Episode 12: Vegan Wine Discussion and Local Chocolate Review

Webly and Jess sit down with Jess, a local vegan and professional wine steward, for an in-depth conversation about wine.  Jess, the wine steward, touches upon her personal favorites, what isn’t vegan about a lot of wine, food pairings, regional wines, and more.

All three vegans also sample an array of chocolates purchased from local chocolatiers, and review in detail.  Missionary’s chocolate mint truffle, Sahagun’s brand new Stumptown pure coffee bar, and Alma’s fig and marzipan chocolate, were among the favorites!

Show Notes:


Chocolate Review:

Of course, there are more vegan chocolates available around town, and our selection was limited to what we were able to buy in time.  Please let us know if you have other local favorites to recommend!

  1. Thanks for the kind words about Barnivore! We’ve been working really hard at keeping up to date over the past year and have lots of exciting plans for 2010!

    As a heads up, we do have Three Buck Chuck in the list, but until just a few minutes ago you would have had to search for Charles Shaw (the official name) – that’s been fixed, and as of today (Feb 9 2010) the reds are vegan friendly but the whites are not.

    Thanks for such an entertaining podcast!
