IN a first for the Cape winelands, Durbanville Hills has combined its love for wine and chocolate in creating a light-hearted treat: a hot chocolate and wine tasting. From now until the end of September, the winery will be offering a limited-edition hot chocolate wine tasting of four red wines each paired with four different hand-crafted chocolate bombs, to add to steaming milk.
The tasting forms part of the winery’s creative exploration of flavours by pairing its cool climate wines with interesting foods to enrich the appreciation of their award-winning wines. The silky-smooth indulgence and the depth the wine brings to the hot chocolate, make this an unmissable experience.
- Cabernet Sauvignon with Coffee and Hazelnut
- Merlot with Dark Chocolate Mint
- Pinotage with Dark Chocolate Cherry and Turkish Delight
- Shiraz with Cinnamon and Nutmeg
Each tasting includes four wines, four chocolate bombs, and hot milk to prepare your own. The bomb, when added to the warm milk, will release the chocolate and individual flavours once melted. How much wine to add would be a personal preference but a few dashes at the start will reveal the perfect balance of wine and hot chocolate!
