Heritage Station Winery's Valentine's weekend chocolate and wine tasting

I drove past the Heritage Station Winery and Market in the Richwood/Mullica Hill area the other day. My son's preschool class had gone apple picking in their orchards a couple of years ago, but I had forgotten about the place. Unfortunately, I didn't have time to stop in, but their sign outside caught my eye.

Heritage Station processes their own grapes and they process and bottle the wine in their own winery. They offer Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon as well as several fruit wines including Peach, Apple, Sugar Plum, Sour Cherry and Blueberry. They have tastings seven days a week and offer wine and cheese tastings with reservations.

They also have Wine 101 classes. The next one will be February 28th and the cost is $30.

What caught my eye as I drove past, however, was the sign advertising this upcoming Valentine's weekend's event. They are offering wine and chocolate tastings from 12 - 5 on Saturday and Sunday. Cost is $8/person.

The market sells various jarred food with the Heritage Station logo on it - jams, salsas, etc. I'm not sure how much of it comes from their own farm, but it may be a source of local foods in the winter.

I don't know if I'll be able to make it down there this weekend, but I do hope to get there sometime soon, and I'll let you know what I find.
