Chocolate Adventures with Lianna - Chocolate Events! July 21 2015


Ok, so now you know I love wine and chocolate, but did you know I also love special events?  I love attending fundraising events, I love attending fun family events and I also love putting on special events of all kinds!  Bringing people together to learn something new, support something that they are passionate about or bringing people together to just have fun, is a passion of mine.  So, why not do the same with chocolate and host some CHOCOLATE EVENTS!


Forte’s Master Chocolatier, Karen Neugebauer, is so talented and full of chocolate knowledge, so naturally our first event involves her and Chocolate Maker, from Fresco Chocolate, Rob Anderson.  You can attend one, two or three of the Chocolate Discoveries sessions.  The sessions are going to cover everything from bean to bar and of course you will get to taste chocolate from all over the world!  All session details and tickets can be found online by visiting  The first session begins on July 30th, so don’t delay, tickets are limited.

Our next event that we created is for KIDS!  Yes, kids love chocolate too and what better experience than to get to play with chocolate and create something artistic!  Our Chocolate Sculpting for Kids event is open for children ages 8-18.  This 3 hour session on Saturday, August 1st, will involve kids learning about chocolate, creating their own chocolate sculpture and then having it featured in our Mount Vernon store for the Kids Art Walk on August 6th!  This will be a fun event and something different and a nice change from all of the sports camps being offered right now!  There are only 10 spots available for this event.  More information and tickets must be purchased online at


In addition to us creating and hosting our own events, did you know we also offer many different opportunities for your business to host events OR for you to bring in a group and host your own private event?

If you own a business and want to host an after hour event and you don’t want to hold it at your office or home, consider hosting it in our Mount Vernon store location!  Of course we will help you out by providing tables, chairs and CHOCOLATE!  The same goes for personal events such as birthday parties, bachelorette parties, celebrations etc!  Pretty much any celebration you can think of, we can host it!  Ever thought about having your child’s birthday party in our production kitchen and having them create their own chocolate bar?  Yes, we do that!  Ever thought about treating your sweetheart to a private chocolate sculpting experience?  Yes, we do that too!  Want to announce a new product or service to existing or new clients?  Make your announcement while enjoying chocolate!  We guarantee they will show up! ;-) 


The possibilities for events involving chocolate are endless and you are lucky enough to have Forte Chocolates in your backyard to help satisfy all of your chocolate event cravings!!  So, we want to hear from you!  What types of events would you be interested in seeing US host or what types of events would YOU be interested in hosting?   Being that we are local, we can usually be creative and make anything happen.  Please shoot me an email with your thoughts at
