Wine-tasting on the Parkway

Cooking with wine might sound exotic, but many chefs find ways to work wine into their recipes to add harmony and flair to a dish.

May 11's free Sister Cities Park International Festival on the Ben Franklin Parkway has a fun lineup including dance, music, cooking demos, and foreign language lessons for kids and adults.

The adults get one better: A wine garden ($10 admission) where wines from local wineries can be sampled or purchased by the glass and bottle.

Participating in the wine garden will be:

Borderland Vineyard

Galer Estate Vineyard & Winery


Black Walnut Winery

It will run from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 11 at the park, 18th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway
