Wine a little: Wine & Chocolate virtual pairing experience August 29



Warm spices, caramel notes, or fruit-forward aromas – wines provide a special ‘nose’ that translates directly to flavors that elevate our palate.

Delysia Chocolatier is pleased to announce the launch of its DELIGHT: Immersive Chocolate Experiences with a night of wine and chocolate pairing in honor of National Red Wine Day (August 29th).

Cited as the first chocolatier in Texas to handcraft award-winning chocolates incorporating the fruit-forward flavors of wine, Delysia Chocolatier’s focus for our Wine and Chocolate virtual chocolate tasting is to enhance an already unique chocolate experience with a perfectly curated list of delectable wines for an elevated experience. Our Owner and Chocolatier, Nicole Patel, has been a featured speaker at The Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, educating on the proper way to savor wine and chocolate together. Named 2020’s Best Chocolatier in the Americas, Nicole Patel will guide participants through pairing wines with a selection of chocolate truffles, how to properly taste chocolate, and techniques for savoring wine and chocolate together in this exclusive tasting experience.

Relish in the robust flavors of our Espresso cherry chocolate truffle where satisfying dark chocolate gets intensified with the bold style of espresso and earthy warm essences of cherry, tobacco, and vanilla coming from a full-bodied Spanish Tempranillo. Sample the delightful berry pop of fresh strawberries elevated at the center of our Sparkling ruby chocolate truffle. Luscious ruby chocolate presents flavors of berries and balances with the pleasant citrus and red fruits that arise from the Rosé wine. Discover the perfect wine pairings to each of Delysia Chocolatier’s unique truffles in our Wine and chocolate virtual chocolate tasting “Wine-a-little.”

Broaden your culinary palate as you sample uniquely handcrafted chocolates at Delysia’s SAVOR: Chocolate Tasting Experience. Indulge in 4 chocolate truffles from a set menu personally curated by our Owner and Chocolatier, Chef Nicole Patel.

Enjoy the convenience of chocolate shipped right to your front door with Delysia Chocolatier’s unique Wine and chocolate virtual chocolate tasting pairing rich wines and indulgent chocolates truffles for a unique pairing experience.

Tickets must be purchased by Tuesday evening if shipping within Texas. Please order by Sunday evening if shipping to an address outside of Texas. This will allow us ample time to ship the chocolates to your doorstep. If ordered afterward, please select expedited shipping at checkout or contact us for guidance.

Tickets to our virtual tastings can be purchased as soon as events become available online, in some cases weeks in advance. We will ship the chocolates once they are made, closer to the tasting date. Tickets to multiple virtual tastings can be purchased at the same time, as long as those tastings are no more than 2 weeks apart. If the virtual tastings are more than two weeks apart, please place separate orders as your order will need to ship separately, as the chocolates are made fresh for each tasting.

Once the chocolates arrive, please remove them from the shipping box immediately, as they may have been shipped on ice. Store the chocolates in your refrigerator or a cool dry place until the tasting, bringing them to room temperature at least 30 minutes before the virtual experience.

Instructions and the conference link will be emailed to you 24 hours before your tasting. PLEASE ENSURE that the participant’s email is registered for our newsletter (link in the footer of our website) and the email address is added to your contact list. The link to the virtual tasting is sent via Mailchimp.

Our virtual chocolate pairing experience will last 75 minutes, followed by a 15 minute Q&A session. Our tastings are interactive, with attendee engagement and participation throughout the experience. If you have questions throughout the tasting, either type them on the screen or unmute to ask your question, as we love answering them real-time throughout the experience.

With the ongoing crisis, our Tasting Room & Chocolate Boutique is currently closed to the public. Please join us for one of our virtual chocolate tastings or shop online. Our full product line of handcrafted chocolates are available online, shipped directly to your doorstep with FedEx.
