What a better way to spend a Saturday night than being surrounded by a vineyard, tasting Great Bear wines and exploring the world of chocolate! On Saturday, February 15, we are offering our wine and chocolate tasting. This was a hugely popular and sellout event in 2019 and so we thought Valentine’s weekend would be the perfect time to pair chocolate and wine again.
During the evening, we will have fun exploring where cacao is grown and learning how the “food of the gods” is magically turned into chocolate from our Willy Wonka, Kevin, a nineteen year veteran in the industry. Next, we will learn how to taste chocolate like a pro, and then, put our taste buds to work by tasting five selected red wines, each paired with five different chocolates. We will hear about the individual wines and chocolates and experience what makes each pairing special.
After the chocolate and wine tasting, there will be some informal time with a little more wine, plus cheese and crackers…and/or more chocolate if you prefer!
Come join us!
