For the Love of Chocolate and Wine

Do you love chocolate? Do you love wine? Separately, they are great, but together, they are sublime and indulgent. (And, keep it under your hat, but many combinations are even healthy for you.) Come celebrate these incredible gifts of nature at a new event sponsored by the Colonial Beach Foundation (not unintentionally timed just before Valentine’s Day). Learn the complexities of pairing wine and chocolate. Each has its own subtleties and flavor notes that need to be considered to maximize the flavor in a pairing. The event will be hosted by Eric Nelson — known now as a local artist and realtor with Coldwell Banker Elite, but in his most recent past life chapter, he was the owner and chocolatier at Artfully Chocolate–a small chain of businesses that were located in Alexandria and D.C. He hosted these chocolate/wine pairing events twice monthly for years, so he has extensive knowledge about fine chocolate and fine wine and what to look for in pairing the two. At this event, he will share his enthusiasm and knowledge with you and give you tips so that you can host chocolate/wine pairings at home to impress your family and friends.
