Top 10 weird wine ingredients

28th February, 2013 by Andy Young

9. Chocolate wine

red wine flavoursMany red wines boast notes of chocolate and last year db navigated the minefield of matching wine with Easter chocolate, but this is wine that is made with chocolate.

As we have previously reported, a chocolate infused wine called Chocolate Shop has seen a surge in demand across the US and UK. The Chocolate Shop is owned by Washington-based Precept Wine and was launched in January 2011 in the US using a Bordeaux blend from California, mixed with sugar and natural chocolate. For the UK market, the base wine is a Tempranillo from Spain, while Shiraz is used in Australia. Precept Wine has said it will be experimenting with the development of new flavours, such as a white chocolate, caramel and Chardonnay combination.
