February White-Out is here. The perfect companion for the Winter Olympics and all the other winter festivals popping up in almost every state.
Long Island Wine Country is hosting its annual WinterFest with Jazz on the Vine now through March 21. This is a really fun time in wine country. The music is terrific and there is no better way to enjoy tasting some of the world class wines from this region.
If you are in the north east and can easily get to Long Island Wine country it is definitely worth a trip. The entertainment at the wineries is free. Mark your calendar for the next week and take a field trip. It’ll be nice to get out of the house for a few hours.
First, my very favorite event is the chocolate and wine pairing that Lieb Family Cellar’s is hosting the entire month of February. Every Saturday and Sunday the tasting room will pair 5 gourmet chocolates chosen specifically to pair with 5 of Lieb’s terrific wines. A chocolate lover’s delight!
Mark your calendars for next weekend SATURDAY & SUNDAY FEBRUARY 20-21 with this list of participating wineries that will have free music to enjoy. You can find the times and contact information here.
