Just in time for Valentine’s Day: Wine and chocolate come together at Pechanga

Temecula Valley, for many, is synonymous with Southern Californian wine country with eighty percent of visitors to the area partaking in wine-related activities according the recent PRWEB.com announcement that the area will see an explosion of growth in hospitality over the next year. In fact, PRWEB.com goes on further to describe Pechanga Resort & Casino’s recent ground-breaking on a “$285 million expansion, more than doubling its current size. When complete, visitors to Pechanga Resort & Casino will enjoy a resort-style pool complex featuring a fitness center, hydrotherapy pool terrace, and eight pool areas; two new restaurants (bringing the total up to 13); a new two-story spa and salon with 17 treatment rooms; and a new AAA Four Diamond luxury 568-room/suite hotel wing.” A taste of old world luxury in our own backyard.

To enjoy it for yourself, consider Pechanga Resort & Casino’s 9th Annual Chocolate Decadence and Wine Festival weekend taking place Friday, February 10th and Saturday, February 11th. Hundreds of wine varietals, sweet and savory chocolate confections, gourmet food samples, live music, and a silent auction benefiting Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley will be waiting for you. The confections are dazzling and the Chefs of the award-winning Great Oak Steakhouse, Umi Sushi & Oyster Bar are just a couple of the restaurants that have an amazing lineup of taste-ables planned for your palate. Local vineyards as well as labels from Napa, Sonoma, Italy, France, and more will be filling your glass. Take a sneak peek for yourself:
