Four wine parings with various chocolate truffles. Once each wine and chocolate paring is introduced, the host (Cheryl), gave our group of 3 pleanty of time to enjoy both the chocolate and wine without any feeling of being rushed.

This is a sweet little place with a few tables, lots of beautifully hand-dipped chocolate, nice wines, and knowledgeable staff.
We were told that they have chocolate classes too!

Very tasty chocolates with some interesting wine pairings. It was a lot of fun. Chocolates were very good, but expensive. Wine was reasonably priced. Recommended.
