This January and February, Chester County’s Chaddsford Winery will host a series of wine, cheese, and chocolate pairing classes celebrating the Pennsylvania region’s finest local food and drink.
The classes will focus on pairing techniques as well as helping guests to understand the importance of where food and wine are sourced from and how that defines their flavor characteristics.
In January, the winery will hold Wine and Cheese Pairing Classes featuring their acclaimed wines and domestic cheeses, most sourced from creameries located in Pennsylvania and nearby states. Guests can expect to sample five delicious regional cheeses and six wines. The cost is $20 per person.
Wine and Cheese classes will be held at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, January 15th, 22nd and 29th at Chaddsford Winery.
In February, they will offer Wine and Chocolate Pairing Classes, featuring confections from Éclat Chocolate in West Chester, a three-time Best of Philly winner. Guests can expect world-class chocolates ranging in flavor from Aleppo Pepper and Mollydooker Shiraz to Champagne and Hazelnut Truffles, and a selection of six wines. The cost is $25 per person.
Wine and Chocolate classes will be held at 1 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. on every Saturday and Sunday in February.
You can reserve a spot online.
