Thank you very much for your review Tamoor. We are really happy that you liked your experience! We can understand that paying around 20$ for 3 x 2.5 oz. of wine and 6 pieces of chocolate can appear pricy. But this is more than just...More

Today we had a great beer/wine and chocolate pairing at cho.co! Really interesting to taste the difference a good pairing makes in the flavour of both the drink and the chocolate. We are going back to buy some local chocolate.
