Cupcake Vineyards Wine and Chocolate Pairings
- Assorted Fruit & Nut Chocolates and Chardonnay
A box of assorted fruit & nut chocolates can be tricky to pair since it’s full of different flavors that only share the chocolate in common. A wine for these bite-sized treats must be food-friendly and complementary to a variety of flavors…enter Cupcake Chardonnay. Delicately rich and creamy, Cupcake Chardonnay enhances each chocolate and the tasty flavors within. Pair this team with a surprise visit from your in-laws.
- White Chocolate and Sparkling Rosé
Nuanced and creamy, pair white chocolate with a wine that refreshes your palate and enhances the rich chocolate flavors. Cupcake Sparkling Rosé invigorates your taste buds with tart raspberry and juicy strawberry while its subtle floral notes bring the chocolate to a delicious close. Pair this combination with an evening at home with your best friends.
- Milk Chocolate and Cupcake Butterkissed Chardonnay
Creamy and smooth, milk chocolate deserves an equally indulgent Chardonnay. Our Butterkissed Chardonnay is decadent in flavor and texture, bursting with luscious buttery notes and hints of vanilla that add to the richness in every bite of milk chocolate. This wine also pairs deliciously with chocolate peanut butter cups. Pair this duo with a date night with your TV and stretchy pants.
