The Main Line has a lot to offer this week. We've got wine, ways to unwind, and Easter eggs-travagance (not your typical egg hunt).
If There’s One Thing Vino, it’s Wine!
Paramour at the Wayne Hotel is offering a wine tasting that will get at the root, or more accurately, the soil behind a variety of wine and the characteristic of “minerality.”
On March 24, from 6 p.m.-7 p.m., the informative tasting, titled All About Soil, will also feature hors d’oeuvres from Paramour’s kitchen that were carefully paired with the wines featured at the tasting.
“From chalk in Chablis to gravel in Bordeaux,” you need only go as far as the Paramour in Wayneto explore French soil and the wine it produces.
Eggs-travagance at The Radnor Hotel
Kids, are you tired of the rough-and-tumble world of traditional Easter egg hunts—hopping from egg to egg for a pittance of candy? Oh, the stress! It’s time to kick back in the Terrace Room at the Radnor Hotel on March 26, from 1 p.m. until 3:00 p.m., for a tea party with the Easter Bunny himself. While enjoying snacks and drinks from the Radnor’s tea menu, the event boasts “interactive storytelling, a lively sing-along featuring the Bunny Hop, creative Easter crafts,” and, of course, a visit from the Easter Bunny.
The Radnor Hotel: March 26, from 1 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. Advanced Ticket Purchase Required.
