Interesting flavor combos are perfect for pairing chocolate and wine
Comparing the nuances of chocolate to the nuances of wine isn't a new idea. Neither is pairing chocolates and wine. But if you are doing some pairing, it certainly makes the experience more interesting when the chocolates have rich, unique flavor combinations.
Such is the case with Chocolate Smith. They're "chocolate pates" are made in small batches from scratch (all organic and local). Then, the brilliantly dip each piece by hand in cheese wax, to keep it fresh and protecting it in hot weather.
We think the best way to get into pairing is to sample a lot of items. Chocolate Smith's Pate Sampler would be a great entre into the fun. The sampler features their top flavors (White Chocolate Mimosa Pate with Orange & Lavender, Dark Chocolate Pate, Nuts & Berries Pate with Pomeranate & Fig, and Sunset Orange Pate with Chipotle Chili & Cinnamon). And each one complements a different wine - from Champagne to Port.
