The Lehigh Valley Wine Trail celebrates its biggest event of the year Saturday and Sunday with its annual Harvest Weekend.

Eight wineries in Lehigh and Northampton counties will be participating in the event, which focuses on the Lehigh Valley American Viticultural Area that generates more than $50 million per year in sales and agri-tourism dollars for the region.

Kari Skrip, co-owner of Clover Hill Vineyards and Winery in Breinigsville, said in addition to giving the public a chance to get a sneak peek at the grapes that will be creating next year’s wine, it’s also a chance to highlight other locally grown produce and locally manufactured products.

Clover Hill Vineyards & Winery will have samples of pretzels from Unique Pretzel Bakery Inc., of Reading.

Blue Mountain Vineyards, New Tripoli will have a representative from Crystal Spring Farm who will offer samples and sales of its ice cream. Allentown restaurateur Louie Belletieri will also be cooking with his line of Louie’s Sauces on Sunday.

At Galen Glen Vineyard & Winery in Andreas, the owner of Smoky Mutts Barbeque will be selling southern style barbecue.

And Vynecrest Winery, Breinigsville, will partner with Pappy’s Orchard of Coopersburg, a fellow Pennsylvania Preferred vendor from Macungie Farmers Market, and pair Gala apples with a sugar ’n spice caramel apple dip mix, which is made and sold at the winery.
