time at Lehigh Valley wineries. The weekend before last, the Large Flowerheads Trio played in the Vyneskeller at Vynecrest. The place was packed with people singing and playing tambourines along with the band as they went through the hits of the sixties and seventies. Of course, wine and snacks were available for purchase. Three of the four of us split a bottle of Vynecrest’s Pinot Grigio – a great pick! Three hours of the Flowerheads along with wine makes for a perfectly good Saturday afternoon. The folks at Vynecrest are having entertainment on a regular basis.

The following Saturday I was off to Clover Hill for their wine and Martins event. Dick Boak and Craig Thatcher from Martin Guitars were there and wine was available for all. Dick told the Martin Guitar company history and as each era passed, Craig played music from that era with a guitar from that time. The guitar from the 1850’s sounded great as did the Eric Clapton model from a couple of years ago. Once again I had the Pinot Grigio and sat back to hear the story of a great company, accompanied by great guitars. Craig performs pretty regularly at Clover Hill.
