Nothing Says Love Like 27 Glasses of Wine

By chet | February 3, 2011

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.
