Wine and Chocolate Pairings Tested


Winning Pairings

Port and Dark Chocolate Truffle Pairing

Ruby Port and Chocolate Truffles

This is a classic pairing, and highly recommended!

When you pair the dark chocolate truffles with the ruby port, they actually start to create a new taste together on your palate. It’s really amazing to taste, because it changes into this creamy chocolate-raspberry flavor in your mouth.

White Chocolate and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc Pairing

New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and White Chocolate

This is an off-the-wall pairing and it blew my mind!

New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs these days often have notes of passion fruit in their taste profiles. So, we took this idea and paired a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with white chocolate to see what would happen. It was unbelievable! The wine and white chocolate together created a flavor not dissimilar to passion fruit ice cream. Highly recommended, again.
