Whoo Hoo for Wine Fest!
One fall festival I make sure to go to every years is the North East Wine Festival in North East, Pennsylvania. We always go with another couple, and this year our son and daughter and their girlfriend/husband came too. After a weather forecast of rain and cold temperatures, it ended up being a beautiful day.
The wine tasting was held in the tent in the background. Eight wineries were on hand, showing off their most popular wines.
WE started out with $20 worth of tokens. A $1 token gave us a 1oz taste. I don't know how many more tokens we went through, but it was fun to try a 1 oz taste of some wines we've never had before. And a few of us might have surrendered several tokens for a glass of a wine we loved.
After we had a good wine buzz, and a list of wines we wanted to buy to take home, we headed over to the food vendors. Everyone was starving and came back to our table with a variety of foods from chili cheese dogs to gyros to blooming onions to chicken fingers.
Behind all the picnic tables you can see a pavilion where live bands played all day long. We even might have been heard singing along with a few oldies. And the rest of the park was filled with craft booths. We didn't buy anything at the craft booths, but did come home with a few bottles of our favorite wines. And some more good memories of a good day out with family and friends.
