Lehigh Valley ahead of curve on trail bags

A couple of shots taken Sunday of Pinnacle Ridge Winery, located no more than a couple minute's drive off Route 78, near Kutztown, Pa.

Before I bag it for the night, wanted to mention that we left Pinnacle Ridge on Sunday night with a couple bottles of wine, one of which was tucked into a Lehigh Valley Wine Trail bag that had the Web site on one side and all the pertinent contact information about the nine members on the other. Just thought this was a great idea and a good way to spread the word about the trail.

Asked by e-mail how long the trail has been using the bags, owner/winermaker Brad Knapp replied: "The LVWT has been doing the wine trail bag for at least 3-4 years now. Some of the wineries on the trail have their own bag, but about 1/2 of us use the wine trail bag. I like the bag since it looks a little nicer than your typical brown bag."

Might be worth an idea for other wine trails to copy.

Congrats to Brad at Pinnacle Ridge for winning the 2009 Governor's Cup last weekend at the PA Farm Show for his 2007 Chambourcin.

His sparkling wines are my personal favorite. I often prefer them to a glass of Champagne!
