The chocolates were hand-chosen by Neal Bram, owner of Bella Cabosse (formerly Chocolate Sophisticate ), and the wines were matched by a team of experts, including the owner of Vino Locale, our host for the event. The event price also includes light hors-d'oeuvres and a bar of premium chocolate to bring home.

Vino Locale (www.VinoLocale.com)
Vino Locale has been our dream for many years. The idea of specializing in local wines came about after traveling to the wine regions of Italy and France where, when visiting a certain region, local wines are proudly featured in the wine stores and wine bars. Santa Clara county and the Santa Cruz Mountains have a rich history of producing world class wines, yet finding these wines in stores and restaurants can be a challenge.

The wines we carry are predominantly from Santa Clara County and the Santa Cruz Mountains, with a few from neighboring Alameda and San Mateo. Most of the wines are made from grapes grown on the winery's estate, and most are family owned. We feature a different wine each month with special pricing for our Wine Club Members, "meet the winemaker" tastings and other promotional events.

Bella Cabosse (formerly Chocolate Sophisticate) (www.ChocolateSophisticate.com)
Bella Cabosse's mission is to deliver the finest chocolates from around the world right to your door. Chocolate has been worshiped for hundreds of years as the "Fruit of the Gods" and rightfully so. Fine chocolate can be a sensual delicacy for both the palette and the soul. In other words, it just makes us feel good.

At Bella Cabosse, we are dedicated to sharing the finest chocolates from around the world. Our collection is very selective and only offers the best of the best. Although only a select few have discovered great chocolate, those in the know will agree that chocolate has all the sophistication, allure, and presence of a fine red wine or any of life's other luxuries. But, chocolate has a much more affordable price tag. That's why we believe chocolate is approachable and can be savored by all.
