Chocolate and Wine Pairings

0

When you match the right wine with the right chocolate, you get to experience

the rich complexities of both. As a rule, dark chocolates tend to pair

well with fuller bodied wine such as Zinfandels and Cabernets and milk

chocolates pair better with lighter wines such as Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc.

Rules of course are made to be broken so indulge in your own tastes

and mix and match the chocolates to your favorite wine.
