Check out our pairing list and get ready to indulge!
Chocolate & Sea Salt + Verdejo
White wine goes wonderfully with salty foods and the combination of this Spanish Verdejo with a sea salt milk chocolate will unlock a wonderful new world of flavors.
Cherry Cordials + Tempranillo
The brown sugar components of this tempranillo beautifully accent the cherry cordial with its bold and smooth palate.
Caramel-filled Chocolate + Lambrusco
The slight sweetness of this lambrusco compliments the sweet, salty, fat and bitter flavors of the caramel chocolate quite harmoniously.
Dark Chocolate + Banyuls
The polyphenols in dark chocolate mirror those in wine and give both a somewhat bitter taste which is what this banyuls pairs perfectly with.
Chocolate Strawberries + Moscato D’Asti
The sparkly, light sweetness of this Moscato D’Asti is an excellent palate cleanser to the strawberry’s ripe juiciness.
Hersey Kisses + Champagne
A dry finish to the sweetness of a kiss can be quire refreshing! This Champagne is perfect due to its lack of added sugar.
White Chocolate + Pinot Noir
While white chocolate isn’t technically a true chocolate due to its lack of cacao, it is one of the few chocolate-like sweets that pair well with a dry red wine like this pinot noir.
