Tehachapi residents and visitors, nearly 1,000 strong, enjoyed the 11th annual Valentine's Wine & Chocolate Tasting on Saturday night.

Four new businesses joined in the festivities and served wine samples, bringing this year's total to 25 wine sampling stops.

Sponsored by Main Street Tehachapi, many stops featured either a champagne sample or a red or white wine.

Again this year Main Street member and candy confectioner Linda Pettitt made 1,000 pieces of chocolate delights to go with the wine tasting.

“Valentine celebration, Tehachapi style,” as one visitor was overheard saying.
