“How to Throw Your Own Wine & Chocolate Party”
In the article, you’ll discover how to easily and elegantly share new chocolates and wines that your guests will love. I’ve included a list of suggested pairings as well as some ideas for additional nibbles for your guests to enjoy. I’ll also show you some simple tips to help your guests cleanse their palates between tastings to create an authentic—and fun—tasting experience.
I had a wonderful time working with the editor and photographer to put this article together. I hope you enjoy it!

If you’d like some help throwing a Chocolate & Wine Tasting Party of your own, I offer two options:
Done-for-You: I’ll come to your house and lead the tasting for you, sharing fun facts about each of the wines and its chocolate pairing, including why the unique flavors in each pair well together. I’ll engage you and your guests in sharing your observations, and I’ll offer trivia and stories to go along with the tasting to create a lively party atmosphere. The tasting portion of your party usually lasts about two hours. Once I leave, the party usually continues as you please—often with more wine and more appetizers!
Do-It-Yourself: If you’d prefer, I can help you conduct the tasting yourself by coaching you over the phone. I’ll provide ideas, menus, handouts and photos as well as the personal support you need to enjoy your own tasting as much as your guests do.
If you’re interested in discussing either of these two options, please feel free to drop me a line at deeann@UnleashYourInnerFoodie.com or 612-860-5961.
