Valentine’s Day Surprise

14 Feb

It came just in time, a Chocolate Lover’s Wine! And how timely, right on Valentine’s Day!  

Chocolate Shop Wine and Thirsty Girl have teamed up to put together a post Valentine’s Day twitter chat with Chocolate Shop’s winemaker himself, Hal Landvoight and GUESS WHAT, they have sent the Winepug 2 complimentary bottles to try.  Of course, I will be there tweeting about this wine for Chocolate Lover’s, since I’m a huge chocolate (and wine) fan! 

I just popped open a bottle, tried it with a fiancé baked Peanut Butter Valentine’s Day Cookie… tastes exactly like a Reese’s!  YUM! 

So, for those wine and chocolate lovers who want to explore this wine further, here are the details! And if you do tune in, I might be able to extend a discount to you all for you to purchase this lovely wine at Chocolate Shop’s online store!  

Now for the details of the tasting:
  • February 15, 2012
  • The tasting will start at 8 PM EST and end around 9 PM (sometimes we get a little carried away). 
  • The winemaker, Hal Landvoight will be on Twitter with the team from Chocolate shop to answer your questions too. 
  • Please use the Hashtag  #TGTaste for this event, and feel free to mention @ChocShopWine
