Chocolate & Wine Pairing (Hitchin)
Imagine two of your favourite things in one evening - Chocolate and Wine! You are allowed to be decadent sometimes.
If you think wine can't go with chocolate then think again - 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 over the holiday season, or just want to treat yourself during a quiet night in, this is the tasting where we discover what really works.
We'll sample seven exciting wines alongside chocolate from leading and specialist suppliers. Along the way we’ll try truffles, milk chocolates and dark chocolates with varying intensities of flavour, depending where the cocoa beans were harvested and how the chocolate was made. And, to cap it off, we'll finish with home made brownies or a slice of chocolate cake.
We'll guide you through the sampling and decide which combinations work best. Wines will include fortified styles from southern France such as Rivesaltes, matured in a special way adding to its flavour. We'll also try PX from Spain, made from grapes dried in the blazing sun on straw mats, a luscious late harvest Riesling and an amazing Tawny Port.
This wine tasting evening also makes a great gift voucher idea for only £27.50
All tastings include at least seven wines, sourced locally so you can find them if you like them, tasting notes, a tutored presentation and use of professional ISO tasting glasses.
