Thinking back on my past Sunday, I can't believe Don and I did so much in one day. For starters, I slept late (yay!). Then we decided to hit a few of the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail vineyards; it was Chambourcin Weekend celebrating the grape that grows best in Lehigh Valley.
Once we got to Vynecrest I found out that owners John and Jan Landis were on a well-deserved vacation. But Sam Landis, in spite of being busy, took time to chat with us. We are definitely serving Vynecrest's Spiced Winter Red with dessert for our annual Christmas Eve dinner.
Next we visited Clover Hill. Kari is the perfect hostess and another fine example of the second generation of winemakers building on their parent's hard work. While we were there, we actually started our Christmas shopping.
We concluded our mini wine trail by visiting Amore. The owner, Gregg, is living proof that if there's a will, there's a way; despite having a fire in their tasting room a few days before, they were up and running with temporary walls set up until the repairs are completed. I was happy to take a few bottles out of their way!
We headed home and took the bikes out for a ride. Afterward, we went to Cafe del Mar for dinner; the food is always excellent there and Kurt, tending bar, keeps everyone entertained.
By 8pm we were back home in time to watch the Phillies beat the Dodgers. A perfect end to a perfect day.
Did you have that much fun on Sunday?
