Earth and Sky Chocolates of Calistoga will be participating in “The Art of Chocolate” at the Napa Valley Museum from Feb. 10 through April 1, and a special celebration with chocolate and wine tastings will be held Feb. 10 beginning at 5:30 p.m.
“The Art of Chocolate is a free after-hours reception, where attendees can view works of art in chocolate and learn about chocolate — where it comes from, how it is made and how it is used. Wristbands will be available for purchase for those who want to sample the chocolates from the participating chocolatiers, and a separate wristband will be available for those who want to taste the wines,” said Laura Rafaty, the museum’s executive director. “Calistoga’s own Earth and Sky will be participating, and owner Laura Koerth will be there in person.”
The Art of Chocolate features Napa Valley’s finest chocolatiers, including Earth and Sky, Woodhouse Chocolates, and the CIA at Copia, who take inspiration from the museum’s Julia Child “France is a Feast” exhibit to create delicious works of art in chocolate. A portion of boxed chocolate sales Feb. 10 through April 1, for Valentine’s Day and Easter, benefit the museum.
Napa Valley Museum is located at 55 Presidents Circle, Yountville. The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m.to 4 p.m. closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and all major holidays. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and kids 16 and under, and free for members.
