Tightwad Tuesday: Valentine’s Day Edition


Still looking for something to do with your sweetheart this weekend, but don’t want to spend a ton of dough? Consider spending just $10 each for you and your honey to taste delicious ports and chocolates from five different wineries.


The Old Sugar Mill in Clarksburg , only about 15 minutes away from downtown Sac, will be hosting a Port & Chocolate Lovers Weekend on February 14 and 15. I am certainly a lover of both port and chocolate, and particularly the combo, so my significant other and I will definitely be there.

Of the five participating wineries, I have only previously tasted port from Carvalho Family Winery, which has both a ruby and tawny variety, and each was equally delicious. I am usually a tawny port girl, but the ruby was so full of intense berry flavors, that I just couldn’t pick a favorite.

I can’t wait to try the port offerings from the other wineries: Heringer Estates, Todd Taylor, Solomon Wine Co. and Revolution Wines  – each have a tasting room within the Old Sugar Mill. Revolution is interesting to note – they opened a tasting room in midtown last year and were hailed as Sacramento’s first “urban winery,” but continue to also have a tasting room at the Old Sugar Mill.

If you check it out, let us know what you thought!
