After a year long hiccup in our supply system, we are back on track and working to bring you the level and frequency of programming that has been our standard. We were hopeful of having an importer/winemaker in either May or this month, but have endured scheduling issues. So, we are going to take this opportunity to present a selection of wines from our national conference held one year ago in Washington, D.C. The programs were diverse and the wines interesting, and our sampling here very representative of the diversity of wines served on the whole. Yours truly will be presenting. Even if you attended the conference, I think you will agree that the wines are worth revisiting. The wines included are:
Barth Riesling Brut NV (sekt) (Rheingau)
2014 Meyer-Nakel Spatburgunder (Ahr)
2014 Hans Wirsching Iphofer-Julius Echterberg Riesling GG (Franken)
2013 Von Winning Deidesheimer Paradiesgarten Riesling Trocken (Pfalz)
2015 Ratzenberger Bacharacher Riesling feinherb (Mittlerhein)
2013 von Kesselstatt Josephshofer Riesling Kabinett (Mosel)
2012 Willi Schaefer Graacher Dombprobst Riesling Spatlese (Mosel)
2013 Kruger Rumpf Scheurebe Spatlese (Nahe)
The tasting will be held at the award winning Caffe Aldo Lamberti in Cherry Hill, NJ. Recently honored by the Wine Spectator for their wine selection, our Chapter has enjoyed the wonderful service and outstanding food at this location for the past several years. For this event, a cold anti pasta and hot appetizers served family style will be included with the tasting. By popular request, the hot appetizers will feature some new items. Please plan to join us for this very special event.

SAVE THE DATE: Our annual dinner at the home of Tony Lawrence will be held on Wednesday, August 8th. Details to follow.
From Philadelphia and points West, take the Ben Franklin Bridge, and exit from one of the two left lanes. Follow signs to
Routes 30 – 130; stay in one of the two left lanes. Two miles East of the Bridge, the highway divides at the top of a ramp. Bear left, towards Routes 38& 70. At the bottom of the ramp, move over one (or two) lanes to your right, to stay on Route 70 East. Go straight for three miles; 1/4 mile before you come to the restaurant, you will see a sign for Grove Street. Lamberti’s is on your right on Route 70 at the Grove Street turn. (Traffic is normally light on 70 East from the Bridge to Grove St., and the normal ride is 7 minutes.)
From NJ or points South, take Route 295 North to Route 561, Haddonfield/Gibbsboro, and turn left towards Haddonfield.
Follow 561 until it ends, at Kress Liquors. The road will fork to your left; stay in the right lane and bear left onto Potter Street.
Follow Potter to the light at Kings Highway, then jog across onto Grove Street. Stay on Grove Street through Haddonfield, and across the bridge over Cooper River. As you are approaching the intersection of Grove Street and Route 70, right before 70 you will see a sign on your left for Commerce Bank. Turn left into the bank parking lot, and continue straight past the bank into the back parking lot at Lamberti’s.
