Join our food pairing event to find out how wine and chocolate fit together or complement each other in sensory aspects. Does milk chocolate go better with white wine or should you always chose dark chocolate for red wine? Together with our graduates we want to taste different wines and match them with different kinds of chocolate to round off your well-deserved graduation in these difficult times with a special sensory experience.

For the tasting, your graduation package includes the following wines from HGU's campus winery and chocolate from Schell Schokoladen Manufaktur:

WINES, RECOMMENDED TEMPERATURE

  • 2019 Villa Monrepos Riesling dry - approx. 10 - 12°C (recommended)
  • 2019 Villa Monrepos Frühburgunder dry - approx. 17 - 20°C (recommended)

CHOCOLATE, TYPE

  • Umami Papua - whole milk chocolate
  • Saint Domingue - dark chocolate
