While a glass of wine is always enjoyable on its own, some things are better together. Wine pairs famously with dessert, and this November, you can indulge in six gourmet fudge pairings at Fox Meadow Winery’s Fudgeapalooza!
When and Where
Fudgeapalooza will be held at the Fox Meadow Winery on November 2 and 3. It will begin at 11 a.m. that Saturday, and will end at 6 p.m. that Sunday. Admission is $14 per person. The winery is located at 3310 Freezeland Road, Linden, Virginia 22642.
For the 12th annual event, the winery will pair six unique fudges with their own delicious varietals. Each pairing has been carefully curated to bring out the distinct character of each fudge and wine, and they will complement and contrast each other as you progress through sweet, rich, and bold flavors.
You can start the pairings on a lighter note with the Pinot Grigio and apple pie. The bright white wine offers notes of honey nectar and spring flowers to complement the pie’s sweet, simple qualities. Fox Meadow’s Oak Chardonnay lends a chilled citrus bite that lasts long after each sip to stand up to the persistent taste of Butterfinger fudge. With a bouquet of honeysuckle, rose petals, and star fruit, the Riesling makes the most of the banana, coconut, and pineapple fudge blend.
If you prefer red wines, Fox Meadow’s assortment of tinto is served with several dense, rich fudges. Their masterfully blended Meritage pairs with the toffee of a Heath bar, and a robust Cabernet Sauvignon holds up well to hearty German chocolate. It’s only fitting to end your grand tour with dessert, and the winery accommodates with the berry-forward Sunset Red paired with a saccharine Amaretto Chocolate.
