San Diego CA— The traditional chocolate and wine duo get a facelift as The Wine Pub announces Vinho de Truffle: a port wine and dark chocolate truffle pairing to satisfy any sweet tooth. On March 10, Point Loma’s favorite dog-friendly wine bar teams up with local truffle expert, Chef Andrea Davis, for the least nutritious but most mouthwatering pairing in San DiegoOn Tuesday, March 10, indulge yourself with an exquisite evening of port wines and one-of-a-kind, hand-made chocolates from Andrea’s Truffles, including:
- St. Agur blue cheese and zinfandel truffle, featuring a creamy, cheddary blue cheese flavor with notes of zinfandel and topped with toasted pecans.
- Salted caramel and pecans truffle, featuring salt locally harvested in La Jolla, hand-made vanilla flavors and a unique tang to compliment any dessert wine.
- Port wine reduction truffle, featuring the sweet and condensed tastes of a port wine confined to dark chocolate walls of decadence.
“It’s common to pair truffles with beer in San Diego, but its never paired with dessert wine,” says Sandy Hanshaw, owner of The Wine Pub. “The saltiness of Andrea’s Truffles will break up the sweetness of the port’s for a melt-in-your-mouth pairing we’re looking forward to.”
Chef Andrea’s reputation for using whole ingredients to create off-the-wall truffles makes her a natural fit on The Wine Pub’s gourmet, modern menu. Davis regularly works with The Pub chef Malissa Sorsby to collaborate on innovative and decadent menu items that keep guests coming back for more.
For $20 attendees of Vinho de Truffle can sample two hand-crafted truffles and three ports, including Quintal de la Rosa Tawny Port, Warre’s Warrior Port and Malamado Malbec Port.
