Susan Nido, of Nada’s Italy Tours, had always had a great relationship with The Secret Chocolatier.
Nido would often purchase chocolates for various events and realized the Nada’s and Chocolatier could form a partnership.
The two groups cohosted “Chocolate and Wine – That’s Amore: Sip Taste & Make with an Italian Twist” on Dec. 1, as way to kick start the holiday season.
The event featured a presentation from Nada’s about their services, which include all-inclusive 11-day cultural tours around areas of Italy, as well as a bark-making class. Participants sampled wine and chocolate treats, while socializing.
“We are excited to team up with Nada’s Italy Tours to kick off the holiday season and to give attendees a wonderful chocolate experience with a fun twist of enjoying Italian wines,” said Robin Ciordia, co-owner of The Secret Chocolatier. “This is a great opportunity to learn about and make chocolate, while exploring and delighting your culinary senses.”
The event also kicked off The Secret Chocolatier’s Sizzling Sicily Tour with Nada’s Italy, which is slated for June 16 to 26, 2017.
While visiting Sicily, travelers will be able to walk through the charming hill-top town of Modica, known for a traditional way of making chocolate and visit a historical chocolate factory.
“I know the dedicated, chocolate-loving customers of The Secret Chocolatier will truly enjoy this part of the tour,” Nido said.
She hopes the tour will provide an authentic experience and will give attendees a new perspective.
