Chocolate and Wine together. Seriously?

Posted on May 8, 2008 9:56 AM by Admin

Last night at the factory, we hosted a Chocolate and Wine pairing as a fundraiser for a local group, Queen City Police Foundation. At the event, 2 whites and 2 reds were paired specifically with an individual chocolate. Now, I know people are pairing wine with everything these days but I was still uncertain how the flavors were going to match up. I’ve only ever had solid dark chocolate with red wine.

Our local wine experts worked with our chocolate truffles and nuts to find the perfect match and here is what we had –

Prosecco with Milk Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts
Riesling with Grande Valencia Truffles
Monastrell with White Raspberry Truffles
Cabernet Sauvignon with 70% Dark Chocolate Truffles

Each wine and chocolate on it’s own was delightful, as one would expect. However, paired together, they were truly delicious. Who knew these flavors would work so well in tandem? So, here’s a tip. Next time you have a special gathering to host – bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, girls night, workplace social – why not try something new like a chocolate and wine pairing. Simply offering one or two of these to your guests will move your event from just another party to something memorable. But watch out, your guests will come to expect it!
