continuing my exploration of wine ganache...
this time partnering with BreggoVineyards of Anderson Valley. we are to be tent mates,
featured at Mendocino's A Taste of Chocolate Wine & Ale this coming Sunday, and since
i always try to create recipes that celebrate the venue, i asked them to choose a wine to combine w chocolate.
this fine 2010 Pinot Noir from their Savoy vineyard is their featured wine...it gives an interesting aspect to the ganache, a bit like toasted brioche, and goes well while tasting the wine...they commissioned a first batch to be offered (w seven handpainted designs) to guests at the winery's Pinot Noir Festival event last Sunday. evidently the 110 bonbons went quickly, with genial fighting over the last ones!!! a new batch will be available this Sunday in Mendocino at Chocolate Wine & Ale...
