February in Shelburne: Cellar Tasting, Weekend of Chocolate, & V-day gift boxes

February is upon us, and in Vermont, this means a few things; frigid temperatures, cellar tastings, sweet foods, and warm gifts for you loved ones. As Valentine's Day approaches, there are few better ways to spend that special day than with a bottle of wine, and delicious treats!

A week before we start getting all lovey-dovey, we will be hosting our Annual Cellar Tasting tomorrow, Friday Feb 3! For $30, you can choose between a 5:30pm or 7:30pm tasting in our winery, hosted by our Head Winemaker, Ethan Joseph. Enjoy tastings of our pre-release wines straight out of the oak barrel or fermentation tank, as well as light refreshments, and discussions about our wines. Call now to reserve tickets, only a few spaces left! Click HERE for more information.

Want to take your sweetie out on the town during the Valentine's Day weekend? Join us at our Tasting Room in Shelburne, VT for a Weekend of Chocolate! On Saturday, Feb 11, we will be hosting Douglas Sweets for pairings of our wines and their treats, as well as our $7 wine tastings, and wine by the glass. On Sunday, Feb 12, we will be hosting Bijou Fine Chocolates for pairings of our wines and their truffles, along with our wine tastings and wine by the glass. Click HERE for more information.

Not only have we been tirelessly planning these fun events, but we have also been working with our neighbors at Bijou Fine Chocolates, Douglas Sweets, and Good Comida to offer three wonderful gift box options to surprise your sweetie with. Whether they like artisan chocolates, handmade shortbread, or decadent cheesecake, we have options to satisfy anyone's palate!

The Bijou Valentine's Day Gift Box features a chocolate covered orange slice, cocoa almonds, dark chocolate covered pretzels, and Fleur de Sel sea salt caramels, all made across the street from our winery at Bijou Fine Chocolates. Pair these chocolates with our Marquette Reserve or Harvest Widow's Revenge.

The Douglas Sweets Valentine's Day Gift Box features a box of four shortbread-filled truffles (Pecan Turtle, Espresso Bean, Orange Bourbon Whiskey, & Raspberry Hibiscus), a box of traditional shortbread cookies, and a jar of Meyer Lemon marmalade, also made a stone's throw away from our winery. Pair these treats with our Cayuga White or Louise Swenson.

The Good Comida Valentine's Day Gift Box chocolate-peanut butter buckeyes, chocolate chunk cookies with sea salt, and heart-shaped sugar cookies filled with chocolate raspberry ganache, made just down the road from our winery in Shelburne. Pair these goodies with our LaCrescent or Celestial Louise

These special Valentine's Day Gift Boxes DO NOT include bottles of wine, so make sure to add a bottle to our cart separately!
