Wine & Chocolate Tasting Events
Divalicious Chocolate! offers chocolate and wine tasting where participants taste and pair gourmet chocolate and specialty wines.
Formal Chocolate & Wine Tasting: Each participant pairs four hand selected wines and six couverture chocolates from some of the world’s finest chocolate makers (i.e., El Rey, Valrhona, Guittard, etc.) and discusses their opinion of each pairing with Jackie and the rest of the group. Each participant gets a score sheet, flavor wheel and rating scale to write down his or her thoughts and reactions to each pairing. Palate cleansers are provided.
Running Time: A chocolate and wine pairing typically runs approximately one-and-a-half hours. The timing of the event can be modified as needed.
Chocolate and Wine Tasting Buffet: A chocolate and wine tasting buffet is set up with bottles of wine arranged with selections of chocolates to taste and pair. These are accompanied by signs that reference their background information and flavor notes.
The buffet can be moderated by a chocolate expert who guides participants through the tasting and answers their questions. Score sheets and/or tasting plates are provided for participants.
Chocolate and wine tastings can be modified to suit your event needs.
