Vino in the Valley
March 9-10, 16-17, 23-24 and 30-31
A passport is your journey through the wineries on the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail where you will explore tasty food and wine pairings along the way. The annual event introduces wine lovers to local wineries and their wines by encouraging them to explore all eight wineries that belong to the Wine Trail.
- Wine lovers purchase a passport for $35, either at one of the wine trail’s eight member wineries, or online via EventBrite.com (credit card only). Passport program participants must be age 21 or older. During the four event weekends in March (Saturdays and Sundays), participants visit the member wineries to enjoy a tasting-sized food and wine pairing and have their passport stamped in the corresponding winery box. Passport holders also receive a complimentary wine tasting at each winery.
- Once stamps are obtained from all wineries, they fill out their contact information on the bottom front side of the passport, before tearing it off and turning it in at the last winery they visit in order to be entered into the Grand Prize Drawing.
Visit the wine trail’s website to review group guidelines, tips for traveling the trail, passport program rules, and other event details. Each winery sets its own house rules, policies, and procedures. Event hours are Saturdays from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Sundays from noon – 5 p.m.
