Orange County’s B. toffee and the OC Wine Mart in Irvine are teaming up to bring you a luxury toffee and wine tasting experience featuring wines from Justin Vineyards in Paso Robles. On Friday, June 7th, guests are invited to explore the flavor profiles of handcrafted toffee and artisanal cheese, with fine California wines, in two tasting sessions, at 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., each $25 (plus tax), at the OC Wine Mart (2272 Michelson Drive, Irvine).

The wines of Justin Vineyards will highlight and complement the luxurious ingredients of B. toffee. Guests will embark on a tasting journey as they experience select varietals from the Paso winery. The featured pairing will involve B. toffee with Justin’s Obtuse, an estate-grown, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon dessert wine crafted in the style of traditional Port. The sweet, full-bodied berry jam flavors that predominate on entry will highlight B. toffee’s premium chocolates, while the coffee, chocolate, and mild sweet tobacco accents on the mid-palate will play up B. toffee’s buttery caramel flavors.

Reservations for either session can be made through OC Wine Mart by emailing Owner Julie Lim at julie@ocwinemartshop.com or (714) 785-5451.

“We are so thrilled to have OC Wine Mart host this event with B. toffee alongside a winery that can truly complement the flavors of our toffee,” explained Betsy Thagard, whose toffee can be purchased at Irvine’s OC Wine Mart . “Justin Vineyards produces beautifully complex wines that create the perfect pairing for B. toffee.”
