Well look who decided to show up in Colorado….the sun! Finally, after the rainiest spring in 40 years, it looks like we might have a moment to enjoy a glass of wine and a few chocolates on the patio. But what to pair? Luckily, we’ve been studying this question for years at The Chocolate Therapist, and we have a few ideas that will make even the most prudent connoisseur happy. The suggested chocolates are all from our shop (we specialize in all-natural chocolates to pair with wine and spirits), but feel free to use this as a guideline for your favorites.
Red wine and chocolate pairings
Red blend (try rum-barrel aged Three Finger Jack from Lodi): milk chocolate mulling spice (ginger & cinnamon), dark chocolate black cherry, milk chocolate amaretto, dark chocolate sangria
Red zinfandel: dark chocolate chili pepper
Pinot Noir: dark or milk chocolate peanut butter
Tawny Port: milk chocolate cinnamon pecans, dark chocolate with espresso
White wine and chocolate pairings
Sauvignon blanc: milk chocolate key lime, dark chocolate raspberry
Riesling: milk chocolate apricot, dark chocolate plum
Pinot gris: milk chocolate orange, dark chocolate black cherry
Chardonnay: don’t do it unless you’ve had at least 3 glasses of wine, or maybe milk chocolate orange 🙂
The Chocolate Therapist makes handcrafted, all-natural chocolate. There are no dyes, sugar-filled centers, preservatives, soy, or artificial ingredients in anything we make. We’re committed to creating clean-ingredient chocolate for you. Thank you for supporting small business!
