Chocolate and Wine Festival
Everything’s bigger in Texas, including the annual chocolate and wine festival. Every October, the Boerne, Texas fairgrounds host this popular event for families to come and enjoy. At the event, goers will be able to sample chocolates in a variety of forms and flavors all the way from bon-bons to fondue and many more baked goods made by famed chefs and chocolatiers. There is also an opportunity for children to make their own sweet treats and for families to watch culinary theatre to learn facts about chocolate and how to cook it.
If you’re already a Houston chocolatier yourself, then you should enter the chocolate desserts competition. Prepare your best chocolate dessert and enter in either the professional or amateur category for the chance to win a ribbon and a prize. Afterwards, your dessert will be auctioned off for someone else to enjoy!
On top of everything, you’ll also be able to enjoy a glass of wine, and even chocolate inspired margaritas, daiquiris, and pina coladas.
