Chocolate & Wine Pairing Party Ideas

For The LOVE of Chocolate & Wine: A Tasting with your Sweetheart is Sunday, Feb. 10 at AmRhein's Wine Cellars from 2 -4 pm.

Everyone knows that February is the month for chocolates with GALentine's Day on Feb. 13th and Valentine's Day on Feb. 14. Have you ever thought about a wine and chocolate pairing tasting party to celebrate? Red wines is the most popular pairing with chocolate and is the best rule of thumb but there is SO MUCH MORE you can so to design a more unique pairing

Any time of year is always right for hosting a chocolate and wine pairing party (although, a relaxed adult Halloween party or a fun date idea for Valentine's Day is also worth thinking about). Invite your guests to bring their favorite chocolate treats from local places in Roanoke like Baylee's Best Chocolates known for using Belgian chocolate. They make their own truffles, caramels, toffee--even their own marshmallow! Or if you want to venture out a little further, try Cocoa Mia in Floyd VA. They specialize in authentic, small-batch chocolate making. But more than that – they are a chocolate experience and offer more than just chocolates during your visit.

During the wine and chocolate pairing activity your guests will enjoy unique wine and chocolate pairings. And don't forget the printable tasting note card score sheet. The party should be casual and relaxed — serving chocolate on an assortment of wood platters, incorporating rustic textures and dimmed lights. Add a few chocolate colored candles a vase of roses and you’re all set.
