Live jazz starring Eric Lilley, a chocolate mini-bar and dancing merge for an unforgettable end to a Valentine's celebration. Of course, the night isn't just meant for couples. Whether you come single or with a date or a group of friends, Keystone's Winter Wine Weekend is all about good taste.
The divine celebration continues on Saturday, Feb. 15, at 7 p.m. with a wine tasting accompanied by select food pairings. Visitors will be able to choose from a broad spectrum of varietals in this walk-around event, showcasing bold fireplace reds with sparkling and winter whites.
Hors d'oeuvres, cheeses and breads prepared by Black Diamond Catering will be available to sample with each sip, while top wine specialists from Republic National Distributing Co. help you to develop your palate. Live music by Deano, featuring the classic sounds of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, round out a memorable and affordable weekend of indulgences at Warren Station.
