How to Pair Wine & Chocolate

In our final chapter of this fall series, we want to show you how easy it is to pair your favourite wines and chocolate!

This month: DARK chocolate.

Consider other ingredients in your chocolate.

If your chocolate contains ingredients such as nuts, fruit, or caramel, consider how these flavours will play with the wine. For example, a chocolate studded with dried cranberries might pair well with a fruit forward red with berry undertones.

OUR RECOMMENDATIONS

Need some inspiration? Here are a few of our favourite wine and chocolate pairings!

DARK CHOCOLATE

pairs well with Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot

Bitter to semi-sweet chocolates that are 50 to 100% cacao have intense, bitter flavours, and earthy to fruity undertones. Match the intensity without adding more dryness by pairing these chocolates with full-bodied, yet fruit-forward wines.

We hope we have given you some inspiration so you can now host your own wine/chocolate pairing evening this holiday season. We have ALL your chocolate needs covered! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
