Wine & Chocolate Pairings
Chocolate is one of America's favorite flavors, and wine has surpassed beer as America's favorite sip. It's no wonder the two taste great together. When you serve them side by side, you're sure to please your guests.
Make the perfect match
Boost the fruit factor with red "Zin": The union of berries and chocolate is heavenly. A jammy, berry-packed red zinfandel and chocolate partner beautifully.
Pass the port, please: Consider how luscious chocolate tastes with nuts and caramels, and you can imagine just how great it goes with a nutty, caramely tawny port. Dark chocolates go especially well with the fruit and spice of ruby port.
Work the whites: The boldness of dark chocolates overwhelms most white wines. Your best bet is to sip a late-harvest Riesling or ice wine while nibbling on white chocolates.
