Chocolate, Port and Cigar Pairing at the Casa Montecristo in Altos de Chavón!

This post is also available in: Spanish

This Friday the 12th of August, the night before the Fundación MIR Family Weekend for Life event (click here for more info), there is a number of events going on in Casa de Campo Dominican Republic, in the Marina Casa de Campo as well as in Altos de Chavón! One such event (which I will be attending) is the ‘Maridaje de Chocolate, Oporto y Cigarros’ (chocolate, port and cigar pairing) at the Casa Montecristo Cigar Store and Lounge in Altos de Chavón.

The event being organized by the Casa Montecristo with the world’s largest hand-rolled cigar factory the Tabacalera de Garcia will no doubt be wonderful – I personally love chocolate and port and although I’m not the biggest fan of cigars I know some people who do, so I am sure I will be very well accompanied!

Also happening this Friday the 12th of August is the debut party for the ‘Notte Pershing’, the new Pershing ’64 yacht, which will be making it’s virgin appearance in the Dominican Republic and will be celebrated with a party at the Casa de Campo Yacht Club with hosts ERH Marine and sponsors Grey Goose Vodka. This event starts at 7pm but will continue until 1am – so you can go and enjoy it after the Maridaje!
