Yakima, WA — Dark chocolate and red wine are often referred to as the real food of love. A weekend getaway to sunny Yakima Valley will warm the heart of your special valentine during the annual Red Wine & Chocolate event weekend on February 15-17, 2014.
When properly paired, the combination of red wine and chocolate creates a delightful indulgence. In fact, studies have shown that red wine and dark chocolate in moderation are good health choices not just on Valentine’s Day, but for any occasion.
As part of this Yakima Valley festival, wineries from Yakima, Zillah, Prosser and Red Mountain will be offering a weekend of divine decadence with the Premier Pass for the only way to experience the depth of the Yakima Valley during Red Wine & Chocolate weekend.
Pass holders will receive access to exclusive pairings, library tastings and tours not available to the public. The pairings continue as the wines featured are available to take home for deep discounts for Premier Pass holders.
The $30 Red Wine & Chocolate Premier Passes can be purchased in advance by February 10 at www.wineyakimavalley.org, or for $35 at wineries during the event weekend. This is the perfect time to come experience the bold, intense wines that characterize this premier wine region and meet the Yakima Valley’s most talented vintners during a memorable weekend of red wine and chocolate indulgence.
