Description

Greetings Chocolate and Wine Lovers!

You are invited to spend a delightful afternoon celebrating the holiday season by sipping fabulous wine and discovering the amazing things you can do with chocolate. I’ll be your host and teacher for this very special event.

In this hands-on fun (vegan) artisan chocolate and wine pairing class (limit 10), you’ll make exquisite artisan chocolates using Valrhona dark chocolate from France with your choice of an incredible selection of organic ingredients. As you’re experimenting with chocolate, you’ll be treated to tastings of an array of amazing wines, the 2010 Muns Pinot Noir, the 2016 Rosé of Pinot Noir and the 2013 Estate Chardonnay, Santa Cruz Mountains from Silver Mountains Vineyards, which is nestled in the magical Santa Cruz mountains and certified organic since 1981.

Here are the fancy organic ingredients you’ll have to play with: culinary herbs, flowers (lavender included), candied orange peel, dried delicate fruits such as blueberry, cherries, freeze dried raspberry, chocolate covered espresso beans, toasted hazelnut, orange zest and fleur de sel. These amazing ingredients not only beautifully complement chocolate, but they are also perfect for making chocolate art!

You'll leave the class with a complimentary bottle of the wine of your choice from the lovely collection above, samples of your artistic chocolate creations, and a small bag of Provence organic culinary lavender.

Ribbon, raffia, a small holiday box and a label will also be provided in case you would like to beautifully package your exquisite chocolates as a holiday gift for someone special.

The class will be held at the magnificent Silver Mountain Vineyards, which is a 15-minute drive from downtown Los Gatos and a 30-minute drive from downtown Santa Cruz. If you would like to stretch out this excellent experience you will be most welcome to enjoy more wine tasting after the class, and meet Jerold O'Brien, the owner and winemaker at Silver Mountain Vineyards.

Since space is very limited for this popular class, early registration is highly encouraged. Take a moment now and think of 2 or 3 friends you would like to enjoy this experience with and invite them immediately. Believe me, they will love it.

I look forward to seeing you in class! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Inspired Testimonial: "Ellie gave us the most amazing culinary experience ever! She was impeccably organized and continually encouraged us to release our creative instincts. We made three types of chocolate delights with amazing organic ingredients: mini-cups, medallions and barks. The entire culinary experience could not have been better!! I recommend it for everyone looking for a delightfully extraordinary way to spend an afternoon in the Santa Cruz Mountains while creating artisan chocolate gifts for friends and family." ~ J.
