Never had a wine and chocolate tasting before. 5 dollars would get your 6 wine tastings and 5 pieces of homemade chocolate. Not a huge fan of dark chocolate, but they knew what to pair it with and it was great. Our favorite chocolate was the caramel filled one! And our favorite wine was the cherry one. Tasted just like...

Second visit to sample local wines and gourmet chocolates. Boat visit not available due to river conditions but we sampled the wines, chocolates and purchased a variety of bottles for our hotel room. Eric & Kaitlyn were excellent servers and went into great detail about the wines, the chocolate pairings, etc. Knowledgeable and great people skills/customer service. Highly recommend, especially...

My friends and I visited this location for their indoor wine and chocolate tasting. It was wonderful. The wine and candy were so delicious. I bought two bottles of wine to bring home and a unique gift for my father-in-law. Cute store with many things to view. And, the staff was so nice!!

Never had a chocolate wine tasting before but it was fun. Wine I normally wouldn't bother with tasted great with the hand made chocolates. Staff was amusing and attentive. I really didn't care for the wine on its own but their chocolate are amazing! Bought some truffles that were beyond good.

Went with a friend for this cruise. It's an hour long. You get 5 samples of wine and 5 chocolates, then you pick the one you like the most and get a glass of it. Very relaxing trip and you get a nice history lesson of Frankenmuth. Been there many times but learned a few things. Highly recommend this for... More

This was our first trip to Frankenmuth. We being 9 of us in the family decided to take the Wine and Chocolate cruise. This was a nice lazy trip down the river with John as the boat captain and Nicole as the wine steward. They both had great personalities and knowledge of the wine and the area. They were able...
