For Valentine’s Day, it is Amore wine and chocolate. Our Blackberry Bliss and dark chocolate is the perfect combo for a Valentine surprise. If you like it on the lighter side, try Strawberry Seduction with white chocolate. If chocolate is not your thing, a bottle of Rapport (sweet and potent) and the hot tub are a perfect paring. For those who just want to celebrate, a bottle of Celebration (sparkling wine) will make for the perfect cork-popping celebration.
Big Creek has three great choices, depending on your particular tastes. For a sweeter wine we have the ever popular Apple Raspberry, great with chocolate-covered cherries. For the dry wine crowd we have just released our 2012 Frontenac, a deeply colored, full bodied red that can tame the richest chocolate around. Our Vin di Pasqualina is a Rose' that sits gracefully between dry and sweet, great aroma, great taste, lighter body.
Wine lovers will enjoy a range of flavors this Valentine’s Day at Blue Mountain Vineyards. With its raspberry undertones, our Victoria’s Passion brings out the best in any chocolate dessert. For something drier you can try the award winning Merlot grown at our Leaser Vineyard. Sample these and other wines February 16 and 17 along with a delicious chocolate fondue.

Galen Glen toasts cupid February 9 and; 10 and February 16 and 17 for our annual St. Valentine's Affair. Celebrate love with our decadent pairing of Barrel 29 and Sarah’s favorite Chocolate Lover's Indulgence drizzled with a Strawberry Barrel 29 Reduction. Desiring a little more debauchery? We’ll offer our pairing to purchase. Barrel Twenty-Nine is reminiscent of the old world, a velvety cask aged Chambourcin dessert wine. The perfect ending to every evening, especially with chocolate.
What could be more appropriate for a holiday of love than our Sweet Seduction paired with chocolate? Or how about a glass of our Blanc de Blanc sparkling wine?
