I am located in North Jersey.

All of my wines are from grapes. I never really got into kits.

Wine-o,

I hope we both do well.


Who are you delivering to? The Beckers?

Also, are you planning to attend the event at Unionville Winery on the 21st?

John,
I brought my wine to Dan Kline today at his business. I was going to take it to the Beckers but Dan was closer from where I was.

As far as going to the Winery it all depends how busy we are at work. I'd like to come with my wife but one of us needs to be at the nursery until 5 :m
Maybe I'll come by myself.

I passed through Chester this afternoon, 2 of my favorite places there are The Publick House and Redwoods, mmm.

Best of luck to you as well, I hope there's plenty of gold medals for us both!!

I am sure that there are plenty of golds to be had. Just hope a few of them end up around my neck.

Yup, Public House and Redwoods are great, but there is an Italian joint named Benito's. This is just off of main street and is a BYOB place. This works out great since finding a bottle of wine (for me) is no problem. I even get the waiters to sample it. Since it is a BYOB, the food is rather upscale.

If you make it to the competition, let me know. Perhaps we can meet up and swap "war stories".

John,
Thanks for the info on Benito's,we'll have to check it out.

I'll let you know by the end of the week if I can make it to the winery. If not have yourself a blast and best of luck (doubt you will need it though!).

Vineland bbq and wine competition

My club have been in this competition for the last few years. Usually we take about 60% of the medals.

Saturday, September 25, 2010
BBQ-n-Chili-n-Cheese Steak Cook Off
4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
(Rain Date: September 26, 2010)

Now they do not have the entry forms out yet. When they do I will post. Now the catch.. you must hand deliver I believe. Usually they want one bottle.

Tom,

Sounds impressive. Are you going to be at the event? Do you make most of the wine with grapes or from kits?

Look forward to meeting you. My plan is to get there around 1pm and picnic.
see you there.

John,
I have no idea what the medals look like, and from what I read they are going to mail us the medals with the judges notes after the event. Maybe they don't order the medals until they know how many they need!

I also saw that they had 83 wines entered. I have 12 and you have 10 so 1/4of the entries are ours!!

I am planning to be there around 2:30 for the tour. It will be interesting to see what kind of turnout they get.

I and or other members of my wine club I'm sure will be there. Ck back when closer and maybe we can hook up.
Alot of us do wine from pure juice and some (modified), fruit and combos of almost everything. Only a few do kits. When they do its a LE of some type.

I am surprised it is so small. I went to Corrado's Competition this year and MAN! what a crowd. They need to advertise more.
