4 wines paired with 4 chocolates, in our case, 4 truffles. We loved learning how the chocolate changed the taste of the wine! One pairing didn't work for me, but that's part of learning. The only thing that kept my review from being 5 star was...continued

The chocolate/wine shoppe is a little off the beaten path in
Newcastle, but once you stop, you will be stopping again.
The pairing was fun and the server was informative without
being stuffy.
There was no pressure to buy. The product was...continued

We really enjoyed our wine and chocolate pairings. They were excellent. We learned a lot in a pleasant atmosphere. Great value for both the wines and chocolates. We will return and recommend to others.

Five friends joined me for this and we had a great time. Some people liked all the pairings, some didn't, but all agreed it was a fun opportunity to taste and talk with friends. Most of us purchased products after the tasting.

Could it get any better? Wine AND Chocolate?? The shop owner is one of the most personable individuals I have ever met. She truly made me feel like I was a special friend. Not only was the wine delicious and the chocolate to die for but the...continued

Cute cafe/restaurant and a great date idea. Overall experience was okay, hard to really taste the 'notes' and 'silkiness' of the wine and chocolates.

It was very simple as parings go, but the trip was worth it just to enjoy the custom Chocolates made by the sister company. Plus they have great coffee. It is a very cool local hangout.

The staff at Sweet Decadence were a disappointment. At least the owner was gracious enough to inquire at the end of the evening and give us vouchers for 4 free seatings. I won't be giving them a second shot, but will see if adventurous friends...continued

It was a great pairing, great wine, great services, great chocolate! The person doing the tasting was very knowledgeable. It just took a bit of time in between the pairings. We were there for a bit over an hour to taste 5 wines/chocolates.
