MURPHYS — Gary Zucca of Zucca Wines is hosting a Port and dessert wine pairing with chocolates, sweet treats and cheese on Thursday, Feb. 9, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Murphys Historic Hotel, 457 Main St.

It is his fifth consecutive year of providing “Sweets for your Sweet” for the Calaveras Winegrapes Association. Zucca will begin the evening with salty cheeses that go really well with dessert wine.”

We’ll be pairing white, milk, semi-sweet and bittersweet chocolates with a number of local dessert wines and Ports,” he explained. “Everyone knows that chocolate and Port go really well together, but there is so much more you can do with sweet pairings.”

Eat dessert first, and end the evening with dinner at the hotel and a $5 discount off each entrée.”

The cost is $20 for CWA members and $25 for non-members. For more information, call 728-9467.
