Chocolate and Wine Matching Experience
Chocolate and Wine pairing workshop with davenport's chocolates - local producers of artisan chocolates developed with a fusion of tradition and creativity by classically trained chocolatier Jane Williams
Do you love chocolate? Do you love wine? If the answer to either of those questions is yes then book this delicious tasting. Think wine can't go with chocolate? Think again.
The key to enjoying wine with chocolate is to match the right wine with the right style of chocolate. There are many amazing styles of wine that can stand up to dark chocolate and a few to accompany milk chocolate as well!
Whether you want to serve wine with a chocolate dessert or just want to know how you can treat yourself during a quiet night in, this is the tasting where we discover what really works. We'll sample 7 exciting wines alongside handmade artisan chocolate from one of the region's leading chocolatiers davenport's chocolates, incuding white, milk chocolates, flavoured and dark chocolates with varying intensities of flavour depending where the cocoa beans were harvested and how the chocolate was made. We'll then guide you through the sampling encouraging you to vote to decide which combinations work best:
In this exciting tasting we will be experimenting with a range of different wine and chocolate combinations including for example;
White chocolate with Riesling
Mocha chocolate with Malbec
Dark chocolate with Port
Honey and Cinnamon chocolate with Sauternes
