3 Tips for Pairing Chocolate and Wine

Chocolate and wine would hold precious spots on many people’s list of favorite things. Pair them together, and you have magic. Tessa Halstead of Chocolaterie Tessa visited Studio 512 with a chocolate and wine tasting to remember. Adding a little bit of chocolate will liven up the party, and will surely entertain. There are 3 keys to pairing wine and chocolate if you want to try a tasting at home. The first is to taste light to dark. This allows you to taste the more subtle flavors before your palate is overwhelmed by the strongest flavors. Another suggestion is to use sweeter wines. This will help emphasize some of the flavor of the chocolate instead of creating a contrast. The last is to pair like with like, so milder wines with milder chocolates.
