Burrell School Vineyards will be open for the President’s Day weekend, through Monday, with special chocolate-covered cherries and the new Ryan Oaks “Detention” Zinfandel, so zinfully delicious with chocolate anything. Did you know that eating chocolate can increase serotonin levels in the brain? It’s a natural neurostimulator that makes you happier! If you are feeling a bit down, dark chocolate can really pick you up, in more ways than one!
How about whipping up some cherry marmalade with a splash of Zin to put on your grilled pork chops? Or maybe an oven-roasted pork loin with apple butter and a dried cherry-cranberry compote? Soak the cherries in some Zin and you have a very Presidential adult sauce. Drink a toast to Abe & George! Holidays are meant to be celebrated. That’s why you have Monday off – so don’t sit around wondering what to do…go outside and play!
Note that both Poetic Cellars and Loma Prieta Wineries are also open for the Presidential weekend, and will be open on Monday from noon til 5pm. Both are offering Presidential chocolates as well – so go out and get your chocolate fix! Remember, it’s good for you!
