I was recently interviewed by NBC Bay Area’s The Feast about how to pair wine with chocolate.
Want the CliffsNotes version? Here are the main points I discussed:
* Make sure the wine you’re drinking is as sweet as the chocolate.
* Milk chocolates work well with Tawny Ports, like Dow’s 20-Year.
* Dark chocolates jive with big berry-flavored wines such as Zinfandel, which has the taste of raspberry and black cherry.
* Experiment. Play around. It’s all about having fun!
Here’s to drinking with heart!
