Friday night the Washington Wine Academy hosted a special wine event at the Athenaeum in Old Town, Alexandria. It was the perfect opportunity to set the mood for Valentine’s Day and indulge in one of the most perfect combinations: Red wine and chocolate.
The Athenaeum, part of the Virginia Fine Arts Association, provided an exquisite backdrop for the event with their current exhibition by GA Gardner. The room was light and airy with high-top tables scattered around the room and draped with dark red cloths. An assortment of chocolates were presented to compliment each of the wines.
Pearmund Cellars in Broad Run, VA. The spicy, complex wine was a Bordeaux style blend that was composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Merlot.
