Did you know, both cocoa beans and wine are fermented with the very same type of yeast? It’s no wonder there are so many wine and chocolate lovers!

We strongly suggest pairing our Ritual Chocolates with one of our tasty wines the next time you’re in the neighborhood.  Find out which goes along best with your favorite wine below. As with all wine and food pairing suggestions, these tips should only be used as guidelines. It is important to do your own experimenting since palates respond differently.

And here’s our family, friends and a few of our suppliers enjoying a preview of some of the delicious morsels we will be serving up to all of you very soon! We had wine from the Grassroot Wines portfolio, empandas by Isa’s Cooking, and Colorado craft chocolates provided by Ritual Chocolates. Magnifico! Diane Narretta of Grassroots remarked to Isa:
