Plush hearts and poetry are nice enough, but this party celebrates the hedonistic, naughty side of the holiday. Chocolate. Wine. Seems like a perfect pairing. A power couple, even. But, each can be independently delicious. And, chocolate can be tricky to match. It often likes to stand alone. Wine, though, can be persistent and adventurous in the pairing, with a decadent, delicious flavor sensation. Thus, we will pair the deepest, darkest of chocolate with an array of harmonious wine selections. Sticky and sweet, spicy and raw. We are simply obsessed!
City Winery will pair up with Pastry Chef, Stacie Kruse, and Beverage Director, Rebekah Mahru, to create a sensory experience. Aromas, textures, spice and wine! Bring an adventurous palate and a handful of friends! Join us for a casual, walk around tasting of exoctic chocolate desserts and wild wines. Mingle with our City Winery Sommeliers, nibble, sip and swirl...we’ll hit your sweet spot. Intense, surprising, and unusual pairings are to be expected. Pairings will include 8 decadent chocolate creations by our Pastry Chef and 9 wines. Skip the V-day dinner and come straight for dessert!
New this year: Rémy Martin Cognac will provide an additional tasting station with a Cognac specialist to educate on the subtleties of chocolate and cognac pairing.
