“Thank you!” and “Cheers!” to everyone who visited our Wine and Chocolate event on February 10.
We had a great time while investigating how chocolate influences the taste of certain wines. Our neighbors lent a hand; The Chocolate Mill supplied the excellent 58% Belgian chocolate bits, and Samantha’s Cafe prepared the divine salmon mousse appetizers and pastry assortment.
Our colleagues at Lisa’s Wine Intro have organized their own observations into a set of handy blog posts. Have a look and use Lisa’s notes for more home “Do It Yourself” wine and chocolate projects.

We just opened up a bottle of Red Newt – Circle Riesling today. We have been friends with Red Newt winery ever since we first opened our store in May 2000. See this video to meet our friend, winery owner Dave Whiting … he made the wine.
Red Newt is more than a winery. Its Bistro has become the center of the Finger Lakes Local Food community. Enjoy this video of their Circle Riesling Sorbet recipe, and stop by UnCorked to try a sip before it’s gone.
