We love chocolate any day, any time. Today is National Chocolate Day and that has us thinking about pairing Delaware wines with chocolate!

Fenwick Wine Cellars  in Selbyville recommends their High Tide or Merlot for a delicious simple chocolate pairing.

In Marydel, Harvest Ridge Winery​ recommends the following based on what type of chocolate you’re enjoying:
-for milk chocolate or light chocolate desserts (think mousse), try their Merlot or sweeter sparkling wines like their Sparkling Vidal Blanc
-dark chocolate demands something hearty like Harvest Ridge’s soon to be released Chamfort, a port-style wine (oops! Did we just get a tip on a hot new offering? Yes!)

If you’re going “classic”, you can’t go wrong with chocolate dipped strawberries and Harvest Ridge Winery’s Sparkling Vidal Blanc.

There you have it! Perfectly delicious chocolate pairings, great for National Chocolate Day or any time you’re feeling a need for a little treat!
