The Perfect Pair, Brookside Chocolate and Wine

Brookside Chocolate

Whether it’s the holidays or any time of year, you know I am all about entertaining. I love to host friends for casual movie nights or larger more blown out parties. And while my home isn’t always perfect (think the opposite of a catalog), I think inviting friends into our home on a regular basis shows them how much we care.

Many times after a dinner, rather than making a dessert I’ll set out some chocolate as we finish the evening sipping wine and swapping stories. This is my favorite part of the evening. The stress of hosting is over and the mood tends to be light hearted. Typically I’ve also put the husband on dish duty too!

Finding the perfect pairing to nibble on is ideal for making sure that everyone leaves happy. The flavors and the wine need to go hand in hand. One great pairing includes Brookside chocolate with Clos du Bois wine. I had been drinking Clos du Bois for some time before I experienced this Brookside pairing and it’s just right.

If you’ve never had Brookside chocolates, they are dark chocolate with sweet fruit flavors on the inside. So delicious! Two pairings that work for just about any gathering are the:
  • Clos du Bois Merlot with the Brookside Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Flavor
  • Clos du Bois Pinot Noir and the Brookside Dark Chocolate Acai & Blueberry Flavors.

The sweetness of the chocolate, followed by the fruity flavor just compliments both of these wines so well. The perfect nightcap!

  1. My favorite way to host or entertain at our house is when I am not there!!! My wife has her friends over for various things, and I tend to find a reason to be elsewhere.

  2. we love to make some homemade food (my husband cooks) wine, dessert, some music & then some games after dinner
