BARRELS ON THE BRANDYWINE
March 1 & 2, 8 & 9, 15 & 16, 22, 29 & 30 • 12 noon – 5 p.m.
The six wineries of the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail will be showing off their brand new 2007 vintage during the month of March. On each Saturday & Sunday, these local winegrowers and vintners will open their cellars and tasting rooms for barrel tastings, tours, music, art shows, food, and other special events. Visitors may purchase a Wine Trail Passport (for $25) from any of the Wine Trail members, which includes a tasting at each winery, a Wine Trail logo glass and a complimentary Wine Trail “pulltap” corkscrew.
Each year the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail wineries come up with special activities for Passport holders during Barrels on the Brandywine, ranging from music and art shows to BBQs and barrel tastings. Some of the highlights of the 2008 event include a “Gumbo Kitchen” at Twin Brook, Cheeseburgers in Paradise at “Paradocxville,” juicy grilled sandwiches by Fat Cat BBQ at Va La, Vineyard Tours at Folly Hill, “Lucky Leprechaun Sales” at Kreutz Creek, and Barrel Tastings in the cellar at Chaddsford Winery.
