Save the Date for Chambourcin Weekend

The Lehigh Valley Wine Trail will once again celebrate the region’s official wine grape during Chambourcin Weekend on Saturday, October 15 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Sunday, October 16 from noon – 5 p.m.

The Chambourcin is the only wine grape grown by all nine area wineries.

Wineries will feature wine tastings, live entertainment, food and wine pairings, and other activities. Event hours at all of the wineries are Saturday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon – 5 p.m.

Chambourcin is a very versatile wine grape. Local wineries craft it into a wide range of styles, from rosé and sparkling, to dry barrel aged and port.  In the greater Lehigh Valley there are more than 40 acres of Chambourcin which will ferment into 150,000 bottles of wine. 

Details on each winery’s food and wine pairings for the event will be announced the week of 10/5.

The eight wineries of the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail include:
  • Amoré Vineyards & Winery, Nazareth
  • Big Creek Vineyard and Winery, Kresgeville
  • Blue Mountain Vineyards, New Tripoli
  • Clover Hill Vineyards & Winery, Breinigsville
  • Franklin Hills Vineyards, Bangor
  • Galen Glen Vineyard & Winery, Andreas
  • Pinnacle Ridge, Kutztown
  • Vynecrest Winery, Breinigsville
