Clover Hill toasts the end of harvest with Concord wine for October

Beautiful  fall colors are blanketing the rolling hills, the air has a fresh chill to it, and the wine is being served warm. Welcome back to our fall tradition of serving the Spiced Apple and Holiday wines warm as you sip a glass with friends or family.

The Spiced Apple is a deliciously sweet wine made from local apples and spiced with cinnamon and cloves often described as ‘liquid apple pie." The Holiday is a blend of grapes spiced with cinnamon, cloves and a touch of citrus. Pull the cork, place the entire bottle in a slow cooker, warm on low heat, and serve a fun fall tradition.

The 2013 grape harvest is now complete. The netting you may have noticed on our vineyards caused quite a few comments. It was used to help keep the birds (mainly Starlings) away from our precious fruit. Those few rows of Vidal Blanc that were skipped... well, keep your eyes open for a Clover Hill Ice Wine next year!

Cheers to the Chambourcin grape! The Chambourcin grape is the only grape all eight wineries on the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail grow, but it is produced in many different styles. So take this weekend to travel the trail and sample various styles of wine made from the Chambourcin grape. Each winery will celebrate this special grape in various ways.

Clover Hill will hold cooking demonstrations paired with our 2012 Chambourcin and our Turtle Rock Red (also made from 100% Chambourcin grapes). Chef Mark from the American Café, 7450 Tilghman Street, Allentown, will be on-site preparing Chambourcin-marinated London broil with a black raspberry Chambourcin reduction and ratatouille made with Turtle Rock Red. Our cooking demonstrations will take place at 1, 2, 3 and 4 pm both days.

Visit to find out what each winery has in store for the Chambourcin grape celebration.
