The wineries of the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail are offering chocolate and wine tastings all during the month of February. I can’t think of a better way to warm the heart of your sweetie and reason for getting away. Each winery is offering different events and schedules so I suggest you check out each one at www.bvwinetrail.com. Although not a member of the wine trail, Vala Winery in Avondale (also in the Brandywine Valley is also offering music, wine, cheese, and chocolate events for Valentine’s and President’s Day weekend. So much to do, so little time. Again, check Vala’s web site for their special events and times at www.valawinery.com. We only have one accommodation left for Valentine’s weekend but the rest of the month we have plenty of availability. Also, the Orchid Extravaganza at Longwood Gardens is ongoing throughout February. If you haven’t walked through their conservatory you are in for a huge surprise. Picture 4 acres under glass filled with orchids and other exotic flowers while there is snow on the ground. It will warm the cockles of your heart. If anyone knows where the cockles are located, let me know. I took biology but never found them. If you book two nights in February (excluding the President’s Day weekend) and mention this blog, we’ll even give you a $75.00 gift certificate to Brandywine Prime. New bookings only please and may not be used with gift certificates or combined with any other special or discount.
