Elements Wine Bar


Do you need wine for Valentines Day? Do you also need some unique chocolate to impress your valentine? Elements Wine Bar in Valparaiso Indiana has got you covered.
The week before the big day we’re hosting a special tasting: six delicious wines will be paired with individual chocolate creations by the brilliant, award winning pastry chef Richard Cusick from Evolution Artisan Confections. This will be a “sit down” tasting, which means we will serve you the wine and chocolate and educate you on each item. Sit down will be at 6 pm. The wines at the tasting will be available for purchase, with your custom order available for pick-up before the 14th.

Don’t miss out on this! We are only selling a select amount of tickets – which are available on eventbrite and at the bar.
