Valentine's Day with PIZZAZZ!
Enjoy Valentine's Day by doing something different this year. The Western Slope has never had an event like this....live jazz, food, chocolate and wine!
Treat your special someone to a romantic event, or bring along a group of friends for a unique night out!
The evening will begin promptly at 6:30pm where the winemaker will educate us on pairing chocolate and wine. You will taste savory chocolate finger food like you've never had before and notice how the flavors explode when paired with the proper wine. You will leave this event knowing more about pairing food, wine and champagne than most sommeliers!
With a live jazz quartet in the background, feel free to dance throughout the night.
The 5 courses (appetizer-size) and the wine that will be paired with each:
1. Savory Decadence - Rich chocolate pairings (Red, Rose, and sparkling) Peruvian espresso fudge chocolate truffles with cayenne, hickory smoked Marfa tomato and jalapeno jam Bacchus – Bin 3115 Merlot with hickory smoked saltana raisin and Machu pichu chocolate Dry roasted chocolate almonds 2. Fruitful Bliss - Fruit roll ups with dipping sauces (our version of a chocolate fountain) chocolate crepe with Palisade fruit spread filling and Love Potion No. 5 chocolate dipping sauce (the Cuvee blanc) Goat cheese with cinnamon cranberry (Barbera) 3. The Fire in my Heart - Chocolate soup (Merlot) Spinach Salad with Mangos, Dried Cranberries and Chocolate Vinaigrette (Barbera) Chipotle Chocolate dry rub pork ribs (Merlot) 4. Fountains of Love - dipping station with Varaison Love Potion Number 5 Banana, Pineapple, Strawberry, Mango 5. Mi Amore - The champagne course Tuxedo strawberries and Mimosa sparkler
Every lady will be presented with a rose and each person will take home a complimentary wine glass and carrying tray as a momento of the extraordinary night.
Bring a partner or make some new friends this Valentine's Day!
