Red Wine & Chocolate 2019

February 16, 17, 18 & 23, 24


This year’s Red Wine & Chocolate event will be more luscious than ever.  We will feature two new red wines:

Petite Sirah, 2015                                                    
This is our first vintage of Petite Sirah (and yes, that’s how it’s spelled).  This is a full-bodied, well-balanced wine tasting of juicy plum and raspberry flavors.  It has a bright acidity and  delicate flavors with a nice oak touch on the finish.  Lonesome Spring Vineyard

Petit Verdot, 2015                                                             
Another rare 100% varietal. The mouthfeel is plush, and the taste is distinctive for the espresso, bitter chocolate overtones to its plump core of black currant and blueberry flavors. The finish lingers with a slight hint of sage. Deep, rich, bluish purple color. This wine feels opulent on the palate. Aromas of plum, green peppercorn and raspberry give way to spice, plum, and cocoa with a long lingering finish.  Heart of the Hills Vineyard 

Both wines are made in limited quantities.

We are excited to have ‘We Do Fudge’ of Sequim back on-site pairing the perfect fudge flavors with our wines.

A scrumptious red wine perfectly paired with just the right chocolate can bring out the romantic in anyone. The Olympic Peninsula Wineries will take that perfect pairing to another level this year, bringing together new release varietals and blends created with premium Washington grapes and decadent chocolate delights that will make you a better wine lover! Don’t miss the Red Wine & Chocolate Tour, which will take place over two delicious weekends, Feb. 9th & 10th and 16th, 17th, & 18th from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Enjoy a leisurely drive through the scenic Peninsula towns of Chimacum, Nordland (Marrowstone Island), Port Townsend, Sequim and Port Angeles where NINE artisan wineries will delight your senses!
