Berks County Wine Trail Food & Wine Pairing Event: "A Taste of Berks!"
Is there anything more delicious than the rich, earthy smell in the air that signals' spring is just around the corner? Can't get enough of those springtime scents? We believe there are equally wonderous aromas to be had at the Berks County Wine Trail's annual A TASTE OF BERKS! event. April 16th & 17th 2011 (Noon to 5 PM both days) not only marks the anniversary of the wine trail, but a full sensory overload of cuisine and wines to celebrate the arrival of Spring! This year, the Berks County Wine Trail is seven years old. Each April, for its anniversary, the wineries relish spring's arrival with culinary pairings of local produce and cuisine paired with locally crafted wines. All the pairings capture the flavors and smells of what makes Berks County an amazing place to experience great food with great wine.
A TASTE OF BERKS! is a terrific weekend to get out and sample new foods, traditional recipes, outlandishly mouth-watering combinations of wines paired with regional foods... and of course, this is a lovely opportunity to taste the vast menu of wines produced right here in Eastern Pennsylvania's Berks County. The event itself is free and no reservations are required. Please note that some wineries may have modest tasting fees for samples of wine from their main tasting menu (fees are reimbursed with purchase of wine). If you are a group of 8 or more, it is suggested that you let the wineries know ahead of time that you'll be visiting on a particular date and time frame. This wine trail event tour is "self-guided" so you can create your own culinary adventure with the weekend's menu of festive samplings. Visit the "Events" page of www.berkscountywinetrail.com for the delicious menu of wine & food pairings to be featured.
