The original and a classic. A perfect marriage between Dutch chocolate and French Cabernet Sauvignon. Strong full flavors with a delicate finish.
ChocoVine was created to bring the perfect pairing of wine & chocolate to life as a means to lower the bitter flavor of wine and add the sweet tooth of chocolate. Resulting in the finest blend of a full-bodied French Cabernet Sauvignon, subtly combined with rich chocolate. A match made in heaven!
Imported from the Netherlands, ChocoVine is a silky smooth and decadent delight enjoyed on the rocks or chilled. Now available in different flavors.
The wine world is vast and constantly expanding. With shifts in climate, fashion, trands and technology, new regions are constantly developing. Through research and experimentation enologists and winemakers continue to develop an understanding of which varieties work best on which vineyard sites. Often, since these regions have yet to gain worldwide popularity, they are great sources for the savvy consumer looking to try something new and interesting at a budget-friendly price.
Apart from the classics, we find many regional gems of different styles.
Late harvest wines are probably the easiest to understand. Grapes are picked so late that the sugars build up and residual sugar remains after the fermentation process. Ice wine, a style founded in Germany and there referred to as eiswein, is an extreme late harvest wine, produced from grapes frozen on the vine, and pressed while still frozen, resulting in a higher concentration of sugar. It is becoming a specialty of Canada as well, where it takes on the English name of ice wine.
Vin Santo, literally “holy wine,” is a Tuscan sweet wine made from drying the local white grapes Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia in the winery and not pressing until somewhere between November and March.
