Cocoa Local

Fine & Raw bonbons

NY Mag recently profiled 7 local chocolatiers in anticipation of Valentine’s Day and we have 3 of them in the store (Nunu, Fine & Raw and Vere) for your Valentine’s pleasure.

We’ve previously profiled Vere and Nunu and are tasting them in the Brooklyn wine store tonight from 5-7pm along with some port wines from New York, California and, of course, Portugal. Fine & Raw is a new addition to our chocolate lineup. Handmade in Brooklyn and sweetened with agave, they are ideal for your vegan valentine. Dense and intense, they will also please a meat-eatin’ sweetie.

Save the Date! Daniel Sklaar, the maker of Fine & Raw, will visit Greene Grape Provisions on February 20 from 6-8 pm to provide tastes of his remarkable chocolates.

Chocolate and Port Tasting

Nunu Salt Caramel

Join us in the Brooklyn wine store on Friday, February 13 from 5-7pm when we sample Nunu chocolates and three kinds of port. Port and chocolate are a classic pairing and we’re thrilled at the opportunity to showcase our Nunu chocolates.

Nunu Chocolates are handmade in Brooklyn by Justine Pringle. She uses a single-origin cocoa bean grown on a family-run farm in eastern Colombia to craft her delicious chocolates. Our favorite is the salt caramel – it deliciously combines sweet and salty flavors and is even adorned with flakes of salt. Caramel sans extra salt comes in the beautiful package of her Golden Caramel Butterflies. We’ll be pairing Justine’s chocolates with Charbay ruby port, Infantado tawny port and Blueberry port from Duckwalk vineyards.

The Brooklyn wine store is at 765 Fulton Street in Fort Greene, Brooklyn 718.797.9463. Nunu chocolates are available at the food store, Greene Grape Provisions, at 753 Fulton Street in Fort Greene, Brooklyn 718.233.2700.
