If you do (and who doesn’t!),then the Escondido Wine & Culinary Campus is a place you don’t want to miss. With two tasting rooms open every Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 5 pm, there are wines available to satisfy any palate.
February is Sweethearts Month, so bring your Valentine in for an extra special wine experience. In our French chateau style castle, the Hidden Valley Enoteca samples wines from several boutique wineries from the hills around Escondido Wine Country.
This month, you can be part of a delicious new tradition with the debut of “214,” a special Lovers Blend port-style dessert wine. 214 is ONLY available in February, and a new 214 blend will be released every year. If you’re planning to whip up a special Valentine’s meal for the Love of your Life, use a little 214 with our recipe of the month, “Beef Tenderloin Steak with Port Reduction and Blue Cheese.”
Across campus at Belle Marie Winery, the Tasting Room always has at least ten different wines open in a variety of styles. Don’t be surprised to find some special wine and chocolate pairings being sampled in February.
