Forget cheese - try a chocolate fit for wine-pairing Add to ...

Until now, cheese has pretty much had a lock on the wine-accompaniment game, but in-the-know wineries and sommeliers are now making room next to the blues and chevres for a decadent newcomer, Brix Chocolate. Specifically blended to complement different wine varietals, this award-winning chocolate enhances without overwhelming wine's subtle nuances. It's available in three blends: milk chocolate (for lighter reds and desserts wines), dark chocolate (the most versatile blend and great with zinfandel, syrah or merlot) and extra dark (perfect for deep, full bodied reds like cabernet and bordeaux). $13.95 each (call 1-877-243-9463 for retailers). -
