This past Friday, N and I attended the 60th birthday party for a close family friend. The birthday girl loves wine, so I was on the hunt for a wine-themed birthday present. After various wine accessories came up short, I decided to go over to Lilly Handmade Chocolates
, where the amazing amazing Amanda Montague whips up delicious chocolate confections to go with the equally delicious beverages in her store.
I've tried Amanda's tastings before
, and I know from experience that its best to have her help pick out both the wine and the chocolate. I have a tendency to pick wine bottles based on the label art (I know, I know), so I ended up with this:
A sparkling Malbec with Blueberry ad Mixed Berry Bars
Of course, no visit to Lilly's would be complete without a little something for me
The nutty bark. Which I opened in the car. mmmmmmmmm delicious! (For my non-Cleveland readers, you can order this online by going here
The birthday party was amazing: It was held at Patterson Fruit Farms
and included a Neil Diamond Tribute Band! Delores, I hope you had a wonderful birthday, and I hope you enjoy your wine and chocolate!!!
