Do you have your Valentine’s Day gift for your sweetie?
Valentine’s Day gifts are traditionally chocolates and dinner dates but why not surprise your special someone with a local wine and Chocolate Wine Trail tickets!
Pairing wine and chocolate inspired foods is one of the things Hermann Wine Trail wineries do really well. Probably because we have been hosting the popular Chocolate Wine Trail for over 10 years. Our wineries have years of experience creating traditional and non-traditional recipes using chocolate as an ingredient.
Here’s some of the past recipes served at the Chocolate Wine Trail with wine pairing suggestions:
