Event Details

Come join passionate host Biagio Abbatiello, owner of Biagio’s Fine Chocolate, along with DC’s premier Spanish wine importer, Tradewinds Specialty Imports, for a fun filled evening showcasing the gems that these two groups of local residents travel abroad to bring to the nation’s capital. Start your evening with a refreshing glass of Cava Rosé, and then enjoy a flight of cava, white and red wines from Spain, while learning about how to choose your next bottle of Spanish wine.

The “DC Wine Guys” at Tradewinds promise to show off how easy it is to understand and appreciate Spanish wine. The evening would not be complete without the usual pairing of Biagio’s masterful selection of 9 premium fine chocolates for tasting, as well as 3 world class filled chocolates made by local artisan chocolatiers.

Please reserve your tickets soon, as out chocolate tastings frequently sell out well in advance as space is limited. Kindly note that the evening is presented as a chocolate and wine tasting reception and not as a seated event.
