Meadery of the Rockies Honey Wines in the Spotlight for Valentine's Day

The secret is out! Meadery of the Rockies' honey wines are the perfect match for Valentine's Day! Reporters are taking note as Doug Caskey and Kyle Schlacter of the Colorado Wine Industry Development Board recommended our double-gold-winning Strawberry Honey Wine to pair with Valentine's chocolates and sweets. Here are recaps and links to coverage in Colorado Life Magazine and on KDVR FOX31:

For a sweet Valentine's Day wine, Colorado Life Magazine suggests a sweeter wine with chocolate pairings, including this Meadery of the Rockies Strawberry Honey Wine. Doug Caskey of the Colorado Wine Industry Development Board says, “It’s a delicious blend with a lovely, pinkish color—it has fantastic strawberry aromas and goes perfectly with chocolate-dipped strawberries. Meadery of the Rockies also makes the Chocolate Cherry Honey Wine, which is much darker and sweeter.” http://denverlifemagazine.com/…/valentines-day-colorado-wi…/

 

 

On FOX31, Kyle Schlacter of the Colorado Wine Industry Development Board recommends Meadery of the Rockies’ Strawberry Honey Wine as one of the most romantic wines around. http://kdvr.com/2017/02/13/50-shades-of-colorado-wine/
