Private events at Sher-Bliss Wine & Chocolates are….sher bliss!


What happens at Sher-Bliss stays at Sher-Bliss…unless you tell us otherwise.  This group provided pics so others can learn what fun abounds here!  These ladies had a blast at a winetasting, chocolate-making birthday celebration.  Guests chose four wines paired with chocolates, enjoyed appetizers of chocolate black bean burger sliders, blueberry-sea-salted watermelon and chocolate-dipped fruits.  We then turned them loose with a melter full of tempered dark, Belgian chocolate, dippables, enrobeables and candy molds.  I have been doing this for a long time and this was a talented bunch of chocolatiers.

Dipped Strawberries

Ohhh do we dip strawberries and are they ever divine!

  • There      are regularCalifornia     berries dipped in our own blend of Belgian milk or dark  chocolate, or the highest quality white      chocolate.  Drizzled and decorated      and $30 per pound.  As a guideline,      our current berries are coming out approximately to $2-3 each.  Just a guideline and we can try to find      bigger, or smaller. Purchase singly or by the pound.  There is a wide variety of packaging      from which to choose.
  • Utterly      decadent and new this year.  (Sigh)      A creamy cheesecake layer goes on the berry and then we cover it in your      choice of chocolate.  A picture is      worth a thousand words, but tasting is believing.  $35 per pound and a stenciled heart is      included with every pound purchased.
  • Colossal      long-stem strawberries-presented in the same choices above, but maybe,      there are 4 to the pound.  SPECIAL      ORDER only, call by 5PM on Friday February 10th.

Bliss In a Bottle

Chocolate and wine unite in one great item.  Select one of our 500 labels of small production beer, wine andChampagne, flavor of chocolate and we really have you and this covered with a one-of-a-kind gift.  Visit us in-store, or call for expanded selection or at process through the secure, google checkout, selecting a message card and telling us what to write on an enclosure card.  We ship UPS ground unless heat, or time requires expedited shipping and can tell you your rates.  Someone at least 21 years of age must sign for it and we are unfortunately unable to ship to certain states. 

Chocolate & Wine Flights

For many years I have been pairing chocolate and wine and NOT just for dessert.  There are savory combinations we have perfected as well.  For this Valentine’s Day and weekend prior, 25 wines will be available in a “pick your flight” line-up to sample, savor, enjoy and later dream about.  There are reds, whites and pinks, still and sparkling, sweet and dry, AND cookie dough and cauliflower.  The entire menu will be revealed on Friday, February 10th beginning at 7PM.  To whet your appetite for this incredible line-up I will share two pairings, but, please, don’t tell anyone!

Conundrum 2009 Red, silky, rich and velvety offset with cayenne-spiked milk and dark chocolates.

Spann Vineyards 2008 Classic Four Bordeaux-style blend with a medium-sharp white cheddar blended with dark chocolate shavings.

Caramel Apple and Wine??

Millions of delicious caramel apples are consumed every year.  Whether it be a fair treat,
a fun activity for the kids, or you’re just craving the scrumptious pairing of apple and caramel, it’s bound to make for a better day.  But I wonder how many of this ever popular item are enjoyed with wine as the apple?

As we’ve said for years, Wine + Chocolate = Sher Bliss! Picture the caramel apple from above…… but this time it’s a juicy apple wine encased in pure Belgian chocolate, a luscious layer of creamy caramel, followed again by more pure Belgian chocolate!! Pull the tabs,
chocolate falls away from the bottle and voila! What a great fall treat.

Come see us at the Sher Bliss shop or check out @ to get this unique play on an historic American treat!   Learn more about this hot new Apple wine at

Secco Italian Bubbles, great with food or as an atypical bellini base

These Italian bubbles are so much fun and offer endless food-pairing possibilities.  The white is Prosecco and Pinot Blanc and the pretty red is Prosecco and Pinot Noir.  I recently served both at a brunch.  The white was fantastic with a grilled veggie, Gruyere and Swiss frittata and a salad of shredded, zucchini, herbs and chevre.  The red with  lush strawberry notes, was great with a cold peach and mango soup,  and a sourcream-topped, raspberry and fig gratin.

Just to make things more interesting, Tesoora Limone and lemon zest made a fun bellini with the white and raspberry liqueur and raspberries were delicious with the red.   As i said, not a typical bellini, but a fun treat!
