There are few pairs as satisfying as red wine and chocolate, and in the Lake Chelan Wine Valley there is an entire festival dedicated to celebrating this decadent duo! Red Wine and Chocolate will take place for not one, but two weekends this month, February 8-9 and 15-16.
The fine tasting rooms of Lake Chelan Valley will have many unique and perfect pairings like Bordeauxs with dark and milk chocolate covered caramel corn, estate reds with roasted chocolate almonds, Pinot Noir with chocolate truffles, port with chocolate chip brownies, and even Cab Franc with chocolate covered bacon. Visit the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce website to see all the fabulous pairings that will be on offer.
Whether you plan a romantic weekend with a significant other or a relaxing weekend getaway with friends, you are sure to be delighted with the indulgence of Red Wine and Chocolate. And some great news – there are many wineries within walking distance from the lodge: Rio Vista At The Cabin, Wine Girl Wines, Skagit Cellars, Wapato Point Cellars, CR Sandige Wines and MVP Vintners.
And to get to the wineries that aren’t as walkable, you can book a tour company to take you to places like Lake Chelan Winery, Succession Wines and Tipsy Canyon Wines. Ride in style with Chelan Wine Tours and Excursions or Lakeside Limousine – both great options!
