Wine Trail Weekend Highlights

Our wineries sure do have a lot going on. Here's what events, specials and promotions you can take advantage of this weekend along the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail:

Love Hot Dog Company returns to Galen Glen Winery this Sunday
August 25 from noon - 5 p.m.

If you haven't been to the winery when Jason and the crew from Love Hot Dog Company have been there, you've been missing out. Plan to come for some of the most spectacular sausage and dogs you will ever get on a bun. There's everything from 100% beef for the traditionalists, but the adventuresome folks will want to try some of his wild-game treats too.

Plus two words - Bacon Jam. Have you tried it? It's a Galen Glen staff favorite. Jason has some awesome gourmet toppings for your dogs, including bacon jam.

Clover Hill August Owner's Selection
Save 10% on your purchase of 2012 Chambourcin. Now only $13.95. Receive an additional 10% discount when included in a case purchase.

Chambourcin is considered the grape of the Lehigh Valley. Clover Hill’s 2012 Chambourcin is a fantastic example of the rich flavors this grape can produce, such as blackberries and black raspberries. We have aged this wine in PA oak barrels for nearly a year adding flavors of toast and dark chocolate. The big flavors in this wine will be a perfect compliment to grilled steaks or grilled marinated portabellas.

We'd also like to say congratulations to Elaine, Bonnie and Maria of Franklin Hill Vineyards who won the following medals/honors:

International Women's Wine Competition:
Pomegranate - Double Gold and Best of Class
Evanswood and Fainting Goat - Silver medals

Amenti del Vino:
Sir Walter's Red - Bronze
