Perfect wine and chocolate pairings this Valentine's Day
This Valentine’s Day there should be only one thing you have on your mind. That of course being wine… okay maybe love is important too. Whether you’re sharing a romantic meal or having a night in with your friends, there’s a good chance that wine is a part of your Valentine’s Day tradition. As heart-shaped chocolates line the shelves, wine lovers are on the lookout to seek out the perfect bottle to share with a loved one.
While cheese is a classic pairing, there's something special and romantic about combining wine with chocolate. If you've never explored this delightful duo, you might wonder about how you pair the two. Can't we simply uncork the bottle, unwrap the chocolate, and enjoy? While that's an option, understanding which chocolates complement specific wines can help create a tasting experience like no other, making this Valentine’s Day one to remember.
Fortunately, we’re here to guide you on a journey to discover the perfect wine and chocolate pairings this Valentine's Day. Whether you're a novice or an aficionado, our curated selection ensures a delightful tasting experience. And for those unsure where to begin, fear not. We offer a unique Chocolate and Wine Tasting Pack, specially crafted for this romantic occasion.
From velvety reds paired with rich dark chocolate to crisp whites complementing creamy milk chocolate, there's a perfect match for every palate. Here are some of our favourite pairings that you need to try this Valentine's Day!
Shiraz with dark chocolate
Pairing our rich Shiraz with dark chocolate creates a sensory symphony perfect for Valentine's Day indulgence. The Shiraz's notes of black pepper and warm spice beautifully complement the rich intensity found in dark chocolate. We recommend dark chocolate with 50%-60% cocoa content or berry-infused flavours like freeze-dried raspberries or luscious strawberry fillings to really help compliment the shiraz.
Verdelho and chilli chocolate
Pairing our Verdelho with spicy, chilli chocolate is a match made for those with an adventurous palate. A perfect combination for a fun date night, Verdelho’s fruit-driven profile provides a perfect balance to the fiery spice of the chocolate. A harmonious blend of sweetness, bitterness, and spice, this combination tantalises the taste buds with a mouthwatering sensation that lingers long after each sip and bite. For those seeking a bold and unforgettable Valentine's Day treat, this dynamic pairing promises to ignite the senses and emotions of you and your special someone.
