Chocolate & Wine Tasting at Tower Club at Tysons, 2/19

Wharton Club members & guests are invited to
sample their "just desserts," made with chocolate and paired wines
This evening promises to be a great treat for those with a spirit of adventure

Please join us at the Tower Club for their Wine Society's monthly wine tasting.

In February, the spotlight is on combining two favorite of gourmets and gourmands alike, fine wines and varied chocolate-flavored delicacies. We hope you can join us.

What: Some say it cannot be done, pairing wine with chocolate. But if you have the right wine to complement the right chocolate, it can be a match made in heaven! Join us as we take on the challenge and taste different chocolate-infused dishes paired with wines.

Invite your friends, colleagues, clients and family (only those of legal age, of course!) for this extremely popular event. It should fill fast - almost as quickly as the glasses of wine being poured or the feasting by chocoholics on the evening of the 19th.
