Sip with your Sweetheart
Saturday February 9, 2019 AND
Sunday February 10, 2019
12pm to 4pm
At participating wineries of the Westside Wine Trail.
Grab your Valentine and join us as we celebrate love and Okanagan wine with our “Sip with your Sweetheart” event.
On February 9th and 10th, each winery along the Westside Wine Trail will offer decadent wine and chocolate pairings that have been carefully created and harmonized by local chefs, bakers and sommeliers.
At Rollingdale Winery, we will be featuring our 2016 FORT, a Port-style wine made with organic estate Marechal Foch and be partnering once again with Purdys Chocolatier. Purdys Chocolatier will be on site to provide samples of the two incredible treats described below and will also have chocolates available for purchase so you can get some Valentine's shopping done at the same time.
Himalayan Pink Salt Caramels: "Crafted from our original 1907 caramel recipe invented by Richard Carmon Purdy (the company's founder and original chocolatier), these chocolates have some serious chew. Each 18pc box holds 9 caramels enrobed in milk chocolate and 9 caramels enrobed in dark chocolate, topped with Himalayan pink salt crystals. Crafted from 100% sustainable cocoa."
Turona: "Named after a 16th-century Spanish confection, Turona features a smoothly blended layer of almond/hazelnut gianduja (jan-doo-yah), creamy milk chocolate and crispy French pastry flakes, topped by a dark chocolate layer, all enrobed in dark chocolate and sprinkled with French pastry flakes. Crafted with 100% sustainable cocoa."
Enjoy a sip of delicious FORT, then treat yourself to a Chocolate Lover's ultimate indulgence from Purdys Chocolatier and then take another sip of FORT and discover how the chocolate pairing brings out new flavours.
