The exciting Cellar2Cellar Trail Run & Wine Experience returns to the beautiful winelands on Saturday, 07 September 2013. Wine and chocolate enthusiasts can look forward to The Wine and Chocolate Experience at Waterford Estate.
“Participants, family and friends can look forward to experiencing a series of Dark and Milk chocolates that, when paired with our Kevin Arnold Shiraz, Waterford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and Waterford Estate Family Reserve Heatherleigh wines, give you a totally unique taste sensation,” says Kerry Sutherland, Sales Manager Waterford Estate. “Waterford Estate first started pairing wine with chocolate in 2008. Kevin was travelling in America and read about the antioxidants in chocolate and the health benefits. After conducting research into the matter he started working with Chocolatier Richard Von Geusau and they developed the flavours for the chocolates. The response received from the public has been overwhelming with visitors continuously returning for more”.

“We are excited to be involved in the Cellar2Cellar Trail Run & Wine Experience,” continues Sutherland. “It’s a fun day out for participants, supporters and staff of Waterford Estate. We get to present our brand to people that might not yet have visited the Estate. This is the perfect event where families can relax and have fun”.

The Wine and Chocolate Experience at Waterford Estate will include the following pairings:

• MASALA CHAI: 70% cocoa chocolate with a gentle blend of six warm and exotic spices, paired with the
Kevin Arnold Shiraz
• ROCK SALT: Crystals of salt enliven this 70% cocoa chocolate which draws attention to the savoury aspect
of the Waterford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
• ROSE GERANIUM: A creamy chocolate filled with the taste and fragrance of a bunch of roses is paired
perfectly with the Waterford Estate Family Reserve Heatherleigh

Hungry participants and supports can indulge in mouth-watering “boerewors rolls” that will be on offer at Waterford Wine Estate on the day.
