after college i was lucky enough to work at the salon at swanson vineyards. it is a magical place to say the least. situated in the heart of rutherford...each day was a beautiful new adventure. the wine incredible. the family so special. i really can't say enough...
this past week i have not been able to stop thinking about their alexis bonbons. they truly are divine. + quite honestly, i have driven myself mad. buying + eating chocolate at every store in town. nothing coming close to comparison.
they are perfectly described on the swanson vineyards website as...
"the delightful creation of vosges haut-chocolat of chicago, our bonbons have a velvety heart of exotic cacao melded with our alexis cabernet sauvignon blend. dipped in luscious dark belgian chocolate, they are sprinkled with a delicate curry powder of chinese star anise, cumin, cloves and a touch of pink peppercorn."
click here for more information. or call the salon at 707.967.3500.
alexis bonbons are $35 for a hatbox of 12
$6 for a 2 piece "tiny box"
it looks like i am taking a drive up to rutherford tomorrow ;)
