Join us after work to “wine down” on Wednesday, August 7th from 5pm-7pm at lovely Western Reserve Wines in Solon. We’ll be featuring 6 different wines that go specifically with chocolate! Chat with Kathi, the owner of WRW about all things wine and Amanda, Chef/Owner of Lilly about all things chocolate! Obviously, a match made in heaven.
Amanda and husband Josh opened Lilly Chocolates & Confections in 2008 in Tremont, specializing in handmade truffles, chocolate bars, confections and frozen treats! They have been been featured in Cleveland Magazine, Food & Wine, USA Today & The New York Times. Last year the store and family relocated to the Old Brooklyn neighborhood. We carry a selection of her delicious chocolates and it’s hard to keep them on the shelf!
Our line up will include the following delicious wines. Some are sweet, some are dry. Expand your palate!
-Juve Y Camp Brut Pinot Noir Cava-
Ripe cherry, plum and strawberry notes with a zippy tang of a ruby red grapefruit on the finish.
-Elio Perrone Sourgal Moscato D’ Asti DOCG–
White peach, orchard fruit and flowers abound in this vivid, beautifully made moscato.
-Casteggio Sangue di Guida-
Deep cherry & plum notes, with just a touch of petulance make this an easy drinker.
-Adesso Cagnina di Romagna-
Grapey, jammy smooth as silk and unctuously sweet, this is a wine that’s easy to fall in love with ‘adesso.
-Bonny Doon Le Pousser Syrah-
Wild plums, blackberries and spice dominate with a peppy persistent finish.
-Ramos Pinto Tawny Port-
Nutty, with notes of dried fruits. Chocolate’s BFF.
What are the chocolate pairings, you ask? It’s a SURPRISE.
The flight of wines with the chocolate pairings will be $15 at the door. Amanda will also be bringing some of her most popular chocolate items to sell and will happily help you pair her items with Kathi’s expertly curated selection of wines.
Please join us for this tasty, educational, fun event. Reservations are not required, but please call if you plan to bring a group.
