Stone Hill Winery always delivers a great product for visitors to the Hermann Missouri area and their entry for the 2014 Chocolate Wine Trail was no different. This year they offered Ceyenne Brownies paired with their Concord wine. Each bite of the brownie was infused with a slight tinge of heat, which was welcomed considering the chilled weather outside. When paired with the Concord each bite offered a great spicy and fruity sensation. If you tried this treat from Stone Hill Winery, let us know your thoughts in the comments.
