Wine and chocolate pairing kind of seemed too good to be true. But I had to know - is the combination actually any good? The first thing I considered when pairing chocolate with wine is that there are very different styles of chocolate and I wanted to think about what the main things are that would create a great pairing.
So the things that we know about chocolate are that a) there are a lot of different styles creating different flavors b) it tends to be bitter and c) many are sweet.
When I did a Halloween candy and wine pairing video last fall I tested out typical kids candy types and one viewer Deborah asked that we do something with gourmet chocolates, so for this, I picked out a few enticing kinds of chocolate.
