Carlson Vineyards is holding its “Cherry ‘n Chocolate” tastings - Stop by Carlson Vineyards on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in February for tastings of “Cherry ‘n Chocolate”. February is "Arts, Hearts, and Tarts" month.
What is Cherry ‘n Chocolate? Taste the rich flavors of Carlson Cherry wine sipped from a glass rimmed in Enstrom’s premium semi-sweet dark chocolate. Savor cold Cherry wine over warm velvety chocolate. Winery visitors love this combo! Carlson's Cherry wine is made from pure, Colorado-grown Montmorency pie cherries - it's a sweet-tart wine with big flavors like a cherry pie without the crust.

It's fun for dessert, with friends, romantic evenings, a chocolate fix, girlfriend get-togethers, Mother's Day, and gift-giving anytime. Easy, delectable, and so decadent!
