Pairing wine and food properly is one of life's great pleasures, yet it is also one that many would-be foodies and wine aficionados assume is fraught with peril. Vinifera and Chocolations are in business not only to sell wine and chocolate, but also to help their customers make informed buying decisions. When the two shops' managers met during the this spring, these kindred spirits realized that their business philosophies meshed.
This is a golden age for wine and chocolate lovers: more wines and chocolates exist, from more countries and regions, in more styles and flavors, than at any other time in the history of the world. Many customers, however, relate that they do not feel confident in differentiating between good and bad wine or chocolates. Both stores believe very firmly that knowing how to taste and buy wine and chocolate like a professional is not as hard as people think. This wine and chocolate pairing class is designed to teach basic tasting methods to help reduce one’s fear surrounding wine and chocolate purchasing decisions.
The cost per person for the class is $35. Please call (914) 777-3600 or (914) 698-3802 to RSVP for the event.
