Since Valentine's Day falls in the middle of the week this year, spend this coming weekend, February 11 & 12, with your sweetheart on the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail. Here's a list of specials, events and gift ideas from our wineries.
Our Rapport is awesome with any chocolate or chocolate desert - the bolder the better. Our Vidal Blanc desert wine is great with lighter deserts. And our pink sparkling wine Celebration is perfect for any holiday. If you are adventuresome, our Peach Mist is awesome for making mimosas.
Big Creek Vineyards
Saint Valentine’s Day is always a special day at Big Creek Vineyard and Winery. In celebration we are going to release a very limited bottling of our 2011 Muscat. Sweet as Aphrodite but as serious as Bacchus: aromas of honey, melon, ripe peach, orange and pears dance above the glass. When sipped, curiously and almost without exception, lips curl into a mischievous smile and the eyes twinkle. The 2010 vintage was extremely well received and sold out quickly. The current vintage is a little higher in alcohol, lower in residual sugar and fuller bodied. An Old World style dessert wine that all wine drinkers will delight in tasting.
Blue Mountain Vineyards
Blue Mountain is recommending Victoria’s Passion for a wine drinker who likes something sweet. Our newly released White Merlot, made with Merlot grapes grown in our Leaser vineyard is great for someone looking for something a little dryer. Over the weekend of February 11 & 12 we will have a chocolate fountain that guests can dip snacks in to pair with the Victoria’s Passion and White Merlot. On Sunday the Wow Brothers will be performing from 2 - 5 p.m. ($5 admission).
Clover Hill Winery
Which Clover Hill wines show the ‘look of LOVE’? Sparkling Pinot Noir is back in stock and there is no other wine that is more loving. From its pale pink color, to the fruity, light strawberry flavors it is a simple and elegant wine to serve with white chocolate dipped strawberries. Turtle Rock Red is a favorite of ours to make a romantic pairing with dark chocolates.
Franklin Hill Vineyards
Get "Kissed" this Valentine's Day Weekend at our winery! Visit our winery for complimentary wine tastings featuring chocolate tastings from our friends at Chocolates on Broadway. Complimentary appetizers include Meatballs served with Rothschild Chipotle Sauce, Tomato Pie and, customer favorite, Rothschild Habanero Dip. While you're here, don't forget to get "Kissed." Enjoy 10% off a single bottle of our Kiss - Medium Dry Rose Wine. Wine & Chocolate available for purchase
Galen Glen Winery
Join us February 11 & 12 and again on February 18 & 19 at the winery for our annual St. Valentine's Day Celebration. Celebrate romance with our decadent pairing of Barrel 29 and Sweet Street's Fabulous Chocolate Chunk Brownie. We'll also offer "Sarah’s Favorite Chocolate Lover's Indulgence" to purchase with a Glass of Barrel 29. Barrel 29 is “Reminiscent of the old world, a velvety cask aged Chambourcin dessert wine. The perfect ending to every evening, especially with chocolate.”
For Valentine’s Day, we will be featuring Cherry DiVyne wine (750ml bottle $13.99) with Chocolates from Sweet Indulgence by Christina from Bethlehem, PA. We will feature chocolates in wine glasses ($14.95), Cherry DiVyne with chocolate ($19.95), as well as any of our wines from our award-winning list. On Saturday, February 11, Jake Kaligis will be playing and singing in the Vyneskeller Wine Bar from 1:30 - 4:30 p.m. (no admission charge, open to the public)
