Aphrodisiac Wine & Dessert Pairing Tour
Raleigh "Aphrodisiac Wine & Dessert Pairing" Tour.
Life is short, EAT desert first! 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 gourmet bakery at a local thriving upstart in the ultra-rich experience of specialty desert bakers in Raleigh! A slice of heaven (pie) with a paired desert wine. Oh my goodness! Meet the baker herself and ask a question or two. Take home her "pearls of wisdom" to enjoy and entertain.
Next we land at the "Best Wine Bar in Raleigh". With a selection of over 350 wines and the largest South American selection in the US! But the "Picadas," small plates designed to pair with those wines (all of which are available by the glass), are equally worthy of a visit.
On the next leg of this tour, a European café where people go to become intoxicated by exquisiteness, richness, and taste. The magic arises from choosing top-quality raw ingredients.
Finally, we take a bean to bar chocolate maker tour (self-guided), producing unique and interesting chocolates with attention and care. Speak with the Chocolate maker; learn the fascinations of how fine hand crafted chocolates are made. Then have a generous sample of what has been made that day. Yum! You even get to take home a personal size bar.
Oh, did we forget an amazing wine paring to be experienced at the Chocolate Factory you will not forget this 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.
