You may remember last year when I attended the Austin Food & Wine Festival. It was so fun! Sadly, I can’t go this year because I’ll be out of town for a friend’s wedding (that part is not sad!) But I love food and wine so much, it’s like this event was made for me. Right?

Austin Food & Wine Festival 2013


So I won’t be there in person, but I can create my own Food & Wine Festival! I’m a genius. All I need is wine, and chocolate. I’m all about dark chocolate, so the 72% Twilight Delight Ghirardelli Intense Dark Chocolate is right up my alley. 

For those of you lucky enough to attend, Ghirardelli will be there sampling their chocolate and pairing it with wine.  There will also be massages for the VIPs! Darrrnnn. I love my Ghirardelli with rich, fruity cabs and fresh raspberries. The combo is just so good!


Ghirardelli Intense Dark Chocolate is is premium, intense, slow-melting dark chocolate with complex flavors. It’s organic and all natural. But most of all it tastes delicious! There are 8 flavors to enjoy:

• 72% Twilight Delight
