It’s almost time for the Lodi Wine & Chocolate Weekend! This event is on calendar from the 7th to the 9th of February. No, it’s not a coincidence that it’s the weekend before Valentine’s Day. We’re big lovers of wine and chocolate at All in One Limousine (although we swear off the former for New Years and limit the latter while we’re driving). We’re so excited to help you experience this one-of-a-kind celebration of the finer things right in our backyard.
All in One Limousine has been participating in this event for nearly a decade. This is the first time, however, that the festival will kick off with winemaker’s dinners at several participating wineries on Friday night. These events are curated by the winemakers, who have put together custom menus of food and wine pairings for the evening.
The dinners include (amongst others) an All White Valentine Night at Acquiesce, with Rhône-style white wine pairings for each of the four courses served and an (optional) all-white dress code. You could also check out the Barrel Dinner at McCay Vineyards, with food and wine pairings prepared by winemaker Michael McCay & wife, Linda. The Passion for Port at St. Amant is focused on chocolates and chocolate-based foods, with pairings selected to go well with chocolate. So is the Chocolate Wonderland dinner at M2 wines.
If this sounds good to you, act quickly! Tickets for Friday night at different wineries are quickly selling out. Give us a call and we can help you to set up a plan for transportation to and from these events in style. We have limos, buses, vans, SUV’s, town cars and more available for groups both big and small, and we’d love to get you to and from where you’re going safely and in style and comfort.
On Saturday and Sunday, more than 40 participating wineries are offering wine tasting accompanied by special events. The wristbands purchased cover your tastings at all of the participating wineries. Almost all are offering discounts on wine; similarly, most participating wineries are offering chocolate or chocolate-based foods like mole. Several will have live music to offer. Some are planning art-related events as well, including woodworking, arts & crafts, and art available for viewing or purchase.
Whatever it is you want to do, we’re here to help you get there safe. Driving, after all, is a varietal that doesn’t blend well with wine. All In One Limousine will take care of that for you. We’ll pick you up on time, get you to where you’re going, and make sure that you’re comfortable, cared for, and happy during the journey. We pride ourselves on our professionalism and attention to detail, but we’re not self-driving cars (yet!): our chauffeurs bring a listening ear, an open heart, and sense of humor to each and every job. Give us a call today! Cindy 925-513-4175
