Adult Trick or Treat Weekends Have Arrived at Chester County's Chaddsford Winery

by Drink Philly on Oct 16, 2015 in Wine

If your fall weekends could use a festive facelift, head to picturesque Chester County where a variety of unique wine tastings awaits at Chaddsford Winery. Oenophiles and casual wine sippers alike will find something to savor while exploring the winery’s beautiful facility and grounds.

Feeling festive and adventurous? Every weekend now through October 31 and November 1 is Adult Trick or Treat Weekend at the winery.

Let’s be honest, we all miss trick or treating now that we’re responsible adults, but Chaddsford has put together a perfect trick or treat walking tour that pairs wines with seasonal treats and will leave you feeling like a kid again. Pairing stations are set up around the winery and feature a variety of Chaddsford wines and local sweet and savory treats. Try Chaddsford’s Hard Cider paired with a Hard Cider Donut Hole, then sip on the Flyers Red paired with a Peanut Chew. There are five stations and seven pairings to discover. Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets ahead of time for the Trick or Treat Weekends for $20 each. Tickets include all the wine and snacks as well as a special Halloween-themed keepsake glass.
 
Stop in the newly renovated tasting room after trick or treating to sample a glass of your favorite red or try a sip of what may become your new favorite white. Looking to expand your palate and your wine knowledge? The Standard Tasting includes six to seven different wines ranging from dry reds to dry whites to sweet wines. Chaddsford’s friendly, knowledgeable staff will guide you through the tasting while offering notes as well as pairing suggestions and will happily answer any of your questions. If you opt for the Reserve Tasting, you’ll be treated to three wines from the Artisan Series which will leave you thirsty for more.
Chaddsford Winery also hosts plenty of special events. We were lucky enough to attend a grape stomping recently and can’t wait until we can sip on the fruits of our labor. Stompers were invited to jump into bins filled with about one and a half tons of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that were freshly picked in York County. Winemaker Jim Osborn informed us that the wine would be fermented right in the bins and then aged for at least a year in barrels before it would be ready for sipping.

To get an idea of what the finished product would taste like, we sampled the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon while we stomped. In addition to being a great workout, the grape stomping was a great hands-on, or feet-on, educational experience. Check out the winery’s Event Calendar for other special upcoming events or drop by anytime to enjoy a glass of an old, or new, favorite wine.
