Chocolate wine sounds like a total gimmick but I am a believer in Europa’s ChocoVine. ChocoVine is a fine French Cabernet subtly combined with dark chocolate from Holland (14% alcohol by vol.). This wine has a very rich chocolate flavor that substantially covers up the wine taste in case you aren’t a huge fan of red wines. Europa also makes a chocolate raspberry version, which I have yet to try.
I have found the best way to drink this wine is to blend 1/3 ChocoVine with 2/3 ice. It’s fantastic! You definitely don’t want to drink this straight up as it’s rather thick and sweet. For more ChocoVine drink recipe ideas, click here.
This wine is great to give as a gift or to bring to parties.
