Chocolate wine has recently gained much popularity, despite being around since the 18th century. Chocolate wine had one of 2 styles. Both start with a clean red wine base. Then they either add chocolate to the wine to create a rich, deep, chocolatey profile; or they add chocolate and cream, to create a more milkshake-like beverage for adults. While the most popular time for chocolate wine is either Valentine’s Day or Easter, it can be enjoyed year round as a dessert wine. It is served best with ice cream, fruit, and cakes. It is also perfect as an after dinner drink, with its light, creamy, and fruity notes. It can be served chilled, at room temperature, or warmed, but try not to heat it beyond 65 degrees Fahrenheit, as this can greatly affect the taste. Most bottles will have the ideal way to serve each product. Here are some of our favorite chocolate wines:
