Graham’s & Co. Presents Bacchus Meets Quetzalcoatl: Seven Deadly Sins
Our 33rd Annual Wine & Chocolate Tasting
Decadent chocolate creations from Graham’s Fine Chocolates & 318 Coffee House, paired with wines expertly chosen by our staff & Southern Wine & Spirits.
For over 30 years we have explored the decadent pairings of Graham’s Chocolates and delicious wines during Geneva’s Festival of the Vine. This year we we will again be exploring the Seven Deadly Sins, creating a chocolate bite or pastry to go along with each of the sins, paired beautifully with the wines we have expertly chosen to compliment them. Our Wine & Chocolate Event is celebrating our 33rd Anniversary this year, so we thank you for helping us keep this yearly event alive even during the most difficult times. It has been an especially challenging year for us, and we thank you for your support, it means the world to us and the entire Graham’s Family.
LOCATION for 2022:
This year, we are moving the event back to 318 Coffee House. Our coffee shop will be closed to the public both nights and open exclusively just for this private event with tastings offered upstairs and downstairs – indoor & outdoor event, please dress accordingly. Two of our amazing vendors, Kio Kreations & Twee Parties are setting up fun photo opportunities for you & your friends to enjoy and this year we will welcome back the amazing live music of Annalee.
While we know this changes the event significantly, we are hoping you will find it as magical as in year’s past. Moving it back to a brick & mortar location will allow us to offer 4 nice bathrooms (no more porta-potty!), freedom from bad weather scares, and better security. We have also increased the time for the tastings and will sell less tickets per time slot to ensure your comfort. We appreciate your understanding and are so thankful for your support.
