Please join us Sunday November 10th 2019 at 3:00 PM for a luscious and enlightening Chocolate and Wine Tasting.

Pastry Chef and Artisanal Confectioner Leslie Hollander of Sugar Up, Sugar! will be joining our head sommelier, Alex Bardsley, this afternoon to present for your pleasure, three flights of wine and truffle pairings.

Sugar Up, Sugar! is a small local pastry business originating in Great Falls Virginia. Leslie Hollander is the Pastry Specialist/Owner and known for her creative flavor combinations.  Leslie creates each chocolate from scratch, made from quality ingredients and chef tested recipes.

Each wine flight will consist of two wines, and each wine will be paired with two specially created truffles. (6 wines sampled and 12 unique truffles). Alex will introduce each wine, and together he and Leslie will discuss how the chocolate confections and the wines play off each other in an “oh so” decadent way!

The tasting will be preceded by a meet and greet reception with Chef Jacques’ tasty hors  d’oeuvres and a glass of crisp Crémant d’Alsace. Beautiful boxes of Leslie’s delectable assorted truffles and Alex’s wines sampled today will be available for purchase at a very special price for all your home Chocolate and Wine parties.
