The Grape Escape “Hands-on Winery” Launches New Culinary Experience
February 17, 2010 - Dayton, NJ – The Grape Escape hands-on winery expanded its offering in 2009 to include fun culinary workshops, such as Make Your Own Mozzarella and Bottle Your Own Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. After a successful 2009 campaign, The Grape Escape is now launching its newest workshop – Melt Your Own Wine-Infused Chocolate.
The Grape Escape has partnered with Master Chocolatier Jim Robinson of Robinson’s Fine Candies in Princeton to create five unique blends of wine-infused dark chocolate. Customers can choose which blend they want, melt their own chocolate and then custom package each personal bar.
This unique experience is only available at The Grape Escape. Each chocolate flavor has been carefully designed to match specific wines. It’s the perfect combination of decadent world class chocolate and wonderful wines from around the world which are made right here in Dayton NJ.
“After the success of our other fun workshops, combining wine and chocolate seemed to be a perfect marriage,” said Thomas Nye, CTO (Chief Tannin Officer) and co-owner at The Grape Escape. “There is no one else doing these type of workshops, so we are pleased that the response has been as strong as we expected.”
“In this economy, customers are looking for value. Our one day culinary events are fun and you can walk out with a customized product made with your own two hands. What else is better? A combination of fun and value.” said Nancy Nye (Chief Fun Officer) and co-owner.
There is a movement out there where people are seeking to know what’s in their food and where it’s grown or how it’s made.” said Thomas Nye. We are seeing this with Make Your Own Wine as well as our other classes such as Make Your Own Mozzarella. People want to be a part of the food and wine experience and they want to have fun making the it themselves.”
