Celebrate the start of summer with Chaddsford wines

This season, fans of Pennsylvania’s acclaimed Chaddsford Winery can celebrate their
recent sweep of the Pennsylvania Winery Association’s 2011 Wine Competition in
three ways: a fun Memorial Day Picnic & Tasting Weekend at the
winery; festive Grillin’ and Chillin’ BBQ Tastings on their outdoor sun
deck; and Friday Nights
Under the Stars
, a live concert series at the Brandywine Polo Club.
The Memorial Day events and Friday Nights events will feature live music, and
all three are a chance to enjoy Chaddsford’s award-winning wines in a beautiful
outdoor setting.

“During the
spring and summer months, we love to kick up our heels and celebrate the
beautiful weather by sipping wine outdoors and enjoying live performances from
some of our favorite musicians,” said proprietor Lee Miller. “Whether guests
are joining us at our winery on the sun deck or at the Brandywine Polo Club,
we’re looking forward to some lovely spring and summer events.”

The Memorial Day Picnic & Tasting Weekend features
sipping and sunning on Saturday, May 28, Sunday, May 29 and Monday, May 30 from
12 noon until 6 p.m. daily. Guests are invited to bring a picnic or purchase
snacks at the winery from Francesco Catering. For $10 per person, attendees
will enjoy wine tastings, a souvenir logo glass to take home and live music
from two performers daily. A complete music performance schedule is
available online at www.chaddsford.com.

Then, in June, guests can learn more about pairing wine with
summery barbecue fare during Chaddsford’s Grillin’ and Chillin’ BBQ Tastings.
At 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. every Saturday beginning on June 4, an outdoor tent will
be the summery setting for wine pairings, guided by Chaddsford’s wine
educators, with barbecued meats and three different sauces as well as
vegetables and fruit. These tastings are $25 per person, and include six
dishes and six wines.

Finally, in June and July, Chaddsford will bring their wines
to the Brandywine Polo Club for their Friday Nights Under the Stars concert
series spotlighting local musicians and local wines. Tickets to the
concerts are available online; admission is $20 per person in advance and $25
per person at the gate. Guests will enjoy live polo matches, live music
and wine, sold by the glass and the bottle. Food will be available for
sale from Carolina Pit Stop Southern Bar-B-Que, or guests can pack their own
picnic. The kid- and pet-friendly concerts will take place every Friday;
Chaddsford’s wines will be featured on Friday, June 3 to kick off the series
and again on Friday, July 15.

These events and more throughout the summer are a showcase
for Chaddsford’s popular wines, which recently took home a total of seven
medals at the PWA 2011 Wine Competition, including Best White Wine, Double Gold
and the overall Keystone Cup Best in Show title for their 2009 Niagara, a sweet
and very satisfying wine from winemaker Eric Miller’s new “La Dolce Vino”
collection of consumer-friendly wines.

Later in the year, guests are invited to the winery for
their annual Fourth of July Big Bang BBQ Weekend and Sangria Sundays.
More details will be available throughout the season, and can be found online
at www.chaddsford.com.

Chaddsford Winery is Pennsylvania’s premiere winery and has
led the way for a burgeoning premium wine region to emerge from the hills of
the Brandywine Valley, both as a producer of world-class wines and as an
industry leader. Throughout the year, winemaker Eric Miller and
proprietor Lee Miller host tastings designed to give wine novices and
aficionados alike an up-close and personal look at the winemaking process and
to elevate their appreciation and enjoyment of wine.

Chaddsford wines are available directly from the winery,
located on Route 1 in Chadds Ford, and at their Bucks County Tasting Room in
Peddler’s Village, Lahaska. They can also be purchased online at www.chaddsford.com.
