Taste the Passion
Love is in the air at the “Taste the Passion” during the weekend of February 8 & 9, 2014. It’s a celebration of wine, chocolate and love! Chart your own course, enjoying food and wine pairings and some optional winter and Valentine-themed activities at the wineries.
The fabulous annual weekend starts on Saturday as you head to your first winery to collect your souvenir glass. Then spend the weekend enjoying special pours and sweet or savory food pairings at our wineries between the hours of 11:00 am and 5:00 pm on Saturday and 12:00 pm and 5:00 pm on Sunday.
Tickets are $35 per person, and quantities are limited. Tickets include a souvenir wine glass and a special wine pour paired with a small plate of sweet or savory fare at each winery. You may also add a Designated Driver ticket for $20, which includes food.
