Winter Wine | Our Favs

What’s better than wine? Wine and chocolate! Ask one of our experienced wine stewards to help you find the perfect bottle to go with your favorite chocolate. If you’re a milk chocolate lover, we recommend something on the sweeter side, like a Brachetto or a medium-bodied red, like an Oregon Pinot Noir. To avoid dark chocolate making your wine taste bitter, try a sweet Port or an adventurous Italian Barolo Chinato. If you’re in a hurry and need a cold bottle, we have bottle chillers in store.
