Tasting to Sample Wine, Chocolate

Two Wauwatosa shops will work together to show us the art of pairing chocolate with a variety of wines at the club’s afternoon tea on Feb. 1. The event begins at 1 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

Ruby Tap will introduce varieties of wine that enhance different types of chocolate.

Jim Niemann will bring samples of several of his products that complement various wines.

Niemann’s Chocolates and Candies has created homemade candy and ice cream in Wauwatosa since 1919. Using family recipes passed down through the generations, Jim has developed and improved hundreds of creations while allowing the business to maintain its historical roots.
