The idea of pairing chocolate and wine isn’t anything new, but serving a chocolate-dipped wine bottle definitively is. And that’s exactly what one new Easton storefront is offering.
Bliss in a Bottle officially opened for business on Oct. 21. The new shop is located adjacent to the Grand Stairway inside the Easton Station building.
According to owner Cheryl Sher, who previously operated a specialty shop called Sher Bliss Wine & Chocolates, the idea for the concept came to her after pairing wine and chocolate together for years in her old store.

“I would always sell the wine next to chocolates, and I kept thinking that there had to be a way to combine them,” she said.
Patrons can grab bottles like a pinot noir coated in dark chocolate and dusted with raspberry powder, or a chardonnay dipped in milk chocolate with toasted toffee pieces and a peanut butter drizzle.
The Easton store also offers beer bottles–like an imperial stout from Epic Brewing coated in chocolate, peanut butter drizzle and espresso powder–spirit bottles, and non-alcoholic options, like a glass Coke bottle dipped in Belgian chocolate with vanilla bean and cherry powder.
No matter what you choose, you can rest assured all the flavor pairings offered in the Easton store have been personally vetted by Sher.
Bliss in a Bottle was created in November 2013, and previously operated a location inside Polaris Fashion Place. The concept later expanded through Ohio and into Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina, but all of its storefronts closed following the outbreak of COVID. The new Easton store is the concept’s only retail storefront currently.
