You’ve probably heard us mention before that our collection of Dark Chocolate Truffles pairs beautifully with a glass of wine so we figured it’s high time we made you a pairing guide for casually luxurious combinations. Wine pairing truffles usually involve a full-bodied red to compliment the rich dark chocolate, though our variety of flavors also complement a crisp glass of Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, or any blend that appeals to you.
A Variety of Truffles Calls for a Variety of Wine Pairings
Malibu Gift has a large selection of dark chocolate truffle flavors and other luxurious chocolate treats as well. Our original truffles are perfect for the true dark chocolate lover in your life. This rich and decadent treat is best with a glass of full-bodied Cabernet as well as our Dark Chocolate Espresso Truffles. Of course, pairing espresso with a cup of Dume Coffee is always a great combination as well.
Another excellent dessert combination is our Dark Chocolate Cherry Truffle with Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir has notes of cherry and blackberry among other dark fruit making it the perfect companion to our Dark Chocolate Cherry Truffles.
Our lighter truffle fillings like Dark Chocolate Coconut Cream are great for warm summer days on the patio with a glass of chilled Riesling or Sauvignon Blanc. Coconut cream filling is especially refreshing with a frothy cup of espresso or cappuccino for an afternoon boost of energy that’s casually luxurious.
There’s no flavor duo quite like chocolate and orange. Though it may remind you of Christmas, our Dark Chocolate Orange Vodka Truffles with a glass of Champagne or an Aperol Spritz make the perfect summer apéritif. These are best served on a warm and breezy evening with your favorite people.
Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Truffles always make the perfect end of summer dessert. These flavors are light enough for warm August days yet rich and comforting on cool September evenings. Pass these around at a bonfire, the beach, or a family barbeque this Fall while you sip on a buttery Merlot or Chardonnay.
Just In: Dark Chocolate Creams, English Toffee Sticks, and More
We recently dropped a selection of new gourmet gifts including English Toffee Sticks dusted in almonds, Salted Caramel Chews, and Dark Chocolate Creams. Choose from Strawberry, Coffee, or Chocolate filling that’s encompassed in a dark chocolate shell and pair them with Chardonnay, Dume Coffee, or a medium-bodied wine like Merlot. These Dark Chocolate Creams make perfect thank you gifts, dinner party desserts, and to treat yourself to after a busy day.
Now you have the best wine and truffle pairing guide for a casually luxurious way to unwind and indulge this evening. Complete the occasion with a set of our Malibu Gift wine glasses and a vintage aerator from our Wine and Vintage page.
