∙ pairing wine with your favorite desserts ∙



Dessert and wine pairings are ideal for events like Valentine's Day, anniversaries, birthdays or just for fun!


Wine that pairs best with desserts need an element of sweetness, but they also need to have the same intensity of the dish. When pairing wine with dessert, there are two factors to consider:


1: Acidity- an acidic wine will pair best with a fruity dessert that also is acidic.

2: Intensity- The more intense the dessert (like dark chocolate cake), the more intense your wine should be.

Pro Tip: A good rule of thumb is that as the color of dessert gets darker, so should the wine!


Lemon Bars Paired With Chardonnay

2019 Double Barrel Reserve Chardonnay



Why it works: The fruity citrus notes of the wine bring out even more of a zippy lemon flavor from the dessert, and the buttery oak is complimentary to the flaky crust. 



Chocolate Mouse Paired With Barrel Aged Sweet Red OR Amor En Fuego (Red Chile Chocolate Wine)

2019 Deviance


Why it works: The sweet strawberries and cherries of the wine balance with creamy heavy flavors of the chocolate as nuances of vanilla, tobacco, and smoke compliment baking spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. 

Amor En Fuego (Red Chile & Chocolate Wine)

Why it works: The marshmallow and vanilla notes of the wine compliment the rich flavors of chocolate as the red chile spice cuts right through the heavy creaminess of the mouse, which makes it feel perfectly balanced.


Apple Pie Paired With Gewürztraminer

2019 Gewürztraminer


Why it works:  Gewürztraminer combines fruit and spice in the same way apple pie does. Notes of  peaches, lavender, and cinnamon of the wine compliments the ginger-y flaky crust and crisp apples of the pie.
