Bubbly Bites

After the success of Moonstruck Chocolate’s Willamette Valley Winery Collection, the chocolatier has now added bubbly, too.

The new truffle series features Argyle Winery’s estate-grown sparkling wines. The collection showcases two truffles: white chocolate surrounding a ganache made with Argyle 2015 Vintage Brut; and milk chocolate enrobing 2015 Black Brut — it contains 1.7% alcohol by volume, so consumers must be 21 years of age to indulge.

The Argyle Sparkling Wine Collection retails for $12 and is available at Moonstruck Chocolate stores, Argyle’s Dundee tasting room, select retailers and online at
