Guylian Chocolate and Sparkling Wine

25th March 2022

Sparkling Wine and Chocolate Pairing

Sparkling Wine and Chocolate is one of those combinations that is very much a love or hate, to the people Sparkling Wine and Chocolate may sound very romantic and delicious, but to industry professionals, the combination sometimes causes disagreements.

So I will leave it up to you to decide whether Sparkling Wine and Chocolate is a combination that you will try.

“Pioneer of the Belgian Sea Shells since 1958”

The Guylian Chocolate story begins in 1938, with the birth of Guy Foubert, who grow up to be a passionate Belgian chocolatier. Guylian Chocolate as a brand came into the world when Guy married Liliane in 1958, one of the many reasons they fell in love was they both had a passion for life’s sweetest pleasures, including Chocolate, so they decided to join their names to create Chocolaterie Guy-lian, the Seahorse Chocolate we all know and love.

Guylian Chocolate is one of the top ten best selling boxed Chocolate brands in the world, we can find their chocolate sold in over 120 countries across Europe, Asia, Australia and America

Their chocolate is produced in Sint-Niklaas, Belgium, the birthplace of Guy Foubert, they produce up to 75 tonnes of Chocolate every day, with a team of 250 employess and in 2015 they turned over 80 million euros.

When buying a box of Guylian Chocolate, you don’t just get a box of delicious Chocolate, you’re also helping Project SeahorseGuylian Chocolate has been the main sponsor of Project Seahorse since 1998, donating € 1.75 million, allowing them to protect seahorses and the oceans in which they live.
