Giveaway: Days of Wine & Chocolate passes (CLOSED)

Days of Wine and ChocolateIf you’ve been following this blog for a number of years, you might remember a few posts about Days of Wine & Chocolate, a month-long event that takes place on February weekends at wineries in the Niagara-on-the-Lake region.  Visit the wineries for your chance to taste over 20 VQA wines matched with chocolate-infused dishes – there’s everything from sweet flavour combinations to unexpected savoury surprises. A great weekend or day trip to brighten up the dreary cold days of February!

Touring passes are $45 per person and to encourage responsibly tasting, there are also Designated Driver passes available for $25. Please designate a driver who is not drinking and purchase one of these!  Passes are valid for any of the four event weekends in February and are available for purchase here now or…..

Disclosure: I have not been compensated to promote this event and I won’t even be attending myself this year although I was offered media passes (two words: cookbook deadline!). I happen to think Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake does a fabulous job promoting their wines through events like these, have attended many of the weekend events before and think everyone should go check it out!

    It’s easy , hands down would love to try from Coyotes Run Estate Winery, 2013 Black Paw Cabernet Sauvignon paired with a dark chocolate and bacon brownie. Who doesn’t love bacon ? 🍷🍫😍

    I went to to this event last year and it was great! I would love to win a couple of passes. This year I am most interested to try The STREWN WINERY pairing. The 2011 Cabernet Franc Icewine paired with a savoury chocolate trio: pulled pork with cocoa on a tortilla chip, roast rhubarb with white chocolate shavings, Thai peanut butter ball in dark chocolate. Sounds wonderful to me.
