Just in time for Valentine’s Day, join Riverbench Vineyard & Winery on February 11 at 10 a.m. as they partner with Jessica Foster Confections and pair sparkling wine with four decadent chocolate truffles.

Jessica Foster transforms chocolate into an epicurean art, blending by hand exotic teas, herbs and spices to create intriguing flavors like Dark Chocolate Chile and Milk Chocolate Star Anise-Thyme. Better yet, the tasting fee of $20 will be refunded to all who join the Riverbench wine club that day.

Famed for its fine Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Riverbench Vineyard was established in 1973, when its first Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes were planted on the property.
