A Sweet Flavor Medley of Flavor

Despite the general fondness for both wine and chocolate, sometimes the rich flavors of each can be conflicting. That’s why wine and chocolate parings can be quite challenging to match up. Luckily for you, there are wine and chocolate pairings that will incite a standing ovation.

For your convenience, we have included 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.
