I'm sure we can all remember our first Valentine's Day with the sweetheart of our youth, quickly exchanging heart-shaped boxes of chocolate with shaky, awkward hands. As we all got older, the tradition of Valentine's Day evolved. With adult partners, we've all gone through the ordeal of pinning down reservations at crowded restaurants and shopping for the very best wine to bring along on our romantic evenings.
What if you could do both--nibble on bites of delicious chocolate like we did on our first Valentine's Days and appreciate that glass of beautifully crafted wine that came with adulthood? This Valentine's Day, Seal Beach Winery wants to bring you the extravagance of a date night out with the comfort of sweet, creamy chocolate. On Tuesday, February 14th (in case you need to be reminded!), we will be offering two glasses of wine off of our expansive wine menu accompanied by our new artisan Chocolate Cheese Plate for $15. Between the amazing price and the cozy intimacy of our tasting room, we know you'll be happy you took your date to Seal Beach Winery!
If you've been a member here at the winery for a little while, you certainly remember a time when we had little Hershey's chocolates strewn about the tasting room. These tiny, melt-in-your-mouth pieces of sweetness were delicious when mingled with our wines, and we've definitely heard your calls to bring them back. But how about we do one better for you, and give you a gourmet dessert plate that will tickle your palate in the same way, and enhance the flavors of the wine that you already enjoy?
We're excited to introduce our new dessert plate here in our tasting room. Of course, the main feature of our decadent sweets sampler is--you guessed it!--chocolate. In addition to an assortment of artisinal milk and dark chocolates from Spain, Ghana, and Peru, you'll also be treated to salty, handmade Valencia almonds. The mix of salty and sweet is not only enjoyable on its own, but will play with the flavors of whichever wine you're drinking and truly transform your experience. And you still have the main feature of the plate, Chocolate Cheese Fudge. This is, in fact, a beautiful, creamy marriage of chocolate and cheese, which are, of course, staples with wine.
Truly a unique and exciting addition to our already delicious cheese selections, come in and grab a custom made dessert plate with our wines in mind whenever your sweet tooth is tingling. We'll see you soon!
