October 14 & 15, 2023
Saturday 11 am – 5 pm & Sunday noon – 5 pm
The locally-owned and operated wineries of the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail will highlight the Chambourcin wine grape during this event. The Chambourcin is the only wine grape that is grown by all of our wineries. In the greater Lehigh Valley, there are more than 40 acres of Chambourcin which ferment into approximately 150,000 bottles of wine. Chambourcin is very versatile in the wine cellar and the wineries craft it into several styles of wine including Nouveau, Rosé, Semi- Sweet, Sweet, Dry Barrel Aged, Sparkling and Port.
Enjoy a complimentary tasting (one sample) of a Chambourcin wine at each winery. Each winery will also feature its own activities, specials, and promotions (see below).
