Valentine's Day - Time for Pairings

Special Dinners for Valentine's Day in Clark County

Valentine's Day is coming up in just two weeks, and that's a special event that may require some planning. Especially if you want to enjoy a special dinner with your special person - it's one of the busiest days of the year for restaurants. A few of our favorites for special occasions are Gray's at The Park in the Vancouver Hilton, Hudson's Bar and Grill in the Heathman Lodge, and our local favorite Roots in Camas.  Each offers fresh, locally sourced cuisine, great ambiance and service, and excellent wine selections.  Gray's is offering a special Valentine's Day menu, but you can be assured that any of these spots will offer a memorable dining experience.  

 

Pairing Wine and Chocolate for Valentine's Day

Red wine pouringDark Chocolate

My husband and I embrace the notion that if red wine and dark chocolate each have health benefits, then why not enjoy them together? And there's nothing wrong with celebrating Valentine's a little early.  

 



This month's First Friday in downtown Camas features "A Chocolate Affair to Remember" on February 6th.  The whole town joins in to celebrate the Valentine-themed event. Each business will have a jar of candy - guess the the amount to win. There will also be wine tastings and truffle sampling, and the opportunity to win gift baskets of chocolate. Festivities include karaoke, a DJ, and two art shows that will run from at 5 to 8 pm.

If you're up for a full weekend of pairing wine and chocolate, Clark County wineries offer their annual Wine and Chocolate Tour at some of its featured wineries. Various styles of red and white varietals will be paired with a range of white, milk, and dark chocolates. Participating wineries include: Confluence Vineyards & Winery, East Fork Cellars, Rusty Grape VineyardsOlequa CellarsGouger Cellars & Winery, and Burnt Bridge Cellars in Vancouver. For more information and a map of all wineries in Clark County, visit www.swwawine.com.
