Celebrate The Chocolate Week With Wine & Spirits
This week (13-19 October) is dedicated to chocolate in the UK with a lot of events including the Chocolate Show in London. We thought it would be great to feature the best wines and spirits to match with chocolate. Whether they are chocolate flavoured or they go very well with chocolate, we have selected a few wines, spirits and gift sets to enjoy this week with indulgent treats!
The Chocolate Block
South Africa, Western Cape, 2012
Our expert, Angela Mount, loves it! As its name suggests, it displays aromas of dark chocolate and mocha which makes it an intense and rich red wine.
Rubis Chocolate Wine
Chocolate flavoured wine! This fortified wine from Spain is made with Tempranillo grapes and infused with chocolate essence. In two words: nom nom!
Waitrose Seriously Plummy Maury
France, Southern France
Another wine recommended by Angela Mount. This is a dessert wine which has a close taste to Christmas pudding and goes very well with chocolate! A fabulous sweet treat!

White Wine and Swiss Truffles
