Public Wine Tasting Events

wine and chocolate

We organize a number of public wine events that we announce through various local channels including The Atlanta Wine Meetup, 35UP! Social and Activity Group Meetup and Mingling in Atlanta Meetup. If you are a venue in the greater Atlanta area, we would be interested in partnering with you to organize one or more events at your establishment. A few of our past events that we have organized include:

  • Wine and chocolate pairing
  • Wine and cheese pairing
  • Wine Counseling (practical wine education; includes maximizing the flavor of wine)
  • Wine and food pairing
  • Spanish wines and tapas
  • Blind tasting
  • Aerator Workshop

We have had capacity crowds at a number of these events. Check back with us to learn about future events. Once COVID is not a factor, we will organize more public events.

Summer Wines & Chocolate Event July 30th, 2022

*** NOTE *** RSVPing does NOT secure a seat for you at this event. Only prepaying will save you a seat.

Experience an afternoon of delicious summer wines and handcrafted chocolates at The Wine Store in Johns Creek, GA. Our wine and chocolate events have been a very popular experience for those who love wine and chocolate. This is an open house so arrive anytime between 2:00 and 4:00 PM (we will close at 5 PM).

Enjoy generous pours of 6 different wines (white, Rosé, and red) selected by Keith Lofton, The Wine Store’s General Manager, for their affinity with chocolate. Orson and Karl agree that these are tasty selections. Each French chocolate has been handcrafted by our chocolatier, Karl Vivier, to pair with each wine. Both the chocolates and the wines will be available for sale at this event.

Karl Vivier, the owner of A Cacao Affair, personally makes every chocolate in-house at his artisanal chocolate boutique in Marietta. Made in the style of gourmet Swiss and French chocolates, Karl uses only the world's freshest cacao beans.
