There are sweets for the sweet in Lodi on February 9-10 at the annual Lodi Wine & Chocolate Weekend. What is better than wine, chocolate and your special loved one for Valentine’s weekend? Lodi Wine Country and forty wineries will be open for tasting their handcrafted wines and decadent chocolates.
Lodi is a wonderful jewel in California’s wine regions. Many of the wineries are extensions of the wine growers that have been growing grapes in this region for many decades. As you travel through this area you are taken back to rural agricultural California. Here you will find Zinfandel grapes growing on vines that are over 100 years old and younger vines of Cabernet, Chardonnay, and a wide range of Spanish and Italian varietals. The location is ideal for wine grapes with plenty of sun and the cooling influences of the delta.
During the Wine and Chocolate Weekend, Lodi appellation wineries will please your palate, pairing hand-crafted wines with an assortment of decadent chocolate treats. Enjoy winery activities, including barrel tasting, new releases, wine and food pairings, special events and live music throughout the weekend. Meet the local vintners and growers as they share the wine and hospitality that makes Lodi Wine Country California’s newest fine wine region!
Tickets, good for both days of the event, are $45 in advance or $55 at the door of any participating winery, and complimentary for designated drivers. A commemorative wine glass, dark chocolate tin, and admission to participating wineries is included. Hours for the event are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.
