I’m giving you all a heads up for Valentine’s Day so that you have time to visit Kirigin Cellars in Gilroy and get some Vino de Mocca. This voluptuous wine is available only at the winery, so you will have to go out there to get some. But it will be worth it.
Vino de Mocca is an award-winning dessert wine infused with natural coffee, chocolate and orange flavors, and it’s incredibly sensuous and delicious. With its smooth, velvety texture and stunning flavors, it’s the perfect sweet wine as an after-dinner drink—or just to imbibe by itself. This chocolate-infused port is not a wine to pair with food, unless you’re having it with dessert, of course, but if you like a sweet touch, then this offers a dramatic punch. And beware! Known as “the kissing wine” it’s highly addictive!
Kirigin Cellars was founded in 1916 and is one of California’s oldest wineries. It even has a cricket pitch where games are regularly held. You can visit the sports fields and take a picnic and the entire family is welcome—even the dog!
Kirigin Cellars, 11550 Watsonville Road, Gilroy. (408) 847-8827. Kirigincellars.com. Open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tasting is complimentary.
