A Weekend of wine and chocolate

For Valentines Day, I got tickets for us to go on a chocolate wine trail in Hermann, mo. Local wineries pair up their favorite wines with some kind of chocolate dessert, from truffles to muffins. We had a map and the names of the wineries - other than that we were off on our own little adventure. It was a great time. Seven wineries participate in the wine trail and we hit them all. You can take the entire weekend to go to all of the wineries so we decided to taste on the first day, take notes, and go back to the ones we liked and buy on the second day. Adam Puchta Winery, the first winery we went to, was our favorite. They had a great variety of sweet wines - our fav! We also got some great scenery pics. The pics taken with us both in them were done by other people, so some of them are kind of blurry. We appreciated the offer of having our picture taken, so I can't complain!
Steve made the overnight arrangements and took care of all of the driving - he is so sweet. He always drives because he knows that I will fall asleep in the car! I try to stay awake, but that seldom happens. My inner sleep monster takes over.
