Vynecrest Winery in Breinigsville recently released their first vintage of oaked Chardonnay. They've also just released a very limited amount of unoaked or "naked" Chardonnay.
To celebrate, they've created Chardonnay Weekend on Saturday, June 5 & Sunday, June 6 from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. There will be tastings of both Chardonnays along with a food pairing of Lemon-Chardonnay Goat Cheese from StoneCroft Farms in Macungie. Both the oaked and naked Chardonnays will be available for purchase all weekend. Wine lovers can vote on which one they like best and be entered into to a raffle to win a free night's stay at the Hyatt Place Bethlehem.
StoneCroft Farms is a local producer of goat cheese and a fellow member of the Buy Fresh Buy Local initiative. Their cheese is sold locally in only a few choice restaurants and markets. So be sure to drop in to Vynecrest for samples and the opportunity to buy some Lemon-Chardonnay, Dill and Garlic-Chive StoneCroft Farms cheese and the two Vynecrest Chardonnay wines.
There will also be live music in the Vyneskeller Wine Bar from 1:30 - 4:30 p.m. both days. On Saturday is Arianne Rox and on Sunday is Art Tartara.
Chardonnay Weekend is free to attend and open to the public. For directions and more information, visit www.vynecrest.com or call 610-398-7525.
