Join Annemarie, founder of Wine by Annemarie and John Sporing, founder of A Life Well Drunk for a conversation about pairing wines and chocolates.

In the (February 4, 2021) tasting we will sip and discuss various wines and chocolates:

The Wines (choose 1-3, or more):

· Banyul, a fortified wine, so once open it lasts. Red, rich, and sweet and one of the best pairing partners to chocolate

· Banfi Rosa Regale, sweet, sparkling, rosé

· Moscato d’Asti, sweet, sparkling white, low alcohol

· Port, ruby, or tawny, also fortified

· Madeira, Marsala, Sherry (Oloroso, PX or other sweet style), make sure to get sweet or semi-dry styles, fortified

· Tokaji (sweet), Vin Santo, Sauternes are all sweet and rich/concentrated

· Late Harvest Riesling or Ice Wine, especially Cabernet Franc or Riesling, all sweet and rich/concentrated

· Zinfandel, or a fruit forward Cabernet Sauvignon or dry red blend from California

The Chocolates (choose 1-3, or more, we do not judge):

These are all good chocolates that can be found across the country:

· Lindt Excellence

· Lindt Lindor truffles

· Green & Black’s

· Taza

· Valrhona

· Ghirardelli

· Dove

· Moser Roth

· Scharffen Berger

· Alter Eco

· Equal Exchange

· Ferrero Rocher

· Godiva

Try to have at least one of each:

· Milk chocolate

· ~60-70% cocoa

· ~85% cocoa

If you feel like being adventurous, you can try some with nuts, sea salt, fruits (like berries, orange, etc.). But it is always good to have a few unflavored as a good baseline.

We are not listing any particular label or vintages for this tasting, so raid your cellar or support your local wine shop.
