EVERY FOURTH SATURDAY
Wine and Chocolate Pairing
What makes wine and chocolate such great companions and how does one find the best match of dark, spicy, and fruity chocolate with the plethora of sweet, dry, full bodied, and light wines? We’ll show you how similar the terroir, varieties, fermentation, and processing of delicious locally-made gourmet chocolate is with the full range of wine as we step through flights of both. We’ll diverge from the standard port & dark chocolate pairings to show how a nice Riesling can go well with a tangy dark chocolate and even Cabernet Sauvignon can blend smoothly with certain assertive chocolates. We will step you through some of the history of chocolate, how it's intersected with wine in the past, present, & future, while tasting some of the best vintage wines with Madre Chocolate's fine chocolate bars.
