Thanksgiving is less than three weeks away and most of us are thinking about family gatherings, traveling, cooking, eating – and of course pairing our favorite holiday foods with delicious wines.
And – what could be better than exploring our beautiful Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and talking about the 200-plus wineries covering all state regions?
On “Let’s Talk Travel with AAA”, Saturday morning, Nov. 9th from 11am-12pm on WHP580, we will feature “Pennsylvania’s Wines and Wineries” with Jennifer Eckinger, Executive Director of the PA Winery Association ; Trish Brown, General Manager of Paradocx Vineyards & Winery ; and Carley Mack, Co-owner & Marketing Director of Penns Woods Winery. (Both featured wineries are located in the picturesque Brandywine Valley.) www.Paradocx.com and www.PennsWoodsWinery.com .
Winemaking in Pennsylvania began in 1683 when William Penn planted the first vineyard in Philadelphia and today, Pennsylvania boasts more than 270 wineries over 14,000 acres of some of the most fertile grape-growing land on the East Coast.
Show highlights will include – what are the most popular PA wines ; where can we sample and purchase PA wines ; favorite wines to serve during the holidays and pair with special & traditional holiday foods ; what is it like to work in a family winery – and so much more.
