Wine and chocolate: What could be better? Lone Oak Vineyard Estate, Lone Oak Vineyard Estate, 8400 Ann Arbor Rd., Grass Lake, Michigan, has scheduled a day of delicious wine and chocolate pairings on Sunday, December 2. You'll learn how chocolate is made and enjoy demonstrations by Mindo Chocolate Makers of Dexter, Michigan.
The session will feature a pairing fine estate grown wines with hand made chocolates from Mindo Chocolate
Makers. You'll sample several different Mindo chocolates with selected wines.
Mindo Chocolate Makers ferment, dry and roast the cocoa beans themselves at their place in Mindo, Ecuador. They ship the cocoa beans to Michigan and hand make the chocolate at their place in Dexter. They control the quality of their chocolate by following the process carefully from the moment the bean comes out of the pod.
Mindo makes their 77% and 67% chocolate with only three ingredients: their own cocoa liquor, their own cocoa butter and organic evaporated cane juice. No additives. It's pure, simple and delicious.
In addition to their solid chocolate bars, Mindo also offers other flavors by adding ingredients like espresso coffee beans, cherries, Celtic sea salt, candied orange peel, and hazelnuts, to name a few. They also make incredible cocoa powder, truffles and hot chocolate sticks.
The event is at 1:00 PM. Seating is limited and reservations are required. Call (517)522-8167 to reserve your time slot and seat. The cost is $10 per person.
All of the Mindo chocolates and Lone Oak wines will be available for purchase.
