Posted: Updated:

Kokopelli Winery and Bistros are saluting Love in America, February 12th-14th. With a Days of Wine & Roses festival that will include: Home-style French food, live romantic music all weekend, complimentary sparkling wine tasting, a wine maker’s dinner nightly Friday through Sunday evenings and Brunch on Sunday from 10AM-2PM.

Dennis Minchella, Kokopelli’s owner, learned to cook French style dishes while working several years in New Orleans. Minchella stated “Our menu for the weekend skews to a French format, since the French are known for their devotion to food and love.” Each night a five-course winemaker’s dinner will be offered along with wines of the Southwest that perfectly compliment each course and dinner will conclude with a champagne toast.  Whether you enjoy the French cheese artisan nosh, Crab Bisque soup, Beef Forestierre, Cordon Bleu Pasta, Coq Au Vin, or any of our other dinner offerings you will find them special. The wine maker’s dinner is offered at 5pm each night and will cost $60 per person, regular menu will also be available.

We will also be featuring a Valentine’s Day Jazz Brunch from 10AM-2PM in both restaurants at only $24.95 for adults and $9.95 for children under 12. The brunch includes breakfast dishes, entrees and side items, soup and salad bar, plus our dessert sampler bar. All dates will receive a sample of one of our sparkling wines and of course we will have Kokopelli’s award winning wines available all day.
