Embrace Local

It is the perfect season to celebrate the artisans in our community who put heart and soul into their craft. Two family-owned businesses at the Vermont Artisan Village have been working hard to lovingly create special treats for Valentine’s Day.

Bijou Fine Chocolate raises the bar on your chocolate experience with passion and dedication to quality.  The Classic Heart Box from Bijou will delight and surprise with its contemporary style and exquisite contents.

The talented bakers at Douglas Sweets have created unique flavors and presentations to make your loved ones smile.  Their Valentine’s Day Box contains signature shortbread in a flavor of your choice, a sweet chocolate-dipped heart, and a dozen truffles covered in chocolate ganache that reveal rich shortbread on the inside.

Take the opportunity to sample treats from these fine artisan producers at Shelburne Vineyard’s Wine and Chocolate Weekend on February 11 and 12. On Saturday, Douglas Sweets will share samples of their sweet and savory shortbread creations. Bijou Fine Chocolate will offer samples on Sunday, with chocolates especially crafted to pair with Shelburne Vineyard’s wines. Both producers will also have their treats for sale at the event, beautifully packaged and ready for giving. Pair all of this with a wine tasting for $7 per person, and you have the ultimate local Valentine’s celebration.
