Chocolate and Wine Pairing with the Cocoa Runners

We’re delighted to welcome back The Cocoa Runners for another evening of online chocolate and wine pairing.

Whilst chocolate and wine matching might seem like an easy indulgence, it can be more complicated than you think with an intricate battle of sugars, tannins, and alcohol.

In this relaxed (and delicious!) pairing evening, the Tastings Team is joined by chocolate expert Spencer Hyman from The Cocoa Runners to guide you through some of their favourite matches.

This event is a brilliant one to gift to chocoholics or to buy for yourself for a little well-warranted hedonism. It’s also a great one to share with friends, family and loved ones – because, after all, who doesn’t love chocolate and wine?!

Bespoke chocolate tasting kits created for The Wine Society are available to purchase on the Cocoa Runners website and can be found here –

The pairings are as follows:

Standout – Urubamba, Peru 70% Dark paired with Bourgueil ‘Passion’, Joël Taluau 2020
