chocolate wine

Techno-chef Heston Blumenthal OBE has won a Conde Nast Traveller Innovation Design Award for his chocolate wine.

Blumenthal was nominated for the gourmet category of the awards, and praised for 'splicing grapes with cocoa beans' at the awards ceremony held earlier this week.

The wine, served as a dessert, is made by reducing a bottle of fortified, sweet red Maury wine from southwest France, and blending it with milk and chocolate shavings.

In the gourmet category, Blumenthal narrowly beat 'astonishing' tapas bar Arola, in Madrid, Spain, renowned for its 'deconstructed' tapas.

Other nominees included PlumpJack winery in Napa Valley, which uses solar energy to help power its buildings, and Alain Ducasse's new restaurant Adour in New York, where guests order bottles of wine via an interactive wine list.

Who am I?

My name is Anna.
I am a HUGE lover of Chocolate.
I eat it, I research it, and I live by it.

By day I am a dietician, ironically as it may seem.
By night, I am obsessed with the various aspects related to chocolate.

A Day Without Chocolate is like a day without Sunshine.
