And what will you drink with it?
If you’re looking for a little recreation over the New Year’s holiday weekend, here’s my vote: A wine and chocolate pairing event at Crossing Vineyards and Winery in Washington Crossing, PA. I know I love dark chocolate with rich Cabernet Sauvignon, but have never gotten past that obvious match.
The “How Sweet It Is” workshop is a joint effort of the winery and Princeton’s Lindt Chocolates, and will be led by Crossing Vineyards’ sommelier Eric Cavatore and chocolate and confectionary aficionado Stacey Glynn-Brady, Lindt’s store manager. (Can you imagine managing a store full of chocolate? And I thought my apparel retail days were treacherous to the paycheck!)
Together, they will share tips on the finer points of producing chocolate and wine, what creates the variety of flavors in both, and how to enjoy the two together.
You need to pre-register for this one ($35 includes wine and chocolate), so call 215-493-6500, ext. 19 or visit www.crossingvineyards.com. Cheers! And Bon Appetit!
