I fail to see how anyone would rate this below a 5. I did the tasting for my gf’s bday through groupon. Eating their chocolates with the wine will blow your mind. And the owner was super nice! It was like talking to family. She told us about her experiences on food network and how the business grew. She was super humble! Definitely going back.

So much fun! We had a Groupon for a chocolate and wine pairing. The lady who we dealt with was very nice. She gave us our space and let us take our time enjoying our wine and confections. Her wine selections aren’t fantastic, but the chocolate was YUMMY! Such good chocolate and inventive combinations – lemon white chocolate, chili dark chocolate, toffee milk chocolate. We also got a chocolate covered strawberry and a chocolate truffle. I ate the strawberry, but skipped the truffle.

The workers are extremely friendly and their frozen yogurt is delicious!! A nice place to hit up after a long day of wine drinking.

This was our first stop on our day out in Napa but, really, who can ever turn down a chocolate and wine pairing? Or even chocolate by itself? Either way, I’m so glad we found this gem and can’t wait to come back.Here are the highlights of our time here that made it impossible to give anything but five stars: 1) Honouring an expired Groupon: One of my friends had a chocolate-and-wine pairing (including truffles) that had expired; however, the host still honoured it. Majorly cool of him. Al…

I purchased a groupon for two chocolate and wine pairing. The gentleman greeted us and was very knowledgeable and generous with the wine pouring. The chocolates were very tasty. I never thought of white lemon bar with Chardonnay would taste sooooo good. I really liked the spicy chocolate too with the red wine. So different! Thank you for getting us buzzed!!!!

Like anywhere else, a wine tasting is primarily made or broken by the the person pouring the wine. We had a fantastic experience made so by the gentleman pouring behind the counter. He made it fun, was very knowledgeable and also had great recommendations. I loved the port wine and sauvignon blanc. Okay, so overall not the best wine I ever had but the chocolate was divine. They are open until 10pm. We had a nice dinner, walked around the riverfront and ended the evening at this place. …

If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then chocolate is her soulmate. My trips to wine country don’t only consist of drinking copious amounts of spiked grape juice, but they also provide me with an opportunity to eat at the amazing restaurants that Napa/Sonoma/Calistoga and the likes have to offer, as well as hitting up some local small businesses. Vintage Sweet Shoppe came to me in the form of a Groupon delivered to my inbox. $14 for a chocolate and wine pairing package for two ($28 v…

My friends and I dropped by the Vintage Sweet Shoppe while on a road trip to Napa. We did some wine tasting w/ chocolate courtesy of a Groupon deal. I’m not a wine connoisseur, so my comments will not be as sophisticated or in depth. My favorite drink was the port — Prager Winery & Port Works Petite Sirah, vintage 2006. It was rich, heavy, and sweet — a perfect indulgence to have every night w/ or w/o chocolate. The owner was also very sweet and she gave us some valuable advice on how to keep …

Excellent service from Robert! We purchased the chocolate and wine pairing deal from Groupon, so worth the money! The chocolates paired nicely with each wine they offered. Looking forward to visiting next time I’m in Napa.
