Chocolate, just like wine, has its geeks.

Chocolate, just like wine, has its geeks.

Dark or milk, 35 percent or 70 percent cacao, earthy, acidic and nutty are terms any serious chocoholic knows.

It's a good time of year for them, too. Grapevine is hosting the sixth annual Chocolate Fest this weekend, and more than 20 chocolatiers in Dallas-Fort Worth are bringing goodies.

Even better, all proceeds will go to Travelers Aid Dallas/Fort Worth, a nonprofit that helps people at D/FW Airport and in the surrounding cities.

The first event is from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday at La Buena Vida Vineyards. Chocolates, hors d'oeuvres and wine will be served for guests, who can participate in a silent auction and walk away with a souvenir wineglass. Admission: $35 in advance; $40 at the door.

On Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Palace Arts Center downtown, people can sample chocolate and see art on exhibit and for sale. Admission is $14 in advance and $15 at the door and includes 10 samples.
