Valentine’s Day is a great time to show someone you love them with a bottle of wine, a wine tasting experience, or a special event at one of the local CT vineyards.
Here’s some pairing suggestions from Chamard Vineyards in Clinton, courtesy of blogger Christina Musto:
If you’re in the mood for Dark & Decadent… 2014 Chamard Vineyards Heritage Cabernet Sauvignon pairs wonderfully with dark chocolate. The bitterness of the chocolate brings out the fruit in the wine, giving you a scandalously flavorful experience.
If you’re in the mood for Sensual & Sweet… 2015 Chamard Estate Reserve Chardonnay is the perfect choice for white chocolate, butterscotch, or caramel desserts. The buttery notes in the barrel aged Chardonnay compliment the savory sweetness of these deserts – leaving a lingering sweet feeling in your mouth as well as in your heart.
If you’re in the mood for Bubbles… Chamard’s Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc compliments your everyday milk chocolate bar. Just as sparkling wines always bring the party, sparkling wine + chocolate = a match made by cupid!
No matter what vineyard you visit — they’ll have the perfect pairing for you and yours!
