Special Chocolate and Wine Event: From Bean to Bar with Bottles

  • Tubac Presidio State Park One Burruel Street Tubac, Az United States (map)

2 pm. Join our local Untamed Confections proprietors Tom and Linda Williams, for an overview of bean to bar in small chocolate production showcasing 3 different varietals of cacao. We'll see some of the equipment and molds used and you'll be able to taste the cacao bean raw as well as finished.

Did you know the Sonoita area vineyards enjoy a climate, soil and growth season similar to the great wine growing regions of Rioja, Spain and the Rhone River areas of France? Karyl Wilhelm, the owner and winemaker of Sonoita's Wilhelm Family Vineyards, will also be here, pouring a few of her 30+ wines, including the award- winning chocolate Ports. 

Her dry reds pair extremely well with chocolate, and the Ports are decadent desserts themselves. Receive six complimentary tastes (you can taste 5 more for $5), and bring your Christmas lists -- Karyl personalizes her bottles! Special chocolate gift packs and bottles of wine will be available. $12.50 includes admission to tour the Park. Seating is limited for this event.

Reservations must be made by calling 398-2252 or email us at
