Join the Tastings and Events Team alongside chocolate experts the Cocoa Runners as they explore two of life’s greatest pleasures – chocolate and wine.

Akesson’s & Pink Pepper 75%
Herencia Esmerelda’s Pure Dark 70%
Original Beans Virunga 70%
Friis Holm O’Payo Milk 50%
Friis Holm Dark Milk 65%
Original Beans Yuna 37% (white)

In this, our first online chocolate masterclass, we’ll take members through the best way to taste chocolate as well as a history of its production and traditions. We’ll then navigate through the delicious pairings, debating flavours and finding our favourite matches.
We hope you will join us, ideally with the Cocoa Runners Tasting pack and a couple of the recommended bottles, but if you have some similar chocolates and wines of your own, you’re welcome to take part.
