What you'll do
What better way to spend a Friday afternoon than to discover the rich and diverse chocolate and beverage scene on Portland’s West Side? This three-hour Portland walking tour features three tasty stops that range in chocolate form, flavor, and fun. We will learn more about Portland's craft and artisanal chocolate scene, the chocolate making process and its dynamic forms and pairings, and how to taste chocolate like a sommelier from your tour guide. Plus we will actually practice tasting chocolate at each stop, including two pairings with spirits! Not to mention exercising and burning off the chocolate we consume between stops! On this one-of-a-kind West Portland tour, we will sample and taste chocolate in all forms and flavors from liquid to solid, from bean-to-bar craft chocolate bars to alternative candy confections made with various inclusions, such as olive oil, caramel, and Oregon-distilled spirits! In addition, this special tasting tour includes pairings with wine, bubbles, and craft Oregon whiskey. You will hear from the experts themselves, i.e. the makers, the tasters, the distillers, the servers. If booking for tour is closed, please message host!
