Another month and another article in the Fort Bend Focus. This month I tackle what I consider one of the worst subjects in wine: pairing wine and chocolate for Valentine’s Day. I get that there are people who think that the two go together swimmingly, but I am decidedly not one of them. You could argue that I do n0t want to serve as a judge on the issue since I don’t eat chocolate, but my quick research on the subject proved that I am not the only wine writer who feels that way.
So in this month’s issue, I offer a few wine-pairing suggestions for dinner, which is what you should be doing for your beloved every day, not just on St. Valentine’s Day. Once again, the fine editors at the Fort Bend Focus did a fantastic job with the layout and continued to show me some love with two pages.
Check out the issue by clicking on the screenshot below. Feel free to leave a comment here and chime in on how you feel about wine and chocolate (just writing the two together makes me a bit queasy).
In general, I’d probably agree with you, but several years ago, my hubbs and I took a wine and bike tour of the Niagara region in Canada, known best for its ice wines. Ice wine is so sweet it really kind of goes in a category all its own, but we sampled some with dark chocolate, and it was really enjoyable. The hubbs preferred it with bleu cheese, but still.
