With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, people are trying to decide what wine would be best to help them celebrate. Many wine drinkers are looking for a wine that goes with chocolate so they can combine those two special tastes with their loved one. My recommendation would be to choose one of Kentucky’s dry reds. Chrisman Mill’s Norton, MillaNova’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Prodigy’s Lemburger, Wight-Meyer’s Norton, or Smith-Berry’s Barbera would be at the top of my list. Those who prefer a sweet wine might want to try a Kentucky blackberry or strawberry wine to pair with those chocolate desserts.
Many of the wineries are hosting special Valentine’s Day events. Chrisman Mill is hosting a brunch on the 11th, with a chocolate flavor to all the dishes. Prodigy is serving a cheese tray and a special toast of a dessert wine in a chocolate cup on Valentine’s Day. Talon is offering a special tasting of their Cabernet Sauvignon or their decadent Chocolate Strawberry Wine on the weekend. At Jean Farris, enjoy a special Valentine’s Dinner menu that will be available Friday night, February 10th, through Valentines day, Tuesday, February 14th. Also, Jean Farris will be open for dinner service on Monday, February 13th for this romantic holiday weekend event. Elk Creek Winery is hosting a special wine dinner on the 10th and the 11th. Your local winery is probably hosting an event as well. Be sure to check their websites.
However you choose to celebrate with your special other, enjoy the day. Valentine’s Day is a great day for love and for wine lovers.by admin
