About Wine and Chocolate at Waterford Estates

A day in the country side can soothe most symptoms of stress. A glass of wine can dissolve most moments of misfortune. A mouthful of chocolate can mend a multitude of sins. A day in the countryside spent tasting trios of wine and chocolate would probably contribute to world peace if only the UN knew where the gem of Waterford Estate was hiding out.

This acclaimed vineyard roots its vines on 120 hectares in the Blaauwklippen Valley. Surrounded by mountain and lavender the arresting Stellenbosch scenery rolls lawns into ancient citrus groves leaving the scent of oranges and a floral herbal mist lingering in the sunlight. Fuse red and dessert wines with milk and dark chocolate in a courtyard of fountains and fancy.

Handmade cocoa creations awash with hand picked grape sensations plump afternoons with delight. Tranquil wine tastings on white sofas backdropped in stone architecture contemplates flavours of fullness accompanied by decadent Von Gesau chocolates. Cocoa beans contain natural tannins as does grapes resulting in a seamless sip matched to a beautiful bite as a result of chemical similarities in the bean structure and grape skin.

Melt rock salt dark chocolate with Cabernet Sauvignon, dip taste buds in a sweet late harvest followed by a rose geranium milk chocolate treat and smoothly travel from Shiraz to a land of Masala chai dark chocolate. These custom chocolates are especially made to match Kevin Arnold's specially grown varietals served in this land of landscaped cocoa and twine.
