Description

These Wine Bars Gift Boxes created by Chief Chocolate Officer combine perfectly with some of our favourite wines.  Each Gift Box contains six 50g bars of chocolate.  Each bar of premium chocolate complements a different world famous grape variety.  This set includes chocolate to eat with Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Malbec and Chardonnay.

Co-Founders Joe & Ted Moore worked for sister company Chief Wine Officer running VIP wine tastings for senior business executives in the UK, USA & Europe     Their love of fine wine and of chocolate provides the inspiration for these remarkable chocolate bars.  They are handmade in the UK and provide a unique experience in the enjoyment of chocolate and wine.

Pairing Food and Wine

It is notoriously challenging to pair wine with chocolate.  This maybe because both wine and chocolate contain flavanols.   This clash of tannins can mean that a piece of chocolate eaten with wine can make the wine seem sour or bitter.  However, you don’t just have to stick to sweet desert wines when eating sweet food.

Pairing food and wine is always subjective to some extent therefore it is firstly worth thinking about flavour, acidity, weight and length in the wine.   Then consider how this might work – or not – with the intensity, sweetness and texture of the chocolate.  Enjoy some tasting experiments before presenting dinner party guests with your perfect match.  Even then, don’t necessarily expect everyone to be happy.

Each of Chief Chocolate Officer’s chocolate recipes evolves after analysing the typical tasting notes of the UK’s six most popular wine grapes.   They work so well with their chosen grape, they mutually enhance the enjoyment of both.

To find out more about food and wine pairing come and visit us at the Winchester Wine Festival.  Susie and Peter Richards will be running food and wine pairing masterclasses during event.
