Wine and Chocolate Pairings to Impress Your Guests

Hi everyone,

We know our readers love fashion, travel and FOOD! This week, we’re sharing with you a great article written by Erica Daniels for ProFlowers which is about chocolate and wine pairing… mmMMM! If you’ve ever had a chocolate and wine tasting… you know what I’m talking about 🙂

I’m definitely looking most forward to trying “sea salt chocolate” paired with pinot noir or merlot! Check out the post below:

Pairing wine and chocolate can be a contentious point for wine connoisseurs. The rich, bold tastes of both makes marrying them difficult. In order to make sure you can highlight accents of the wine as well as the chocolate, check out the shareable guide below. We also researched a few basic rules that will help simplify the complicated business of tannins with tastes.

Chocolate has an array of strong flavors including sweet, bitter, fruity, and even acidic. These tastes do not pair well with standard dry table wine. Regardless of how lovely a bottle of wine it is, after a bite of a rich chocolate bar it won’t have any flavor. Try a sweet dessert wine instead! The comparable richness will enhance the taste of both. In case you really like the amalgamation, you can ask your wine club (click here to learn more about wine subscriptions) for a customized subscription. One, with which you can receive a different dessert wine every week to be paired with your chocolate combination.

Basic wine and chocolate pairing rules:

  1. The wine should be as sweet as the chocolate.
  2. Begin pairing by color. The darker the chocolate, the darker the wine.
  3. When possible, opt for a high quality chocolate bar.
  4. Consider texture as well as taste.
