Alexander's Fine Chocolates - presents...
Wine Education Night
Friday, May 6, 2022, 6:30 pm. Doors open at 6 pm. Tickets: $75 per person.
Portuguese wine is the result of traditions introduced to the region by ancient civilizations, such as the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, and mostly the Romans. Portugal started to export its wines to Rome during the Roman Empire. Modern exports developed with trade to England after the Methuen Treaty in 1703. It was a military and commercial treaty between England and Portugal that was signed as part of the War of Spanish Succession. The treaty stipulated that no tax higher than the tax charged for an equal amount of French wines could be charged for Portuguese wines exported to England and that no English textiles exported to Portugal would be charged any taxes, regardless of the geopolitical situation in each of the two nations (to ensure England would still accept Portuguese wine in periods when not at war with France). Portugal has a vast quantity of native grape varieties (more than 250) which allows the production of a great diversity of wines with very distinct personalities. Port wine, which is ubiquitously known the world over as coming from Portugal is not the only wine produced there. To the surprise of nearly everyone. Join WSET Level III Certified Sommelier Steve as he presents you with a mind-boggling 'SECRET' about Portugal... Wait for it... SHOCK!!! They make other wines besides just PORT!~~~~~~ This course steps you closer to exploring not just 'wine tasting' but introduces you to Portuguese wine with traditional dessert and/or food pairings... thus, the Wine+ designation. We must have a count of those who've reserved their Wine+ attendance in advance in order to allow us time to prepare all of the items and quantities needed. We sincerely Thank You for your understanding.

After enjoying an enthralling Underground Tour and passing Alexander's during, we strolled back around to this lovely shop where we recieved a sample of the best hot chocolate that I've ever had. Steve greeted us with a smile and made me feel very welcome in this adorable chocolate shop. Of course I tried the chocolate and those who know me, know that I enjoyed the wine tasting too. I was proud to see walls filled with local wine and brew. I left with head filled all of the knowledge I gained unexpectedly during a wine tasting, hands full with my purchases, heart happy, but NOT my debit card. 😹 Even in with all of the elegance of Alexander's, my true clumsy nature came out. Thankfully, they found it. Even with that minor mishap, stopping by Alexander's was a very satisfying part of my trip and I will gladly return and keep an eye out for future events that they'll be attending.
