Port & Chocolate - A Perfect Pairing

With Valentine's Day almost upon us our thoughts are turning to all things chocolate and the best wine to accompany our favorite sweet treat. 

Simply put chocolate is delicious accompanied by red wines with their often matching and complementing flavors but where it really shines is with a good quality Port. Port has the perfect balance of fruit, spice, acid, sugar and alcohol to be paired with a wide assortment of chocolates. 

Even in the glass Port is a pleasure to behold. A color that is deep and brilliant with aromas and flavors that typically show hints of spice-infused blackberry deserts, mixed nuts and of course chocolate! 

As part of the 10th year anniversary events taking place here at Bourassa Vineyards, on Saturday (tomorrow!) we invite you to a 'Smokin Good Time' where among the wines poured will be our very own Solera Port. It will be a perfect opportunity to pair our Port with the fine chocolates from Napa's Vintage Sweet Shop as well as enjoying a cigar from Baker Street Cigar.

There's still time to RSVP by calling (707) 254 4922!

Sip a small amount of wine and move it over your entire tongue so that all your taste buds come in contact with it. The trick to tasting wine is to allow the aromas of the wine to enter your nasal passageway at the back of your throat. Thanks.'s Gravatar
