If you love wine and fine handcrafted chocolate, you'll love our tasting group!

Please note that this group is not just about meeting at places that have chocolate and wine.  It’s an ongoing interactive decadent learning adventure that will take place along with the ability to socialize and meet others that share the same interest.

At each group meeting, a tasting is led by the two organizers of this group and feature a synchronized selection of extraordinary fine wines and artisan chocolates intended to stimulate your imagination and taste buds. The wines and chocolates are deliberately chosen for their complementary and contrasting aromas and flavors to create a crazy-perfect pairing. It's sweet, literally!

Not all wine goes with chocolate so you'll learn about what makes the best match from people who know.  You'll be able to try many different types of wine from all over the world and build your knowledge and palate for fine artisan chocolate.  You'll not want Hershey's after this!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
