If you're looking for a romantic way to spend Valentine's Day--this just might do the trick. The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey in Canon City is holding a special chocolate sampling and wine tasting Saturday and Sunday. Chocolove's organic and raspberry chocolates will get your taste buds dancing. Swirl some 2008 Colorado Merlot Divinity dessert wine in your mouth and you're sure to get a great taste sensation. You couldn't do better in Napa Valley.
Chololove chocolates are made in Boulder featuring premium Belgium chocolates. Each bar resembles a love letter, with a romantic poem printed on the inside of each wrapper.
Winemaker Matt Cookson says the 2008 Colorado Merlot Divinity has hints of raspberry and chocolate in the nose and on the palate, making the chocolate and wine a perfect pairing.
The Tasting Room at the Abbey will be open Saturday from 10 am - 5 pm, Sunday noon - 5 pm.
