The winery is at 29300 hwy 300, Little Italy Arkansas which is about 15 minutes west of Pinnacle Mountain State Park.

National German Chocolate Cake Day is dedicated to German chocolate cake. The first thing you should know about this cake is that it is not from Germany, nor does it have anything to do with Germany! It is named after Samuel German, who came up with a dark baking chocolate for Baker’s Chocolate Company in 1852, which was named Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate. Over a hundred years later, on June 3, 1957, Mrs. George Clay’s recipe for “German’s Chocolate Cake” appeared in The Dallas Morning News as the “Recipe of the Day”. This recipe used Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate, and General Foods, which owned Baker’s, disseminated the recipe to newspapers around the country. Soon after, the cake gained popularity all over the country, and the “‘s” was also dropped from the name “German’s”, simply making it German chocolate cake. The cake is a layered chocolate cake with a caramel topping with pecans and coconuts. Sometimes chocolate frosting is put around the sides and the circumference, and maraschino cherries may be put on top.

Hope to see everyone at the Winery this weekend.
