Step 2: Balance sweetness Look for a good balance between the sweetness of the wine or champagne and the sweetness of the chocolate. Tip The chocolate shouldn't be sweeter than the wine you are drinking with it . Step 3: Pair a Port wine for milk chocolate Pair a Port or other sweet wine to go with the rich, creamy texture of a milk chocolate or chocolate deserts. Step 4: Match a Cabernet for dark chocolate Match a Cabernet Sauvignon or other red wine with dark, toasty notes with dark or bittersweet chocolates. Tip Think of fruits that you enjoy with chocolate such as raspberries or strawberries and opt for a wine that matches those fruity tones. Step 5: Break out the Champagne for white chocolate Break out the sparkling wine, champagne, or a good white wine to go with white chocolate. Step 6: Trust your palate Trust your palate and choose a pair you enjoy, it's not always necessary to follow the rules as each person's taste is different. Did You Know?
