Will you be our Valentine?
It’s this time of year we often get asked what we are doing to celebrate Valentine’s Day. While some say flowers and chocolates define Valentine’s Day, we think today’s modern couple looks to craft wine and beer to toast this special day. The good news is, we have both, making a stop at Schram the perfect way to speak each other’s love language. Whether you love wine and your partner loves beer or vice versa, or you both love both, we’re beer for you. Oops. I mean, we’re here for you.
Still reading after that joke? Okay, good. We have our most robust menu yet with about 14 wines on our tasting menu and 10 brews on tap. You’re sure to find something to please your and your partner’s palate. Or maybe something new you’ve never tried before – that’s the fun about tasting!
We’ve put together an assortment of activities surrounding Valentine’s Day for you to find a way to celebrate.
1. Couples Painting and Tasting Class – Thursday, February 9th
This class will be held in our tasting room so we have plenty of space to taste and paint. We’ve partnered with Unearthed Arts to bring you a special night of painting and tasting. You and your significant other will each paint your own unique, yet compatible piece. Each painting will be slightly different, but when hung together will make the perfect match! Create something special together for Valentine’s Day. Need a little liquid inspiration? Not to worry, each participant will get a wine tasting or beer flight (no, you don’t have to choose the same as your partner) with their ticket price. Class also includes all painting supplies, art instruction from Unearthed Arts, and special coupons toward wine bottles or growlers to take home that day. Tasting Room opens at 6pm. Art instruction begins at 7pm. Sign up HERE.
2. Luxury Seated Wine Tastings in the Barrel Room – February 11th and 12th
This is the Cadillac of wine tastings. We have a spot reserved for you and a guest in our intimately designed barrel room for a seated and indepth tasting of our finest wines with one of our certified wine stewards. Guests will receive 2 oz. pours of a selection of our wines and will learn more about the Schram story and history, wine-making process, taste an in-process wine, learn about grapes used in the winemaking process, tasting techniques, and most importantly have some fun in the process. A small food pairing will also be provided to taste with wines. Wine bottle specials will be available to guests at the commencement of the tasting. Seating is limited — reservations are required! $25 per person for this special tasting event. Tasting take place at 1pm, 3pm, and 5pm on Saturday and 1pm and 3pm on Sunday.

3. Jazz in the Tasting Room and Food Truck – February 11th and 12th
Looking for a more casual way to celebrate? Our tasting room will be open business as usual on Saturday and Sunday the 11th and 12th. Wine tastings, beer flights, or wine or beer by the glass is available. We are welcoming back Emily Davis and Robert Bell, gypsy jazz guitarist to the tasting room for a second year in a row! This incredible duo will be performing Saturday 2-5pm and Sunday 1-4pm. You can choose to do the Luxury Seated Tasting and still enjoy time in the main tasting room before or after. Or, just enjoy the whatever you wish in the tasting room if that’s more your speed. Sandy’s Grill Food Truck will be on-site both days serving up some delicious eats.
4. Winter Wine Dinner – Thursday, February 16th
An evening for those looking for a one-of-a-kind dinner event! Experience our wines in our tasting room in a way you never have before – with an amazing meal planned to complement our wine. We have partnered with Chuckwagon Catering to prepare a gourmet meal to pair with a selection of our wines.

This will be a seated and served meal in our tasting room. 4 wines in generous pours will be served with each plate. Guests will have the opportunity to hear from the winemaker on the wines and the chef to understand the decision behind each pairing. While this dinner will highlight our wines, beer by the pint or flight will also be available for purchase during the evening! Dinner served at 6:30pm.
