Why Pair Chocolate with Wine?
Both fine wine and premium chocolate have complex flavors that are worth savoring. Enjoying chocolate and wine together creates a delicious harmony of tastes and textures.
Scharffen Berger Chocolate and Wine: The Perfect Pair
Before he became a chocolate-maker, John Scharffenberger was one of California’s most respected wine makers. He approached chocolate with the same sophisticated palate and attention to detail. That’s why Scharffen Berger chocolates are perfect for wine pairings: each one has a nuanced flavor profile that rivals those of the finest wines.
What to Pair with Scharffen Berger Assortments
Lighter wines generally go with sweeter chocolate, while more full-bodied wines pair well with the higher cacao varieties. But don’t let this rule of thumb keep you from trying other combinations. Your palate is as unique as your fingerprints, and you just might discover unexpected pleasures.
