Grahamís Port partners with luxury chocolate maker Rococo

16 March, 2016

Premium Port company Grahamís has announced a new partnership with artisan chocolatier Rococo Chocolates, as part of an ongoing objective to promote Port and food pairings.

The collaboration begins with a promotion for off-trade customers, offering a free 20g dark chocolate Bee Bar from Rococo with any purchase of a bottle of Grahamís Six Grapes. The intense 65% dark chocolate is believed to match perfectly with the ďexceptionally full-bodiedĒ Six Grapes.

The promotion is exclusive to independent retailers in London and throughout the UK, who are the main stockists of Six Grapes, to coincide with the Easter sales period.

Other projects are in the pipeline for the partnership and these will be implemented throughout the year, showcasing different styles of Port matched with the varying flavour profiles of the artisan chocolate.

Charlotte Symington of John E Fells said: ďAs we continue to look at ways to get a younger audience to consider Port, we felt that chocolate pairing was an obvious partnership to try and engage and reach new customers. Itís wonderful working with Rococo Chocolates and learning more about the intricate flavour profiles of chocolate paired with Port, highlighting the way in which the characteristics of our Ports are perfectly complemented by different flavours of the chocolate.Ē

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
