Warm up for Valentine's Day: Red Wine & Chocolate Tour slated on North Olympic Peninsula

Peninsula Daily News

Eight North Olympic Peninsula wineries are offering a sweet preview to Valentine's Day on Saturday and Sunday, the first weekend of their annual Red Wine & Chocolate Tour.

The wineries will present unusual pairings -- such as chocolate-dipped potato chips with a red wine reduction sauce or a caramel-and-sea-salt-drizzled chocolate cake with a Bolero blend -- from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

Visitors can take self-guided tours of wineries in Clallam and Jefferson counties this weekend and the following weekend, Feb. 19-20.

The $25 ticket and glass package entitles ticket-holders to a special commemorative wine glass, complimentary wine-tasting and samples of chocolate at each winery.

Those without tickets will be charged $5 wine-tasting fees at each winery.

In addition, Toga's Soup House, 122 W. Lauridsen Blvd., Port Angeles, which is usually only open Mondays through Fridays, will be open for the tour from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday.
