Pairing Session: 7.00 - 8.30 pm

3033 232 Street
Langley, BC
Description Join us for an evening of networking and learning about Callebaut Single Origin Chocolates paired with Backyard Vineyards Wines. Barry Callebaut is the world's leading manufacturer of high-quality cocoa, chocolate and confectionery products. The Single Origin couvertures are each made with cocoa beans from one particular country or region. Each chocolate brings you an exciting taste sensation and aromatic character - reflecting the soil, the climate and the environment where the cocoa beans were grown. Just like wine, the taste of these couvertures can slightly alter with each harvest.

For exceptional BC VQA wines in an exceptional local setting, look no further than Backyard Vineyards in the Township of Langley - the spacious, bountiful backyard to Vancouver, British Columbia. Since 2009, they have been producing award-winning varietals, blended, and bubbly wines from 100% BC grapes grown on-site in their own vineyard and complemented with fruit selected from the Fraser Valley and South Okanagan.
