Wine & Chocolate Pairings!
It’s that time of year again where we engage in a romantic evening with our loved ones. What could be better to go along with your sweetheart’s favorite chocolate than your favorite Messina Hof wine? When pairing wine with chocolate, grabbing a bottle of a light flavored wine with a light chocolate will result in the best pairs! Try beginning the night with a white chocolate and working slowly into a dark chocolate. Here are some tips for pairing the right wine with different types of chocolates.
White Chocolate Wine Suggestions
Milk Chocolate Wine Suggestions
Try Pinot Noir or Merlot for a bar of milk chocolate or a chocolate mousse or cheesecake. For mild milk chocolates, try a dessert wine like Riesling or Muscat Canelli. For chocolate covered strawberries, a sparkling wine or Champagne is a great match.
