WE DID IT. We had our first successful wine camp. What a treat it was. Great campers, great vendors and that weather was absolutely wonderful. The camp theme followed throughoutt the event with a final gala evening of fine food, great wine and of course awards.
The event began on Sunday evening with a spectacular wine and chocolate pairing. Who'd of thought? The two mix well together. Try the real stuff with a great wine. You will for sure be surprised. Then day one was filled with four different wineries. Tastings at each one with an explanation of a different aspect of wine. "yes it was not only for drinking; we learned a lot as well). Dinner in the evening topped the day off back for more treats at the Chocolate Cafe in Downtown Lititz. The Pot D creme at the end of the evening was really a treat.
The next day was filled with more of the same, but this time a trip to Carlinos in downtown West Chester to sample the cheese was put into the middle of it all. I finally had some cheese from the Alto Adige Region of Italy. This was great needless to say.
Dinner that evening was at Spence Cafe in downtown West Chester. Once again they out did themselves.
I will pick apart over the next couple of days certain elements of the camp. Needless to say, I am back to write. Looking forward to filling you all in on this and other finds from over the summer. So many restaurants, so little time.
