Vynecrest Winery will pair chili and wine on Saturday, February 1, the day before the Super Bowl.
A popular annual event, this year they will feature Mr. Bill’s Poultry Market's chili from the Allentown Fairgrounds Farmers Market paired with their recent PA Farm Show award-winning wines.
Mr. Bill’s turkey chili (red sauce) is made with locally grown, antibiotic-free, skinless turkey from Koch’s Turkey farm, a Tamaqua premium turkey grower. The recipe has gone through many improvements over the years and is a great blend of tomatoes, beans, lean turkey and spices. It will be paired with the winery's gold medal Chambourcin red wine.
New to Mr. Bill’s is their white chicken chili. A blend of Bell & Evans chicken breast meat and ground chicken are the base for this chili. Mr. Bill's does not use a cream-based sauce, but instead purees the white beans and adds sautéed onions, garlic, celery and a unique spice blend as well as whole white beans. This slightly spicy chili lends nicely to a pairing with their bronze medal-winning Traminette, a white Gewurztraminer hybrid with a flowery bouquet and seductive, spicy finish.
Customers will have a chance to sample both of these chilis and wine pairings. The chilis will also be available for purchase by the bowl to eat in the Vyneskeller Wine Bar or for take out.
