2010 Great Pennsylvania Wine Toast (Black Walnut Winery)

This started as a typical summer Saturday morning… What are we going to do…

I happen to be on my Facebook wall, when I noticed that the “2010 Great Pennsylvania Wine Toast” was being held today!

So I started to plot out the various Chester County wineries, and decided on trying the Black Walnut Winery in Sadsburyville.

I called an old friend, Ben, to see what he was doing, and he agreed that it would be fun to join us.

Madison, Logan and I got to Black Walnut Winery around 3pm, checked in, got some snacks and drinks and easily found a table near the front of the stage with some live music.

Don’t let this “thumbnail” image deceive.

The original image is 8525 x 2849 pixels (or approximately 118 inches by 39 inches), and used three different images “stitched” together in a panorama!

Thanks to all the Folks at Black Walnut for the GREAT time!

Black Walnut Winery – World Record?

I had never been to Black Walnut Winery before, but after reading about the attempt on the Guinness Book of World Record online, I thought it might be kind of fun to check out.

It was a sunny day and a perfect temperature of this outdoor event, and as you can see, there was a good crowd early on, and it grew during the afternoon!
