Wine with the brews in the park! The Kutztown Rotary Club is excited to announce the 6th annual Taste of Kutztown taking place on Saturday, June 6th, 2015 from 12-5pm. Imagine yourself strolling the grass lined pathways- visiting vendors who offer small-batch, handmade products created by passionate craftspeople. Tasting wine and beer under the canopy of 100-year-old maple trees dappled with streams of golden sunrays.
Kutztown, known as the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch culture and farmland is home to the Kutztown Folk Festival. The Taste of Kutztown wine festival now takes its place alongside the Folk Festival, the Lyons Fiddle Festival and the Bowers Chili Pepper Festival making northern Berks County a regional hotspot.
The region is known for its fertile, shale-rich soil creating a wonderful terroir for an expanding PA viticulture industry. Many PA wineries are winning awards in regional and national competitions. Lehigh Valley wines have been showcased in the Philly.com article, “A luscious tour of Lehigh Valley wine”.
The Kutztown Rotary Club sponsors the Taste of Kutztown fundraiser. 2014 proceeds were proudly donated to www.ihartharvest.org, which provided over 200,000 lbs of potatoes through the Greater Berks Food Bank to more then 8,000 local households. Kutztown Rotary has been named as the largest donor to the 2014 international Rotary “Dream Team” dam building project in India. The dam building project supports the India agriculture efforts to supply three times the amount of water for food production for that immediate area.
