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. A lucky person will unwrap the “Golden Ticket” at any participating winery and win one of over 100 other prizes.
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.
