Ultimate Sweets and Wine Pairing Guide


Hold the cheese, please. 

Why not try something sweeter with your next glass of wine? We’ve got pairing ideas for your favorite sweets and wines right here.

First, some pro tips:

  • As a rule, the darker the chocolate or richer the sweet, the darker and richer the wine.
  • “Break your chocolate bar into small bite-size pieces. Listen for the ‘snap.’ –the crisper the break, the better tempered your chocolate is. Don’t chew your chocolate, just place it on your tongue and let it melt in.” – winefolly.com
