What you'll do

A wine tasting with a rich chocolate twist awaits in this pairing experience with Clifton Wine School. Come along to try a delicious selection of wines, each with its own specially chosen artisan chocolate pairing.

During your two hour experience in a private room at Hotel du Vin, you’ll taste six different wines, usually a selection of reds and sweet wines. These are each matched perfectly with chocolate sourced from local chocolatiers, including anything from dark to high quality milk chocolate, truffles and even rich chocolate cake.

You’ll be hosted for the evening by either the owner of Clifton Wine School, Ruth, who has been teaching the intricacies of wine for the last 10 years, or Jess, who specialises in food and wine pairing. They’ll talk you through each wine and its match, helping you discover more about your own wine tastes.
