Dorothy Parker once said, “Take care of the luxuries and the necessities will take care of themselves.” With that way of life in mind, Beauty Champagne & Sugar Boutique joins with Sommelier Andrew Stover for a Wine & Chocolate Tasting on September 18 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Four wines pair with four chocolates for $30 (includes gratuity & tax).
The chocolates are from Ethereal Confections, a women-owned craft bean-to-bar confectionery in historic Woodstock Square in Illinois. Only ethically-sourced, heirloom, organic cacao us used. All chocolates are dairy, soy and gluten free, as well as vegan and kosher. They’re not only delicious, but they’re good for you and for the world!
