Wine & Chocolate

Posted by Olivia Cox on 8th Mar 2021

For decades, wine and chocolate have seemed to be a go-to pairing, but is that combination still relevant today?The key to pairing chocolate with wine is to not only understand the wine but also to consider the flavor profile of the chocolate.

Wine and chocolate both have antioxidants, tannins, and both go through a fermentation process (whether as a grape or as cocoa) so theoretically, why wouldn't all wine and chocolate work? The history of chocolate dates back to the ancient Mayans; it was initially considered to be a bitter, rather than a sweet snack. Over time, sugar and milk were added to the ancient recipe, thus resulting in the creamy milk chocolate that we all know and love.

Wine is a product of fermented grape juice, with a few additives mixed in to get the perfect result. Some wines, like Moscato or an Auslese Riesling, have more residual sugars left in the bottle than that of a Nebbiolo, which pairs up well with different chocolates. Overall, there are countless ways to pair wine and chocolate, and just to save you the unintentional headache, we made it simple for you!
