If you haven’t experienced the hottest wine craze to sweep through the Miami Valley this winter, Winans Fine Chocolates & Coffee is featuring the Dutch red wine that evokes a memory of a childhood Yoohoo drink. According to the ChocoVine website it’s “a fine French Cabernet subtly combined with a rich dark Chocolate from Holland, paired together to create a decadent, silky smooth drink, which can be served by itself on the rocks or as the main ingredient to an array of sinful cocktails.”
Judge for yourself this Thursday, Friday or Saturday, Feb 5 – 7, as Winans presents their pre-Valentines wine tastings between 6-10pm each night. Their tastings traditionally feature 2 reds, 2 whites and a specialty wine and it’s $3/taste, $6/glass or try all 5 wines for $12. House wines are always available by the glass, or chose a bottle from the shelf, over 50 to choose from! Oh and the best part about Winans Tastings- the chocolate fountain will be running and you can dip strawberries, marshmallows, pretzels and graham crackers as part of the cost of your tasting! And that’s pretty cool for a Chocoholic like me!
