LONGSWAMP TWP., Pa. -

Wine enthusiasts had the chance to get their fill and enjoy some outdoor crafts Sunday in Berks County.

Bear Creek Mountain Resort in Longswamp Twp. held its first ever two-day wine and food festival.

The event featured 18 wineries from Pennsylvania offering samples, as well as food and an outdoor farmers market.

"There's so much passion for what they're doing," said event planner Tracy Houskneht.  "They're so excited to share. They want to pass on their knowledge. They want to pass on their information. They want you to taste, and they want you to enjoy." 

The event also featured seminars on the topics of cooking with wine, and pairing wine with different foods.
