It is described as a soft and deliciously luscious red sparkling wine with charming hints of rose petals and raspberries. What is wine and berries best friend on Valentine’s Day? You guessed it, chocolate! Check out our Mexican dark chocolates from Taza. These are stone-ground, organic, gluten, soy & dairy free chocolates that are tremendous by themselves or melted down into hot cocoa. We have cacoa pure, orange, salted almond, vanilla, guajillo chili and salt & pepper flavors for $4.50 each.  This pairing has the makings of the perfect Valentine’s Day gift or evening!
