Book now

This event is SOLD OUT! Please contact us to join the waiting list, or for more information about upcoming Wine Lab Sundays,

Join us as we take a dive deep into the world of wine in a series of fun and informative monthly wine gatherings. We will feature three Foley Food & Wine Society partner wineries from across California exploring common themes among them.

On Sunday, February 12th, Sommelier Billie Rolla will lead a group of wine enthusiasts in “Chocolate & Wine: Perfect Match or a Bitter Relationship?” that includes hands-on experiments, small group conversation, and of course a Chocolate and Wine pairing!

Pairing wines with dessert is one of the greatest food and wine pairing challenges. Too much unbalanced sugar can make a wine taste bitter and sour. On top of it all, it can be difficult to tell if a wine is sweet or just fruity. But don’t give up on this relationship yet! In this lab, you will learn to confidently read the sweetness of a wine and impress your loved ones with your perfectly sweet pairing.

The cost of Wine Lab Sundays includes TWO (2) seats at the table, so bring a friend, a loved one, or just yourself and meet other fun wine enthusiasts. Absolutely no previous wine knowledge is necessary.

This experience includes one bottle each of the following wines for guests to take home:

2018 Foley Sonoma Winemakers Series Brut, Russian River Valley
2022 Firestone Riesling, Santa Ynez Valley
2017 Chateau St. Jean Cinq Cepages, Sonoma County
Also, a box of Jessica Foster’s Confections Truffles to recreate the experience at home.
