Love is in the air, and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Your local Love Doctor– er, your team at Pippin Hill Farm and Vineyards–has planned a full three days of romance atop the Hill. We’re pulling out all of the stops with specials from the cellar and the kitchen to add a little extra romance throughout the month of February. Even Cupid would be impressed!
FEBRUARY EVENINGS ON THE HILL
Join us for dinner on The Hill this Valentine’s Weekend. Chef Ian Rynecki and the Pippin Culinary Team have put together a delicious French Bistro inspired 3-course prix-fixe menu for $48 per person.

FROM THE CELLAR – EXCLUSIVE WINE SPECIALS
Your favorite Sparkling Rosé is back– for a limited time! We are re-releasing our Sparkling Rosé for online purchase starting February 1st through Valentine’s Day. Treat your loved one to a bottle… or two.
Additionally, our February Pours Trio is specially curated for your Valentine’s celebration, complete with our Sparkling Rosé 2019, Chardonnay Reserve 2018 and Easton Blue 2017 ($110). Begin your meal with Sparkling Rosé which pairs perfectly with soft cheeses, light salads and oysters. Both the Chardonnay Reserve and Easton Blue pair well with entrée dishes. To finish your meal, reach for what’s left of the Sparkling Rosé 2019, as it pairs wonderfully with chocolate cake, dark chocolate truffles or may we suggest strawberry cheesecake.
