A wine and chocolate pairing is one of the most simple—yet elegant— ways to celebrate love day. This year, if you’re looking for something a bit more elevated than your typical milk and dark chocolate pairings, go for these unique and delicious options.
The inspiration behind this pairing comes from none other than the sweet-meets-salty Almond Joy. Our CA Almond Sparkling Wine is decadently bubbly and aromatic with notes of toasted almond and a delicately sweet but lingering finish. The flavor contrast of a salted dark chocolate pairing is sure to make your sweetheart swoon.
Our Hospitality Cabernet Sauvignon is filled with beautiful mixed berry and vanilla aromatics along with hints of violet and chocolate. We opted for a Raspberry Dark Chocolate pairing for this wine, as the perfectly tart raspberries balance out this rich and ripe Napa Valley inspired Cabernet.
Our Vintner Chardonnay is layered with vanilla cream and intense citrus aromas. With a pairing of hand-dipped chocolate candied oranges, we’re able to bring out those bright tree fruits of the Chardonnay. This wine is reminiscent of Meyer lemons, pears, opal apples, and Seville oranges and this pairing works to accentuate all of those lovely citrus elements.
During February, we find that balance means wine in one hand, chocolate in the other. They say all you need is love and we agree. But a little bit of wine and chocolate doesn’t hurt, either.
