Let’s get those taste buds tingling this Easter with an iconic combo – wine and chocolate!

Barefoot Wine, the Number 1 USA Wine brand in Ireland, has got you covered this Easter with a guide on how to successfully pair your glass of wine with your chocolate –  from milk, dark and white chocolate to salted caramel and orange infused chocolate treats. 

Make the most out of your treats, rather than reaching for the first bottle you come across, Barefoot Wine brings you that little bit deeper and explains how your choice of wine brings out the flavours of your choice of chocolate.

Barefoot Wine has also shared their top tips for dessert combos to pair with your wine of choice from Barefoot Pinot Grigio to Barefoot Merlot. 

PAIRING YOUR BAREFOOT WINE WITH CHOCOLATE AND DESSERT COMBOS

MILK CHOCOLATE with BAREFOOT PINK MOSCATO

Upgrade your classic choice of silky milk chocolate by pairing it with a glass of Barefoot Wine’s Pink Moscato. A combination of ripe red fruits notes, mandarin orange and subtle raspberry tones, this vibrant wine brings out the sweetness of the chocolate. 

Top Tip Dessert Combo: Melt some of your chocolate and dip some strawberries in before sipping on Pink Moscato for the perfect treat.

DARK CHOCOLATE WITH BAREFOOT MERLOT

For a classic wine and chocolate combination, pair your choice of sumptuous dark chocolate treats with Barefoot Wine’s rich Merlot. The dark, fruity flavours of this full-bodied red wine has a gorgeous hint of smoky vanilla oak and black cherries, making for a highly luxurious flavour sensation when combined with the bitterness of dark chocolate.

WHITE CHOCOLATE WITH BAREFOOT CHARDONNAY AND BAREFOOT BUTTERY CHARDONNAY

Buttery in taste and texture, pair your yummy white chocolate with an equally as smooth medium-bodied Barefoot Wine Chardonnay.  The tempting vanilla and fruity nature of chardonnay blends perfectly with the sweet flavours of white chocolate. Talk about yummy! Amp it up a notch by choosing Barefoot Wine Buttery Chardonnay, which is just as decadently smooth as white chocolate.

SALTED CARAMEL CHOCOLATE WITH BAREFOOT MOSCATO

If you like your chocolate with a twist, then you’re likely a fan of salted caramel. The delightful blend of sweet and salty is complemented well by Barefoot’s juicy Moscato. Notes of peach, ripe apricots and citrus make this the perfect dessert wine, bringing out the sweetness of the chocolate and caramel, while still letting the salty goodness take centre stage.

ORANGE INFUSED CHOCOLATE WITH BAREFOOT PINOT GRIGIO

Orange chocolate – it tastes like fruit, so it must be healthy, right? Well, maybe not – but we won’t judge. The zesty nature of orange infused chocolate pairs perfectly with fruity and crisp Barefoot Pinot Grigio. Thanks to its cool, light-bodied style, the wine will complement the strong flavours of orange chocolate rather than being on the OTT side.
