Your Port In A Storm for Valentine's Day
Napa Valley confectioner Penelope Orsini makes chocolate truffles in exotic flavors from yuzu to coconut. For Valentine’s Day, she teams up with Yorkville Highlands winemaker Karen Meyer to create gift packs of port-infused chocolate truffles and Meyer Family Cellars Port.
To order visit: Meyer Family Cellars online store.
Both working moms met their husbands in the line of duty. Australia-born Karen Meyer met husband Matt while interning at an Oregon winery. Penelope met chef husband Dominic in the restaurant world. Today, Karen and Penelope have their young offspring nearby as they work. Karen says daughter Sidney supervised her first crush last year and Penelope is pretty sure son Giovanni has strong opinions about chocolate.
