Chocolate Dipped Wine Bottles

Chocolate Dipped Wine Bottles

If you're like us, every Valentine's Day, or birthday, or anniversary, we try to find something unique, fun and romantic to give. When it comes to finding the right special-occasion gift, the challenge is not so much to make an impression but to make a memory. We think our chocolate wine bottles fare fantasically in this regard.

What you see above are three bottles of actual Nello Olivo wine. Each bottle is first wrapped in food-safe clear film, then dipped in rich gourmet chocolate and drizzled with chocolate of a contrasting color. Finally the whole thing is wrapped in cellophane and finished off with red and gold foil trim.

How do you eat it? Cleverly, there's a red ribbon beneath the chocolate that "unzips" it, making it fall away from the bottle in chunks. All that's left is to uncork the bottle and enjoy the wine and chocolate together. It's more than a unique gift, it's an experience that truly does make memories.

You can purchase the chocolate bottles at our tasting room or by phone 530-306-2034. They are made by Shari Fitzpatrick of "Shari's Berries" fame, so you know they're pretty darned great. The price is the price of the wine (several varieties are available) plus $20.
