Treat Your Taste Buds at the Chocolate, Wine, and Spirits Expo

If the thought of unlimited chocolate samples makes your mouth water, you’re not alone. OneEleven residents have an appreciation for the finer things in life, such as high-quality chocolate and wine. At the Chocolate, Wine, and Spirits Expo, you can sample and purchase gourmet treats while raising money to help a local children’s charity. 

The Chocolate, Wine, and Spirits Expo

Treat your taste buds to dozens of decadent samples and decide which ones you’d like to bring home. Over 50 fine chocolate, wine, and other vendors will be available to share samples, demonstrations, and insight into what goes into making gourmet chocolates and wines. Chocolate and other snack samples are included in the cost of admission. If you love tasting wine, too, purchase an extra wine and spirits tasting ticket. Along with a portion of the money raised from admission fees, all proceeds from wine tasting tickets will be donated to Holiday Heroes. 

Holiday Heroes

Gourmet Expos is excited to partner with Holiday Heroes, a Chicago-based nonprofit organization that provides birthday and holiday parties to children in local hospitals. The organization brightens children’s days through decorations, games, music, and other fun holiday events to boost their spirits during difficult times. And because a large portion of the money raised through the Chocolate, Wine, and Spirits Expo will go to this organization, so you can enjoy sweet treats while raising money for a good cause!
