MASSC Brandywine Valley Winery Tour - March 22nd

Earlier this month, when we were making plans for the DE Club March meeting, sue'ssky proposed the following:

These are the same wineries MASSC visited in the summer of 07. Good times!
So is anyone interested in getting out for an afternoon of wine tasting this Saturday, March 22nd?

There will be food available for lunch at a few of the wineries, all from very good vendors. Also, pairings will be accompanied with the wine tastings also. I'll keep you posted tonight. Thanks.

Taking a head count for those attending The MASSC Barrells on the Brandywine wine tour.
so far we have:
PaceCar
Dengel
Sue'ssky & Al
Spag
07Bluestone?

I will purchase the passports in advance. They also can be bought at each winery, for those who are undecided at the last minute.

Meet time will be 12:00 noon at the Chadds Ford Winery, 632 Baltimore Pike, Chadds Ford, PA 19317. We will then do a short 20 minute run to Folly Hill Vineyards , 700 Folly Hill Road, Kennett Square, P A 19348 then maybe lunch then meander our way to rest of the wineries. More info to follow.

I'm not sure if we have an Achilles tendon repair this Saturday or not. Have to wait until Friday afternoon so find out if we are going to do it on Sat or Sunday. If I have the time I'd be willing to go. I have the battery tender hooked up to the GXP so I know my car will start. Put me down for a maybe.

Just got the word from my boss that he is giving me the weekend off (he will do the Achilles repair by himself) so I'm a go for this weekend, Provided it doesn't snow. Just need the where and when on meeting place and time.

Well, I did an hour by hour break out over on the sky forum, but it looks like by 1:00pm, the chance of precipitation drops to 20%. So I don't think there is a big worry that we will be driving during any serious snowfall or anything. As long as we don't think they'll be any snow covering the roads, I would be willing to give it a try.

We'll see everyone at noon. Let's meet at the side parking lot to the right, in front of the winery which is behind the antique mall. This is a paved lot. Hopefully they will not have it roped off as they did in the summer.

Can't wait to meet up with everyone today! Let's have some fun
