Can’t choose whether to give your loved one chocolate or wine this weekend? New Zealand winemaker Invivo has you covered.
In a world first, the innovative winery has launched SauvEGGnon Blanc: an artisan dark chocolate Easter egg, filled with premium New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
Invivo chief winemaker Rob Cameron says that for him, this is a dream come true. “This is really why I started making wine. Everyone loves chocolate, and everyone loves Sauvignon Blanc. Until now, though, you’ve had to choose between the two. Not any more.”
Invivo co-founder Tim Lightbourne says Invivo SauvEGGnon Blanc could be just the first in a range of chocolate-wine mashups. “With Cadbury pulling production out of New Zealand this month, we’ve already started work on Pinot-apple Lumps… so watch this space!”
Invivo SauvEGGnon Blanc eggs are a limited edition and will be available for sale at the winery until midday on 1 April 2018. Please note that due to the Easter public holiday, the winery will be closed on that day.
