ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - Can't choose between your love for wine and chocolate? You no longer have to!

Two long-time family-owned businesses in Roanoke announced a new partnership so customers can enjoy both delights.

The newly renovated Wine Gourmet located in the Promenade Park Shopping Center is partnering with ChocolatePaper by adding a ChocolatePaper Express Boutique.

In addition to selling wine, there will be dozens of truffles and chocolates, hundreds of greeting cards, and other ChocolatePaper signature items.

"Seemed like it was a natural fit two pair wine with chocolates so who better to pair with than ChocolatePaper?" said Wine Gourmet owner Brian Powell.

Stan McCulloch, the owner of ChocolatePaper, shared his excitement in the new partnership, "We've had interest in offering wine for a long time, and we approached them, and they were excited about it, so here we are!"

To showcase the new ChocolatePaper Express, Wine Gourmet will host an open house on March 22 from 5 to 8 p.m.
