"Red Wine and Chocolate" this weekend in local wineries

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Wineries across the Yakima Valley and Tri Cities are hosting "Red Wine and Chocolate" events this weekend.

Over 40 of them will offer red wine and a specific chocolate that goes with it. People can buy a Premier Pass at any of the wineries. The passes grant benefits like free reserved tastings or waiving tasting fees. Organizers say it helps to kick off the new year.

"It's the first event of the year which is always kinda fun. So you can kinda see what the wineries have been doing and some of their new releases," says Barbara Glover of Wine Yakima Valley.

Premier passes cost $35. You can buy those at any of the wineries tomorrow. Wine Yakima Valley's website has a full list of the participating places. You can find that here.
