Wine and Chocolate Tasting at Waterford Wine Estate
From its inception, Waterford was determined to concentrate not just what is in their bottles, but what is outside of them as well. This means that a visit to Waterford is a true experience, with safari truck rides into the vineyards and a unique chocolate pairing. Waterford was the first to create their own chocolates in order to create a master class in wine and chocolate pairing. This is a must-do activity for any visitor to the area.
In February 2013, my husband Michael and I set off on an 8-month trip around the world. Here’s one of the many highlights of our adventure…
I love wine and I love chocolate, but I hadn’t thought of trying the two together. I’m glad Waterford Estate’s co-founder Kevin Arnold thought of it ten years ago. The outdoor patio at Waterford is a great place to relax and taste South African wines and learn from the friendly staff. The wine and chocolate tasting includes three combinations. All were yummy; but my favorite was the Family Reserve Heatherleigh (muscat / semillon blend) with rose geranium milk chocolate.
