The beautiful wine country we have in Livermore Valley is often mentioned in my blogs. And for good reason! Wine production is an important part of our regional heritage. Our local wineries proudly continue the tradition with award-winning vintages. Livermore Valley’s wine reputation attracts tourism and helps draw new home buyers to our area.
Another selling point of Livermore Valley is our proximity to San Francisco. Livermore is about 45 miles away from San Francisco, giving us space from the hustle and bustle, yet allowing a reasonable drive to the big city. This is good to know when special events come around, like the San Francisco International Chocolate Salon!
Chocolate lovers will want to clear their calendars for this one. The finest chocolatiers, confectioners, and gourmet sweet purveyors will be at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco on April 17. Admission fees apply, but samples of chocolate paradise are included!
You’ll also enjoy chocolate-making demonstrations, celebrity chef presentations, and expert wine pairing advice. Over 50 exhibitors will be taking part of this popular event.
Chocolate was once viewed as a mere indulgence, but medical studies of recent years suggest that dark chocolate provides some health benefits. In fact, you may have already heard that dark chocolate can boost your mood, improve your circulation, and provide antioxidants. This echoes similar findings about the benefits of red wine when consumed in moderation.
Not only does dark chocolate pair well with red wines, the combination is potentially good for you!
That should cover your conscience as you nibble your way through the San Francisco International Chocolate Salon.
Our region is known for having a cultured palate. You can see this by looking at the quality of restaurants and wineries we have right here in Livermore Valley!
