Wine and Chocolate for Lovers

You can’t beat the combination of chocolate and wine for the month of romance. Three Sisters Vineyards in Dahlonega has an annual Wine and Chocolate Lovers celebration the first three weekends in February, from 1 -5 p.m. If you’re just passing through, try the $12 wine tasting in the tasting room. You’ll get a few chocolates, the wine and a glass. But if you’re serious about it, make a reservation for the special $25 tasting, held in the winery itself. Here they have hand-dipped chocolates (strawberries, pretzels, etc.) from the Fudge Factory in Dahlonega and special truffles from Connecticut. The tasting includes a chocolate cup with Three Sister’s Georgia Port, and a special double chocolate cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory.

“A lot of people in Atlanta are unaware that we have wineries in Georgia,” says owner Doug Paul. “There are some wonderful people all over the state dedicated to the craft.” Three Sisters Vineyards is a founding member of the Georgia Wine Council. Situated on 184 acres between Dahlonega and Cleveland, the vineyard cultivates Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, Touriga, Cynthiana-Norton and Vidal Blanc producing about 3000 cases a year. Wine Spectator gave Three Sisters Vineyards 2000 Merlot the highest rating of all Georgia wines the the Wine Across America issue. Turner South named Three Sisters Blue Ribbon’s “Best Winery in The South.” Ritz-Carlton-Georgia Trend named Three Sisters Vineyards Georgia Port – “Best Georgia Dessert Wine” in 2007 and 2008.

If you want in on the special tasting – get your reservations, they’re booking up fast. Driving directions (about an hour and 15 minutes north on Georgia 400) are on their website.
