    Find out the best pairings of wines and chocolates to taste and gift this Christmas!

     

    This Christmas season, enjoy our unique combinations of wine and chocolate. Each pairing has been carefully thought! Follow our suggestions and elevate the experience to the next level.

     

    1. White Chocolate

     

    White chocolate is produced from cocoa butter (rather than cocoa paste used in other types of chocolate), mixed with milk and sugar. It is the smoothest, creamiest, and sweetest of all chocolates and has the power to brighten any time of the day: it produces hormones that promote a sense of well-being in the body.

     

    Therefore, if your day has been stressful, try one (or two!) squares of white chocolate with a glass of Mandriola white. The acidity and fruity notes of the white wine contrast with the sweetness, creating a harmonious combination.

     

    2. Milk Chocolate, the Most Popular

     

    Did you know that milk chocolate was once used as a medicine to cure fevers and relieve stomach aches? Or that during the Aztec empire, it was more valuable than gold and silver? It’s easy to understand why, just the aroma of chocolate alone is enough to lift one’s spirits.

     

    Here’s a suggestion to try right away: pair Milk chocolate bonbons with brandy ganache from Arcádia with Mandriola Red. The soft, fruity tannins of the red wine highlight the aromas of the chocolate, making them linger on the palate. Irresistible.

     

    3. Dark Chocolate, the Portuguese’s favorite

     

    It might be surprising, but the Portuguese’s favorite chocolate is the darkest one. Dark chocolate is seen as purer, as it only contains products originating from the cocoa bean. For this reason, it offers the most health benefits although calorically it is not very different from other types.

     

    In this case, open a bottle of Mandriola Red to go with it. Due to its stronger and bolder flavor, dark chocolate pairs well with dry, full-bodied red wines. Choose your favorite dark chocolate and give it a try! In doubt, we recommend trying the Dark Chocolate with Touriga Nacional from Bairrada with fruity and floral notes, or the Figs with Dark Chocolate and Wine: they are both worth tasting and will leave you wanting more.

     

    4. Filled chocolates, the most fun

     

    Filled chocolates are a true temptation. They bring together various flavors and textures, such as almonds, red fruits, caramel or spices. In this case, the ideal is to pay attention to the predominant flavor of the chocolate and choose a wine accordingly.

     

    For example, the  Casal Garcia Sparkling Chocolate fresh and full of red berry notes, pairs well with Mandriola Red boosting the richer flavors of the chocolate with its tannins.

     

    5. Ruby chocolate, the most sophisticated

     

    Have you ever tasted pink chocolate? It may seem that the color of Ruby chocolate is obtained from dyes but, in fact, it is its natural color. This chocolate is produced with special cocoa beans that have a natural light pink hue, and that are grown in the Ivory Coast, Ecuador, and Brazil.

     

    The taste is smooth and reminiscent of berries, but it doesn’t contain any additives either. Now that you have some tips on good wine and chocolate pairings, it’s up to you to discover the best combination!

     

    Wine and chocolate, the perfect combination

     

    With these tips, you can start trying the best wine and chocolate combinations. But remember: the important thing is to find your own match. So, get adventurous, explore different flavors and dare to break some rules.

     

    Take advantage of these suggestions to shine this Christmas. Give the most important people in your life a perfect combination of wine and chocolates. Choose a bottle of Mandriola and a  chocolate delicacy from Aveleda, a duo that never disappoints.
