Wine & Chocolate Festival – Review

Do you enjoy wine? Do you find chocolate irresistible? If you’re anything like us, they’re are your two favourite things in life, so on Saturday we went along to the Wine and Chocolate Festival eager to indulge.  

Offered a relaxing and enjoyable afternoon, the festival was held at Seaworks, Williamstown; right beside the pier with an amazing view. The sunny weather topped off an amazing afternoon along with some jazz music and DJ Mimi.

There were 13 stalls of wineries, 7 food trucks + 4 food vendors. The most fun and interesting part of the festival was of course the food pairing. Who would have known that Coedo Beniaka, a Japanese sweet potato crafted beer would go so well with chocolate? All the wine/beer pairing with chocolate were designed by a chocolate master chef from Belgium, Filip Tibos, and he truly knew what choccies went with what beverage.

If you were after some real food, you could find yourself right beside the pier with seven other food trucks, which the festival offered. We dined on a chicken paella from A Touch of Spain and the pork sliders with zing from Sliders of Tyres.

Overall the day, was perfect for catching up with friends, delicious wine, mouth-watering food and an incredible view of Melbourne skyline  by the water.
