These are exciting times here at Chilli and Chocolate!
We have a lot of things planned for 2010, but the newest development and one which we’re most excited about is working with Direct Wine Shipments.
The main reason for starting Chilli and Chocolate was to let you know about what was available out there – products, producers, and providers that Kelly and I love and which we went back to again and again. Another reason was to allow you to get to know some of the producers and store-owners, to allow you to talk to them and find out more about where your food and wine come from.
Direct Wine Shipments are wine merchants in Belfast and definitely fall into this group – and, after another really enjoyable wine-tasting at their premises on Corporation Square, we got talking..
What does this mean for Chilli and Chocolate?
You’ll notice that DWS are now sponsoring our Wine Reviews section. So rather than buying bottles of wine at random from wine-stores up and down the country we’ll be sampling selected wines from their store – which means that you’ll know where to find it and how much it costs.
We’ll also be writing a post in our “Local Food Heroes” section all about Direct Wine Shipments so you’ll get to know them – who they are, what they do, and what their plans for the future are.
What does this mean for you?
The most important development for our members is that there will be discounts, events, and competitions from DWS just for you.
It also means that we’ll be running a couple of private tastings for our members at Direct Wine Shipments, so they’ll get to know you too. Keep your eyes peeled for news about these tastings later in the month.
This is the first of several big announcements planned for the year ahead – hopefully you’re as excited as we are about what 2010 has to offer!
