Sample the dark side and never return...

Have your say

A journey to the dark side is on the cards at a city gastro pub.

Owners of the Milestone @ The Wig and Pen, Matt Bigland and Mark Sheldon, are confident it’s a place from which you’ll never want to return.

Fear not, though - they’re talking chocolate.

The Campo Lane pub has launched a Wine Club and its next event explores the combination of grape and chocolate. As the sommelier teaches what wines compliment - with five or six to sample - expert chocolatiers from Hotel Chocolat in Meadowhall will be tempting Dairy Milk palates on to more intense flavour sensations.

“By the time the night is over most people will be pretty merry - and totally in love with 70 per cent cocoa solid chocolate and vowing never to go back,” says Matt.”

The event is next Tuesday (February 22) and costs £25, or £20 for Milestone Wine Club members (it’s an annual £10 fee to join and offers members hand-selected cases every two months).

On March 9 a Wines of South America night is planned (tickets £15 and £10).
