A Fun Date Night: 26th Annual Tahoe Chocolate & Wine Festival

Sparkling Champagne

Though summer is the season for wine tasting, there’s nothing like the warmth that comes from an autumn wine and chocolate tasting. The leaves have changed colors, the crispness of fall hangs in the air – it’s a season that beckons comfort foods. What’s more delicious and comforting than luxurious wine and chocolate?

For over 25 years the Tahoe Chocolate & Wine Festival has been one of the area’s high end culinary events to feature local wineries, chocolatiers and boutique food. For the cost of admission ($125 person) on November 8, from 5:30pm to 10pm at the Hyatt in Incline Village, guests will enjoy a wine walk–sampling wines hand selected from acclaimed California wine regions, such as Napa, Amador, and Paso Robles. Guests are then seated for a guided chocolate tasting from several of Lake Tahoe’s finest culinary chocolate artists.

Not only are guests drinking and eating to their delight, the event benefits an instrumental nonprofit in the Lake Tahoe area, Tahoe SAFE Alliance.  Tahoe SAFE Alliance is the only agency in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee that provides free programs and services to survivors of violence and abuse, and educates our youth and community members on violence prevention and healthy relationships.

In addition to the event leaving your belly full, there are raffle prizes, and a door entry prize (yes, it pays to just go!) where you could win 4 nights at Playa Viva Resort – a $2,000 value!

We can’t think of a better reason to taste wine and eat chocolate while at Lake Tahoe.
