Indulge yourself in the divine and luxurious world of Chocolate and Wine.
Ever thought chocolate doesn’t go with wine unless it is sweet or fortified, like Port or Sherry? Well, mostly, this is true, especially if you are eating the chocolate on its own, but what if you use it as part of the main dish at dinner? Like using Cocoa powder as a main component of a spice rub for ribs or a steak. Or using chocolate for a savoury sauce?
This is where, with a little knowledge, you could add a wine that will simply complete that meal for you and your guests, such as an old vine Zinfandel or perhaps, a spicy Barossa Valley Shiraz, with it’s deep flavours of sweet black-fruits that are so typical from the high quality vines that grow in their hot continental climate and which thrive in the unique Terra Rosa soils.
However, for just enjoying a bar of chocolate and a glass of wine, how about pairing these two together? The result is quite astoundingly good!
Montezuma’s Organic Dark Chocolate infused with ground chilli from Mexico, together with a super smooth, full-bodied organic Malbec from Mendoza in Argentina! A match made in heaven.
For extra indulgence, how about a hot, dark chocolate fondue matched with a superb Rose Champagne?
Cool Grapes Ltd bring everything to you apart from plates! We can even bring a small gas stove to heat the fondue! This could be a perfect Valentine’s celebration or perhaps an Engagement party? Or simply because you and your friends, love both Chocolate & Wine!
