Black Walnut Winery: From The Cask

December 16, 2014 1:47 pm

Located in a 200 year old barn in Chester County, the Black Walnut Winery is devoted to expanding the viticulture of the area in any way they can. Founded in 2001 by three friends trying to bring wine culture to the small town of Sadsburyville, they’ve grown remarkably in the intervening decade to become one of the most popular wineries in the area.

Black Walnut's tasting room in Phoenixville is a great place to sample the different varietals they produce in an elegant, casual atmosphere. Prices are exceptionally fair for tastings, with attendees raving about the high quality of their Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc wines. The tasting room also hosts live musical performances on Saturday nights. Black Walnut also features a variety of special events and tastings throughout the year.

Want to Travel Light? Don’t Pack These Items!

December 9, 2014 3:03 pm

You think that you packed your suitcase pretty efficiently—until the scale at the airport tells you otherwise and you’re met with a huge baggage fee. We’ve all been there before, but there are a few things that you can do about it. Eliminate these three items from your list of things to pack, and you’ll likely be amazed at how much lighter your suitcase is.

  1. Toiletries. They may be essentials, but until you actually arrive at your destination, toiletries are just taking up space in your suitcase. Instead of filling your bags with heavy shampoo bottles or, even worse, having your toiletries taken away by airport security, opt to buy the same products in travel-size versions once you arrive.
  2. Snacks. This one is very common with international travelers. If you’re a creature of habit who prefers to eat the same foods every day, it may be tempting to bring your favorite snacks with you on vacation. Even a box of cereal can take up quite a bit of space, however, so opt to instead immerse yourself by trying the local cuisine.
  3. Books. Many people like to relax with a good book on the beach or in the hotel room, but it’s very easy to over pack reading material and weigh your suitcase down. Invest in an e-reader instead, or bring just one book and swap with a friend once you finish it.
