Wine & Chocolate
Knapp Winery & Vineyard Restaurant will be serving special wine and chocolate pairings Mondays through Thursdays. We will be offering bonbons, bark and fudge which will be served with premium Knapp wines with chocolate handcrafted by Gretchen from Gretchen’s Confections of Auburn, NY.
Gretchen graduated from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Seattle, WA. She then went on to graduate from École Chocolat’s Certified Chocolatier Program and launched her business Handcrafted Gretchen’s Confections in Auburn NY in 2020. Gretchen is eager to partner with a Finger Lakes Winery to help bring the best of the local food and wine scene together.

Knapp Lemberger and UO Cabernet Franc will be paired with Gretchen’s Electric Avenue bonbon of a dark chocolate with black currant truffle.
Knapp’s Chardonnays or Vignoles will be paired with Gretchen’s Whimsey bonbon, a milk chocolate shell with white chocolate, coconut, and roasted almonds.
