Roving Sommelier loves dessert wines and stickies. Award-winning sommelier Robert Giorgione also has many years of experience of matching sweet things and chocolate to dessert wines. While working in London, he teamed up with award-winning chocolatier William Curley and hosted many chocolate and wine tastings at their chocolate shop and dessert bar in Belgravia. In addition, in October 2012 under the guise of Team William Curley, Robert teamed up with Head Pastry Chef Sarah Frankland to win the UK Roussillon Dessert Trophy in London and as representing the UK they both won the European Roussillon Dessert Trophy held in Perpignan, France in April 2013.
Roving Sommelier has now teamed up with top Leeds-based chocolatier Stephen Trigg of Lauden Chocolate and has matched some amazing dessert wines with their exquisite chocolates that are available to buy. Showing our passion and knowledge for our craft and experience with food and wine matching, Roving Sommelier has put together an interesting selection for you to discover and enjoy.
