Celebrate Chocolate Month Along the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail

Black Walnut Winery partners with Bridge Street Chocolates in this delicious must-do event.



Don’t forget: Before the month ends, take your sweetheart to celebrate chocolate month with the wineries of the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail as they present delicious wine and chocolate tastings and other romantic events. Here’s a sampling:

On Feb. 22, Black Walnut Winery in Sadsburyville, Pa., will offer its wines paired with gourmet chocolates from Bridge Street Chocolates of Phoenixville. Your $20 ticket buys you a commemorative glass. A wine and chocolate education class on Feb. 23 introduces you to winemaker Lance Caste and chocolatier Gail Warner, owner of Bridge Street Chocolates. Lance will take you through the journey of winemaking, describing the process of making the most common types of wine. Gail will explain the journey of making chocolate. Learn about where cacao is grown, how different regions impart distinctive flavors to the beans, and how cacao beans are harvested and prepared. The class ends with a sampling. Reservations for all events are required. Call (610) 857-5566. blackwalnutwinery.com

Taste five of Penns Woods Winery’s reserve wines paired with local chocolates and chocolate desserts. The deliciousness happens in Chadds Ford Feb. 21-23. For reservations, call (610) 459-0808. pennswoodswinery.com
