Nothing Says Love Like 27 Glasses of Wine

If you are a guy, you can’t help but feel Valentine’s Day creeping up.  Walk into the grocery store and you see it.  Or Walgreens.  Or even the gas station.  Nothing says “I cherish you” like a beef/cheese stick combo pack.  Trust me guys, I tried it, and she married me.

The big V-day is everywhere.  Red hearts, teddy bears, and other fuzzy, lovable things meant to inspire AMOR.  If you are like me, you ran out of teddy bear and balloon credits somewhere in high school.  So, you need to dig a little deeper this year.

Here’s a Texas idea for you that is totally nontraditional and will get both you and your sweetheart out exploring Texas.  It’s a Valentine’s Texas Wine Tour.  Buy a ticket and you get chocolates and tasting tickets to 27 Hill Country wineries to use over the weekend.  It is self-guided, so it doesn’t come with a designated driver.  So, please pace yourself and don’t be stupid (that means driving drunk or even buzzed).  However, if done right, it sounds like a lot of fun.

Here’s the official information:
Come spend a romantic weekend in the stunning Texas Hill Country, sipping and sampling wine and chocolate at the 27 Hill Country wineries. Spend the weekend with a loved one, discovering the wine and nibbling on the signature chocolates created just for you. February 11-14th. Enjoy the self-guided tour for one or both weekends of the Wine Lovers Trail. You can start by collecting your box of local handmade chocolates at the designated winery of your choice. With custom chocolates in hand, visit each winery and pair with their complimentary tastes. Ticket costs for the trail are $35/person and $60/couple.  Individual tickets include one set of complimentary tastes at each winery and one box of chocolates. Couple tickets include two sets of complimentary tastes at each winery and one box of chocolates. What a great way to remember your Wine Lovers trip than to purchase your favorites wines to take home. Wineries will offer a 15% discount on three bottle purchases with your ticket.
Your ticket includes: A minimum of 1 and up to 3 complimentary tastes of wine per person at each winery, One box of chocolates per ticket (single and couple), 15% discount on three bottle wine purchases at each winery (winery choice). For tickets visit http://www.texaswinetrail.com/tickets.html
