Finnriver's Cacao Wine with Apple Brandy is a tribute to two things we love well: tree fruit and chocolate!  Our pear wine provides the smooth subtle understory, the cacao provides the bittersweet, chocolatey intensity, and the apple brandy gives it a romantic heat!  Serve by firelight or at sunset with an open heart and perhaps a dish of vanilla ice cream with caramelized apples and candied pecans.


This wine is a collaboration with Theo Chocolate, an organic fair-trade company in Seattle that makes the most amazing chocolate bars, and the "cacao" in the wine is single-sourced from their fair-trade Congolese cacao farms.   


On cacao from the Congo:


"Theo…recognized an opportunity to help the region emerge from crisis by joining forces with local farmers to cultivate cocoa. This fast-growing, high-yield crop requires minimal re-planting, prevents deforestation, commands solid global prices, and is a major source of income for women. Cocoa is also considered “militia-proof” because its true value isn’t realized until it’s processed." 


You can learn more about the Cacao production and sourcing on Theo's website:
