Chocolate & Wine

Where to Go for Delactable Wine and Chocolate in SW Lake County.

Nothing says Happy Valentine’s Day quite like chocolate, and wine is a great way to pair two delectable treats for everybody’s sweetest day of the year.

Chocolate-making here goes as far back as 1920, and several wine-making operations are now calling Lake County home.

From Wheeling to Wauconda, and nearby Palatine to Long Grove, make plans to visit a confectionery or wine shop this month with someone you love. Take a sip of wine, bite into some fine chocolate, and enjoy the experience with someone you love.
