Barefoot Wine is encouraging wine lovers to think a little bit deeper about how their choice of wine brings out the flavours of their favourite chocolate.

The US wine brand has released a guide on how to successfully pair wine with chocolate, no matter what your preference is.

Milk Chocolate: Upgrade your classic choice of silky milk chocolate by pairing it with a glass of Barefoot Pink Moscato. A combination of notes of ripe red fruits, mandarin orange and subtle raspberry tones, this vibrant wine brings out the sweetness of the chocolate. Top tip from us: melt some of your chocolate and dip some strawberries in before sipping on Pink Moscato for the perfect treat.

Dark Chocolate: For a classic wine and chocolate combination, pair your choice of sumptuous dark chocolate treats with Barefoot’s rich Merlot. The dark, fruity flavours of this full-bodied red wine has a gorgeous hint of smoky vanilla oak and black cherries, making for a highly luxurious flavour sensation when combined with the bitterness of dark chocolate.

White Chocolate: Buttery in taste and texture, pair your yummy white chocolate with the equally as smooth medium-bodied Barefoot Buttery Chardonnay. The tempting vanilla and fruity nature of chardonnay blends perfectly with the sweet flavours of white chocolate. Amp it up a notch by choosing Barefoot’s Buttery Chardonnay, which is just as decadently smooth as white chocolate.

Salted Caramel: If you like your chocolate with a twist, then you are likely a fan of salted caramel. The delightful blend of sweet and salty is complemented well by Barefoot’s juicy Moscato. Notes of peach, ripe apricots and citrus make this the perfect dessert wine, bringing out the sweetness of the chocolate and caramel, while still letting the salty goodness take centre stage.

Orange Infused Chocolate: The zesty nature of orange infused chocolate pairs perfectly with fruity and crisp Barefoot Pinot Grigio. Thanks to its cool, light-bodied style, the wine will complement the strong flavours of orange chocolate.

No matter your chocolate preference, you’ll find the perfect choice of Barefoot Wine to go with it. The range includes Barefoot Moscato, Barefoot Cabernet Sauvignon, Barefoot Malbec, Barefoot Chardonnay, Barefoot Pink Pinot Grigio, Barefoot Buttery Chardonnay and Barefoot Pink Moscato alongside Barefoot Pinot Grigio, Barefoot Sauvignon Blanc, Barefoot Merlot and Barefoot White Zinfandel.
