To further enhance the experience, CAILLER has partnered with renowned San Francisco-based restaurateur and sommelier, Shelley Lindgren, to pair California wines with pieces from the CAILLER Signature Selection and its brand new, limited-time-only Winter Selection.

"There is no better synergy – especially in California – than a premium Swiss chocolate that has been perfected over generations and the rich flavors of wine, " says Shelley.  "It's a perfect pair just in time for the holidays and I'm thrilled to help share the CAILLER story with fellow San Franciscans."

The San Francisco retail experience will take residence at 117 Post Street, San Francisco, and will be open to the public from December 15 to 21st (specific times below).
