The Rockwellist, Power Plant Mall’s expanded digital pop-up played host to an exquisite wine and chocolate pairing event last Saturday, November 25, 2023, at the Sales Pavilion, at Nara Residences. Nara Residences is Rockwell’s first property in Bacolod located along GM Cordova Avenue, in Mandalagan. 

This affair was curated and led by none other than Christian Valdes, the visionary creator behind CMV Txokolat, and featured special wines selected by Txanton’s sommelier. This collaboration brought a blend of indulgence and refined taste, to Bacolod’s discerning community. 

The esteemed guests were treated to an unparalleled experience of harmonizing the finest of wines with artisanal chocolates, guided by Christian Valdes himself. The chocolate used in this pairing session was a special curation by The Rockwellist, CMV Txokolat, and Chef Rhea Garcia-Fernandez, Head Chef and owner of Bacolod-based artisanal bakery, Firehook Boulangerie Et Patisserie, soon to rise at The Pavilions at Nara. These confections feature Bacolod favorites such as Piaya, Kanlaon Coffee, and Barquiron, with an innovative twist. 

This exclusive confection set is available for purchase at or at The Rockwellist pop-up at The Pavilions at Nara, allowing enthusiasts to savor these unique flavors at their leisure.

As the Bacolod community continues to revel in the festive season, The Rockwellist promises more exciting events every weekend.
