Reading Red: A Wine Tasting & History Program
Winemaking in Reading goes back almost to the earliest days of European settlement in the area, beginning in the early 1800s. These wines, first known as "Reading Red," and later associated with the slopes of our nearby mountains, were highly regarded at the time. The Philadelphia Times once wrote, for example, that "some of the best native wine in this country is made from grapes grown right on the side of Mount Penn, within fifty miles of Philadelphia."

To celebrate the launch of his book, Lost Mount Penn: Wineries, Railroads and Resorts of Reading, author Mike Madaio will be joining us for a special event and wine tasting. After sharing some of the fascinating history of wine in our area--including the colorful characters that made it, and the events that led to its downfall--Mike will lead us through a tasting of high-quality local wines, all grown and made within 50 miles of Reading. You don't want to miss this one of a kind Berks history program!

Mike Madaio's new book, Lost Mount Penn: Wineries, Railroads and Resorts of Reading, will be available for purchase and signing during this event.

The wine tasting will include "a sampling of some of the best dry vinefra (European grape) wines made within 50 miles of the Berks History Center," says Wine & Food writer, Mike Madaio, "including one semi-sweet red that includes native grapes and tastes somewhat close the common wine of that era."

Tickets: $35/person - includes history program, wine tasting, refreshments and a $10 gift voucher that can be used to purchase Mike Madaio's new book, "Lost Mount Penn" or the BHC Museum Store.
