Wine and Chocolate Gift Baskets Create Delicious Pairings Ideas

We had the pleasure recently of adding quite a bit more Wine and Chocolate Gift Baskets to our wine gift baskets collection, and we’re pleased to announce that we’re now able to ship wine directly to your door, opening up a whole new window of wine gift basket options! Speaking of options – wine and cheese tends to be the go-to wine pairing, but chocolate has taken on a decidedly gourmet form over the last few years. Wine and chocolate pairings are more popular than ever, and we’re here to share some delicious wine and chocolate coupling ideas with you!

Wine and Milk Chocolate Pairings

It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t love the smooth taste of milk chocolate – it just seems to conjure up happiness! Choose a few of your favorite milk chocolate candy bars, and stick with wines like a Pinot Noir, a Reisling, dessert wines, or even a sparkling wine. These are all lighter wines that will accent, but not overpower, the chocolate.

Wine and Dark Chocolate Pairings

We’ve been hearing so much about the health benefits of dark chocolate, and when you pair them with the reported benefits of red wine, well, we’ve got a wine coupling that’s good for us, too (in moderation, of course)! Dark chocolate has a very strong flavor, so you need a full-bodied wine to go with it. Go for a Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, or a Pinot Noir.

Wine and White Chocolate Pairings

Take a bite into a white chocolate bar…mmm. Doesn’t it just seem to have a buttery flavor? Think “fun” when you’re choosing a wine to pair it with – namely, a sweet or dessert wine. A Sherry or a Moscato wine is fabulous for it. Want to walk on the wild side? Pair it with its alter ego – a Zinfandel. The coupling of these two tend to balance each other’s “rough edges” out.

Move over wine and cheese – wine and chocolate pairings are a fun, gourmet alternative to traditional wine couplings. Many of our Wine Gift Baskets feature gourmet chocolates, so the gift recipient will be all ready to enjoy wine and chocolate pairings – courtesy of your thoughtfulness!
