Kentucky Proud Wine & Chocolate Tasting at Stoneware June 19

I always like hearing about new ideas, especially those including wine and chocolate.

Stoneware, Louisville's premier pottery and stoneware makers, is showcasing Kentucky wine maker, Old 502 Winery, and chocolatiers Cellar Doors at its Third Thursday Lifestyle Series. The wine and chocolate pairing features products by two Kentucky Proud members.

The free event runs from 5-7 p.m., Thursday, June 19. The Lifestyle Series is designed to showcase authentic, local makers of products that complement the Stoneware products and lifestyle.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet Logan Leet, owner of Old 502 Winery, and Erika Chavez, owner of Cellar Door Chocolates, who will explain their processes. Stoneware staff will be on hand to answer questions about products including their new Stoneware Wine Coolers that can be stored in the freezer and used to keep wine chilled.

Old 502 Winery makes its nine unique varieties of wine in downtown Louisville, using grapes sourced from Kentucky farmers.
Since 2007, Cellar Door Chocolates has been sourcing the finest ingredients and creating unique flavor combinations in handmade truffles, butter creams, sea salt caramels and small batch bourbon balls among other chocolate treats.

Stoneware has been hand making and hand painting pottery for the home, garden and kitchen for 199 years.

Kentucky Proud is the state’s official farm marketing program. The Kentucky Proud logo stands for food and farm products raised, made or processed in Kentucky.
