If there are two things in life that instantly put a smile on my face, beyond my family of course, it's chocolate and wine...My husband and I have had many a pleasant evening at home sharing a bottle and while he might not partake in as much chocolate as I do, it's definitely one of our favorite pairings. That goes double for me and my bestie. We've had some our our best chats all snuggled up on one of our couches, noshing on chocolate and sipping some vino. And now that we've experienced Brookside Chocolate, I do believe we've added a new favorite pairing to our go-tos...
When you're serving wine pairings, pay special attention that the flavors that you will be enjoying together. The smooth dark chocolate and burst of fruit yumminess that make up Brookside chocolates go perfectly with a red like Clos du Bois Pinot Noir. I've always been a fan of the nice, mellow flavor of Pinot Noir and Clos du Bois puts out a lovely Pinot. So, obviously you'll find that being poured at my house to go along with my Brookside Pomegranate and Acai & Blueberry goodies. Haha! And not only on special occasions...no, no.
