Wine, Food And Chocolate Matching Evening

Could life get any better?

Published on September 4th 2013.


Wine, Food And Chocolate Matching Evening

WINE and chocolate is a pairing usually reserved for Friday nights in with a box-set and a broken heart. But this event at The Albert Square Chop House is set to prove that our two favourite things can combine perfectly, and when they do, the experience is sublime.

Durbanville Hills wine is blended with high quality chocolate from the start to ensure that the two flavours complement each other

Featuring South Africa's Durbanville Hills wines, the evening includes fine wines matched with five courses of superb Chop House food – culminating in a 'Chocolate and Wine Flight Experience'.

The event will take place in the beautiful Memorial Hall suite at The Albert Square Chop House.
