A Perfect Pairing: Macarons & Wine

No matter the season, Kim Moehnke, the owner of Pure Love Macarons, raises a glass to celebrate the pairing of macarons and wine in Northern Virginia’s wine region.  For every occassion from bridal showers to winter hostess parties, Kim and her Pure Love Macarons provide a plethora of ideas to entertain and delight your guests.
