Celebrate Lake Chelan’s Month of Love with artisan wine and chocolate pairings! Every February, the Lake Chelan Wine Valley welcomes couples in love and Galentine groups for a much needed winter getaway. The highlight is found in wandering into our wineries’ tasting rooms to indulge in the best red wine and chocolate. Romance, limousine rides, library wines, chocolate, and wine all month long…we can’t think of anything better! This month we’re highlighting some of our favorite wineries who are helping us make this holiday something special.
Join Ancestry Cellars all month long for a five-course chocolate pairing. With chocolate imported from Maui to Michigan, they have thoughtfully procured and paired only the best. Stop in to sample these delectable chocolates paired with their exquisite wines. We highly recommend their 2016 La Soeur. And yes, they are even pairing some white wine with chocolate again this year! Check out more details on their lineup here.
Siren Song Wines
Visit Siren Song where they are celebrating love in the air all month long. Featuring hand-crafted chocolates paired with their award-winning reds, plus a special dessert and wine pairing for the bubbles lovers. Their restaurant is also open for romantic dining with a special Valentine’s Weekend 4-course Prix Fixe Lobster Menu thoughtfully created and intentionally paired with the perfect Siren Song wines.

Rocky Pond Winery
Valentine’s Weekend, Rocky Pond Winery will have local artist Sam Page Designs providing a pop up showcasing her beautiful jewelry.

Rocky Pond will also be extending hours including remaining open on Valentine’s Day, Sunday the 14th from 11-6pm. As a special treat for Valentine’s Day weekend, they will be offering chocolate Grand Marnier fondue with long stem strawberries, lady fingers, dried tropical fruit, baby banana, and li hing mui mango.

The month of love at Succession Wines will be a red wine lover’s delight!

These Black Label reds feature grapes from Candy Mountain and Red Mountain vineyards so they are sure to dance on your palate leaving you wanting more. With heated patio seating, the vineyard lit row by row, and a beautiful view of the lake, you’ll have a memorable visit at Succession Wines.
To celebrate the Month of Love, Cairdeas partnered with local chocolate artisan, Merrow Chocolatier to offer an optional truffle pairing with every single tasting flight in February. We’ve also created a For the Love of Red Wine & Chocolate Collection so you can experience the pairings from the comfort of home. BONUS: Your purchase includes access to a Virtual Wine & Chocolate Pairing on Sunday, February 28th with the winemakers and the chocolatier. Both the February tasting flight and For the Love collection include a BRAND NEW RELEASE, our first ever varietal Alicante Bouschet, with just 77 cases produced. We are pretty sure you won’t want to miss the opportunity to enjoy these delicious wine and chocolate pairings from the comfort of your own home.
