Wine and chocolate tasting activities are offered for open groups only in Spanish. If you are interested in doing this activity in English should book it as a private group. Min 8 people.
In our Wine and chocolate tasting we taste four wines and four chocolates (solid) from different grape and cocoa varieties. We will learn their attributes and play with its 16 combinations.
500 years ago the Aztecs met Hernán Cortes. He brought wine. Cortes did not traveled there precisely for that, but the Aztecs called this drink “Tlapaloctli, water that paints. Cortes also became fascinated with thick foamed beverage served at Moctezuma ceremonies in hundreds of gold bowls. It was called “Xocolatl”, “Who drinks it – he wrote – can walk all day without getting tired or taking any food.”
And while it is true that Cortés was maybe more impressed by the hundreds of bowls of gold than what was inside, the true is that ordered to plant vines in Mexico and brought cocoa to Spain to invite some Chocolates to Carlos I.
Thus was born the fluid exchange of the two substances most seductive, exciting and yes, addictive, that the West has known.
And yet we are now living separately without reason. Different times, different formats but different flavors?
Bury your prejudices. No sweet wines or candy bars used.
