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
• Sea Salt Soiree
• 86% Midnight Reverie
• 60% Cacao Evening Dream

• Hazelnut Heaven

Don’t those all sound amazing??

    my boyfriend actually buys this chocolate in bulk from amazon. he’s out of control. the chocolate + a delicious porter/stout is fab.

  2. Dana says

    I love the toffee interlude so all of the pairings (esp with pretzels) sounds delicious

  3. Natalie Vandenberghe says

    INTENSE DARK (72% cacao) TWILIGHT DELIGHT with a Cab sounds fabulous to me!

  4. jacquie says

    that hazelnut with either the red wine or Frangelico I also think it would be great in some cookies along w/ the crystallized ginger they mentioned,

  5. Pat Walker Pinkston says

    I like the Twilight Delight with a warm cup of black tea. I’m not much of a drinker.

    I love pairing the MIDNIGHT REVERIE with a red wine. My favorite has been a Merlot and the deep dark chocolate flavor to nibble on with it. And yes, I’ve tried it, love it. :)

  7. E. Samples says

    The midnight reverie chocolate with dry red wine and gourmet marshmallows sounds sooo good.

  8. Annette says

    My favorite pairing is INTENSE DARK EVENING DREAM with a cup of latte and coconut macaroons.
