What’s the perfect wine to pair with dark chocolate for summer you ask? Surprisingly a wonderful light Northern Italian Pinot Grigio pairs well. Pinot Grigio has the fresh, summer fruit flavors of peaches and limes, with a taste that is soft, generous and well-balanced. Try Bolla Pinot Grigio Italy Veneto Venezie Italian or Cavit Pinot Grigio from Trentino’s Adige River Valley.

Some might think it’s impossible to pair wine with chocolate. But to that I say, nothing is impossible when it comes to wine. In fact, wine and chocolate are a great combination.

The first thing to remember when concocting your first wine-chocolate pairing is that the wine you pick should be just as sweet as — if not sweeter than — the chocolate itself. This is probably the most important step in the process, and is actually a good rule in general for pairing wine with any dessert.
