A few days ago, I had the opportunity to attend my first wine and chocolate tasting. As a man I don’t know much about chocolate except that it is tasty and I like to eat it. As for wine, I must be honest and say I didn’t know anything except, I don’t drink it. That all changed when I stepped into Gayle’s Chocolates and was introduced to a whole new way of eating chocolate.
Gayle’s Chocolates started 35 years ago with Gayle. She began making her own chocolate after her search for an intensely rich chocolate yielded no rewards. Her delicious chocolates began with one saucepan on her stove in Huntington Woods, MI. She continues to make her fabulous chocolates in Michigan. However,she outgrew her kitchen and has set up shop in Royal Oak.
During the event Gayle’s Chocolates were paired with different wine selections provided by Elie Wine Company (Birmingham, MI). Elie started his company 20 years ago after many years in the wine trade business. He features some of the best wines found in Spain and France and has traveled extensively to learn more about the wines and their history. He brings this information back home to Detroit to share.
Gayle’s Chocolates are not only tasty but they offer a whimsical side for creative gift giving. How does a 40 LB Chocolate Bunny sound? What woman would not want to receive a pair of chocolate shoes? Check out all the great confections available at Gayle’s Chocolates and then hop on over to Elie Wine Company to find what pairs best with your selections.
