Local wineries plan tasting prior to Valentines Day

— The Champlain Winery will be holding tastings from noon to 8 p.m. The Champlain wines will be paired with chocolates from Dove Chocolate Discovery. The rates will be $3 for five wine samples and $5 for seven samples. Patrons who try seven samples will be given their choice of a wine charm or a chocolate wine truffle to take home with them.

Elfs Farm Winery and Cider Mill will be serving a sweetheart treat of “Heart Squeezed Red Hard Cider” during their winery tasting. The cider tasting will be free of charge and the bottles will be available for $7.99.

A representative from the winery said the cider is aged in whiskey barrels and for people who love cider, Elfs’ cider is “different than any cider they’ve ever tried.” The Elfs wine will also be available for the tasting.

For more information about any of the tastings call the vineyards and wineries.

“The is a special opportunity to not only try wine but to try wines paired with the right chocolates,” Natalie Peck, co-owner of the Champlain Wine Company said. “It will also be a chance to try something new, something local and a chance to prepare for Feb. 14.”
