MORRISVILLE, NC, January 24, 2011:  Tobacco Road Tours (TRT), the Triangle areas only daily guided tour service introduces the "Aphrodisiac Wine & Dessert Pairing" Tour.

Life is short, EAT desert first! It's that time of year again when the colors change from holiday green to Valentine's Day red. The Aphrodisiac Wine & Dessert Pairing Tour has been created & designed for guests seeking an exceptional tasting, educational and FUN experience. We discovered and sourced the absolute best that Raleigh has to offer regarding chocolates, deserts, wines and atmosphere.

Our first stop is a European cafĂ© where people go to become intoxicated by exquisiteness, richness, and taste.  The magic arises from choosing top-quality raw ingredients. Next we experience an Artisan chocolate maker, producing unique and interesting chocolates with attention and care. Finally, we land at the largest independent wine shop in North Carolina with over 2000 wine in stock and a very comfortable wine tasting bar to wrap up your tour experience.

Let's face it wine and food paring can be a challenging experience. What about desert, chocolate & wine pairing? On this decadent, entertaining and highly educational tour you will meet chefs, wine experts and the makers of fine deserts & chocolates in Raleigh NC who have paired a divine assortment of goodies for you. Learn wine/desert paring secrets and standards.  Sample, taste and compare various professionally paired selections. Create a list, as this experience becomes a journey, a starting place for your personal desert & wine pairing path.

The Aphrodisiac Wine & Dessert Pairing Tour is a limited engagement event on Saturday & Sunday February 12th & 13th, 2011. Tour meets at 2603 Glenwood Avenue, Suite 123, Raleigh, NC 27608 (Hereghty's).

Tour starts 2:00 PM (please arrive 10 minutes prior to start time)and ends at approximately 4:30 PM. Park in the shopping center. Advanced reservations & ticket purchase required.

Managing partner Brad Kennedy states: "I am personally thrilled to have the opportunity to work with some of Raleigh's most exclusive desert, chocolate and wine experts to craft a uniquely special tour. With three stops including an exquisite generous sampling of tastes, sensations and wines blended with a smattering of Raleigh history, architecture and stories, the 2.5 hours flies by. Our motto certainly applies here: the purpose of FUN is; to have SOME, come join US!".
