Valentine’s Day Candy & Wine Pairings

Cupid is just around the corner, and we’ve got the perfect candy and wine pairings for you and your valentine to try this Valentine’s Day! (Or, for you to try the day after Valentine’s Day when all the candy is 50% off.)

Candy Hearts and Sauvignon Blanc – A light, crisp Wooden Valley California Sauvignon Blanc won’t over-power this lightly flavored, semi-sweet candy.

Chocolate Covered Marshmallows and Tawny Port – Tawny Port from Portugal is perfect with these heart shaped goodies, because a wine with too high of an acidity will curdle the chocolate which has milk in it and this port is low in acid.

Ferrero Rocher & Chardonnay – A bottle of Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay would be the perfect pairing to this classic gifting chocolate. The hazelnut qualities of this Chardonnay will shine a spotlight on the nut, while the creamy quality of the wine will stand up to the chocolate.

Lindt White Chocolate Lindor Truffles and Rosé – A bottle of Empathy’s Rosé would go great with these creamy little balls of heaven. The creaminess of the white chocolate allows the wine’s fruity notes of watermelon and strawberries to pop.
