Members receive one bottle of seasonally inspired wine and two different gourmet chocolate bars each month. Artfully Chocolate also holds a member reception on the last Wednesday of every month in its Old Town location, which allows members to sample the wine and chocolates they’ll be receiving before picking up their treats. Buyers can activate their membership by reserving a spot at one of the receptions at least two weeks in advance; in subsequent months, they can arrange to pick up their goods at Artfully Chocolate's storefront or attend that month's reception.
Part art gallery, part cocoa bar, Artfully Chocolate was established in 2007 when owner Eric Nelson quit his job as an executive in order to pursue his artistic passions. Needing a little something extra to draw attention to his shop and unwilling to sound a tornado siren after every purchase, Eric called on the services of friend and chocolatier Rob Kingsbury. Kingsbury instantly infused the colorful gallery with the sweet allure Eric was seeking.
Today, the duo's handiwork takes center stage inside two different locations: Eric's masterpieces parade across the walls, and Rob's expertise reveals itself in sips and bites of decadent drinks and pastries. They also host tasting classes, including a wine-pairing class and chocolate-tasting class.
