Gourmet Getaway

 
Gourmet Getaway

 

Vineyard's dreams come true - and now it wants to help others' dreams come true, too!

Buckingham Valley Vineyards and Winery is the realization of a pipe-dream of owner Jerry Forest. It also is one of the first wineries to sell wine directly to the public allowable by the 1968 PA Winery Act only if the wines were made solely from local grown fruit. Today Buckingham Valley is among the largest of Pennsylvania's wineries.

Buckingham Valley Vineyards unique history and bond with the community continues with their participation and support of the 2013 Gourmet Getaway. This annual event helps local women realize their dream of independence and self-sustaining support by offering scholarships to complete their education and re-enter the workforce. The Gourmet Getaway provides an evening of food and fun for hundreds in the community each year. Every dollar is used entirely to support these strong, courageous women in need of financial support.

The 20th Anniversary Gourmet Getaway - Cuisine for a Cause is planned for Thursday, March 21, from 5 to 8 pm at Spring Mill Manor, 171 Jacksonville Road, Ivyland, PA. Tickets are $45 or 10 for $400. Ticket information and additional details are available online.

Be sure to visit Buckingham Valley Vineyards at the Gourmet Getaway to sample some of the more than two dozen varieties of wine they offer. Their selections range from deep, oak-aged reds to light whites, as well as very dry to fairly sweet. You will be greeted people who believe in the laid back attitude set by Buckingham Valley's founders that there are no budgets, no quotas, virtually no staff (just family and friends), no distributors, no weddings, no guided tours (self-guided only), and no charge for visiting or tasting. Buckingham Valley Vineyards and Winery is located at 1521 Durham Road (Route 413) in Buckingham, PA. You can learn more of their wine production, selection, self-guided tours and wine-tasting opportunities at www.pawine.com
