On National Chocolate day it's only right that we pay tribute and toast not only to Chocolate girls but to the decadence that is Cocoa! When pairing chocolate with wine you want to make sure that the chocolate is not sweeter than your wine so that the wine won't taste bitter. Today is also a good excuse to buy the GOOD chocolate (which pairs better with wine than a cheap chocolate candy any day).
Here's a list of wines that you can't go wrong pairing with your favorite chocolate treat.
White Chocolate pairs with: Moscato, Chardonnay, Sherry
Milk Chocolate pairs with: Merlot, Pinot Noir, Riesling
Dark Chocolate pairs with: Cabernet Sauvignon, Port, Zinfandel
Bittersweet Chocolate pairs with: Malbec, Shiraz, Bordeaux
