Wine & Chocolate Pairing

This past weekend, to celebrate a friend's birthday, a few of us girls got all dressed up for a wine and chocolate tasting/pairing.
Imagine the fun we had...chocolate + wine together= heaven.
It was an evening of using all our senses. We learned a lot about wines and chocolates by looking, tasting, smelling and touching.

How the evening started out:
We had 10 different wines and chocolates to taste. Each of us were given a sheet to record what we thought about the aroma, flavor, appearance and overall impression of the wines and chocolates. The table was set up with wines and chocolates (identity hidden), a glass for each of us, coffee beans to clear our noses,water to clean our mouths and glasses after each wine we tasted. At the end of the evening, after tasting each wine and chocolate individually or paired, we then had the big reveal. We had some interesting pairings...some not so great together, but an overall fabulous experience.
Do you like wine and chocolate? Consider this for a low key bachelorette party or just a regular girl's night out.
