Wine lovers prepare for tomorrow – it’s your day! February 18th is National Drink Wine Day. Grab your favorite bottle, pour a glass, and toast one of the world’s oldest natural drinks. Cheers!by admin
Valentine’s Day celebrates love! What a wonderful concept in a world where so many disagreements cause so much conflict. As early as the Middle Ages, lovers have been taking this day to honor their love. Through the years expressions of love have changed, from letters and cards to flowers and candy, a night out or a quiet celebration at home.
Wineries are offering special events such as a Chocolate Lovers Date Night at Brianza Gardens and Winery or the Valentine’s Murder Mystery Dinner at Prodigy Vineyards and Winery. Check the websites of your favorite local wineries for their events.
Wine lovers looking for a special Valentine’s wine to share with their love have many choices from Champagne, a chocolate flavored wine for sweet wine lovers, a dry wine in a chocolate glass, or a dry red wine paired with dark chocolate. Choose a wine you love to celebrate your love and enjoy the day!
Here’s a copy of the Press Release for the event. Thanks to Annette Mathy, Event Coordinator.
