252 years ago Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon teamed up to lay out the Mason-Dixon Line. 31 miles west of Philadelphia stands the Harlan House (shown below) where, in 1763, Mason and Dixon began measuring due south to set the new line for the border with Maryland. They determined latitude and longitude from the stars, progressing from PA to Delaware and then to Maryland to run the line.
Come celebrate these famous Star Gazers with a Rendezvous with Mason & Dixon at Stargazers Vineyard August 8. First course to be served at 7 pm. This year we are pleased to have with us a noted authority and lecturer on those famous men, Todd Babcock, who will give us details of their feat and of their activities in this area of Chester County. See http://www.surveyorshistoricalsociety.com/Rend2013.php
Mr. Babcock is a member of the Pennsylvania Society of Land Surveyors and serves as the chairman of the Monument Preservation Committee. He is a founding member of the Mason and Dixon Line Preservation Partnership.

Solar Celebration Chardonnay 2013 - 100% sun, 0% oak
Arneis 2013 - an ancient variety grown in the Piemonte, home of Barolo. Delicate aromas and flavors of pears, with a hint of almonds, and a lingering finish. This will be paired with an anise caramel topped with dark chocolate blended with almond butter and sliced almonds which have been soaked in Kirch (cherry liqueur) before being roasted.
Riesling 2013 - this medium sweet wine, with the aroma of apricot, elderflower and honeysuckle, combines richness with a lingering finish. This wine is the perfect complement to an orange caramel topped with dark chocolate blended with hazelnut butter, orange zest and hazelnuts which have been soaked in Cointreau (orange liqueur) before being roasted
Vidal - From 34 year old vines in Lancaster County. Luscious and intense, its sweetness is derived from the sugar in the grapes at harvest. To balance the sweetness in this wine we have paired it with the bold flavor of an espresso caramel topped with dark chocolate blended with hazelnut butter and honeycomb and drizzled with white chocolate.
Sparkling Rosé - 100% Pinot Noir. Color obtained by brief skin contact. Finished Natural.

Contrary to every surmise and expectation, Harvey's Bridge has been reopened!
If you are coming from Unionville, you may consider the route over Harvey's Bridge as an alternative to following 162 to Stargazers Road.
Harvey's Bridge has been closed for resurfacing. Consequently, once again, the only access to Wheatland Drive and Stargazers Vineyard is down Youngs from Stargazers Road to Laurel Rd. You will see a "Road Closed Ahead" sign as you turn right onto Laurel, but fear not, the road is open to Wheatland Drive. You will also see "Laurel Road Detour" signs. I have no idea what PENNDOT is trying to indicate by those signs. Please ignore them.
To all you GPS aficionados out there: Do not under any circumstances attempt to come via Harveys Bridge Road.
