An annual tradition just got a whole lot sweeter. Leading wineries throughout New Jersey will provide the setting for a pair of romantic weekends in February to celebrate Valentine’s Day when the Garden State Wine Growers Association presents its annual Wine & Chocolate Wine Trail Weekend, February 8-9 and Feb. 15-16 at participating wineries throughout New Jersey.
Chocolate and wine have always been the perfect “pairing.” Why not bring your loved one out for a chance to explore New Jersey wine country and visit the many trails and wineries located throughout the state as you enjoy the great chocolate and dessert treats being offered at our state’s wineries while sipping the perfect Chardonnay, Cabernet or Sparkling wine to go with it.
The trails feature wine tastings and chocolate samplings from noon-5 p.m. at participating wineries, showcasing the award-winning New Jersey wines being produced by the more than 40 wineries now operating throughout the state. From the Skylands in Northern Sussex County to the tip of Cape May, six different wine trails await you. Each winery along the way will offer wine tastings, tours, live music and other entertainment, special food preparation or dinners, as part of this special Wine & Chocolate Wine Trail Weekend.
