Laurie & Michael Forster taste wine and talk Chocolate Covered Strawberries. Chances are, if you have a valentine (or even if you don’t) you are going to be indulging in some chocolate on Cupid’s Day. This might lead you to the question, “What wine should I pair with my chocolate hearts and truffles? Find out some of their thoughts in this video.
It’s important to note that a good pairing will depend on the type of chocolate you’re savoring. Overall, you want to match bolder, darker chocolates with bigger wines and lighter, sweeter chocolates, like white or milk, with lighter wines. In my opinion, sweet and fortified wines work better with chocolate than dry wines. Before you start writing letters to disagree with me—I do acknowledge that there are some dry red wines, like Cabernet or Zinfandel that can work wonderfully.
