Whether you are a chocoholic or oenophile, you can indulge while supporting sick children at the Lakeridge Winery 2017 Wine and Chocolate Festival on Dec. 8 – 10.
This weekend’s 2017 Wine and Chocolate Festival at Lakeridge Winery and Vineyards will feature local artists and crafters displaying their work, live music on an outdoor stage, and of course plenty of wine and chocolate. Visitors can start by taking a free wine tasting tour where they’ll receive a complimentary taste of chocolate paired with a featured Lakeridge wine.
This year, some of the area’s top Chocolatiers — including B & B Chocolates, Maitland Chocolate Factory, and Simply Sweets Chocolates and Pastries — will display their creations inside an outdoor air-conditioned tent dubbed “Chocolate Wonderland.” In addition, a Wine & Cheese Bar is located upstairs in the wine shop and will be open noon to 4 p.m. each day of the festival with drinks, food, and more live entertainment.
Lakeridge wine, beer, soft drinks and a variety of food will be available for purchase, along with complimentary Winery tours and tasting. A portion of the proceeds go to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida.
The Wine and Chocolate Festival will be held on Dec. 8, 9, and 10, 2017, at 19239 U.S. 27 North, Clermont, Florida. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Admission costs $8 for adults (children 12 and under or free), and tickets can be purchased at the gate or in advance through Eventbright.
