Nouveau Weekend takes place at all nine Lehigh Valley wineries on Saturday, November 20 and Sunday, November 21.
This event is your first chance to taste the young vintages from the most recent harvest. It's also a great time to pick up wines to have with your holiday meals or to give as gifts to family and friends.
Our wineries will be planning a range of activities and specials, ranging from food and wine pairings to live music performances. Highlights include:
- Vynecrest will be pairing their 2010 Vintage Nouveau Beaujolais made from the Gamay grape with pulled roast turkey barbecue sliders. In the Vyneskeller wine bar, Arianne Rox will be playing on Saturday, and Rob & Marty on Sunday, from 1-4:30 p.m. Free admission.
- Franklin Hill Vineyards will be pairing with the best part of Thanksgiving dinner - DESSERT! They'll be releasing Nouvelle Seyval Blanc and pairing it with pumpkin bread, apple crisp and chocolate.
- Pinnacle Ridge Winery will be featuring neighbor Dietrich's Meats' Bratwurst (veal, pork and parsley), Knockwurst (garlic wurst) and German Weiners ( all beef and seasonings.) Home made cabbage and noodles (vegetarian) will be the perfect side. Sample these German classics with their Traminette or Vidal Blanc. For red lovers, they'll be pouring a 2007 Veritas.
