Milk Chocolate & Wine

Milk Chocolate & Wine

Milk Chocolate Wine Suggestions

Pinot Noir (Rex Goliath Pinot Noir $9) or a lighter-bodied Merlot (try Hogue or Columbia Crest) will complement a bar of milk chocolate, a creamy chocolate mousse or chocolate accented cheesecake. Rieslings, Muscats (try Bonny Doon's Muscat Vin de Glaciere 2004 for $15) or dessert wines tend to hold up well to mild milk chocolates.
