Chocolate Sommelier at The Ritz-Carlton, Vienna



Lobby Lounge Melounge at The Ritz-Carlton, Vienna offers a delicious new experience for guests who love chocolate. Every day from 3.00 – 6.00 p.m. it’s chocolate time and a very exclusive hot chocolate is served by a Chocolate Sommelier.

Our Chocolate Sommelier offers a variety of chocolate chips from different kinds of chocolate to the guest to make his selection. The chocolate is then prepared in little copper pots with water to ensure the best flavor. Only afterwards the guest may add some milk or cream if he so wishes. The chocolate is served with a variety of fresh fruit to support the unique flavor.

The chocolate sommelier explains: „We only use the most exclusive chocolate which is produced from Criollo cocoa beans. They come from different countries like Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela or Madagascar and have a different taste accordingly. Only 0,001% of the world harvest of cocoa derives from those precious beans.”

The Chocolate Sommelier also offers to add different spices like tonka beans, chili or pepper or a dash of liquor like Grand Marnier or Kaluha to the chocolate. This way every guest has his very own personalized delicious chocolate experience at The Ritz-Carlton, Vienna.

At Lobby Lounge Melounge, every day from 3.00 – 6.00 pm
