CHOCOLATE FOR WINE...BRIX..THE FIRST CHOCOLATE SPECIFICALLY BLENDED TO COMPLIMENT WINE by Philip S. Kampe

BRIX CHOCOLATE http://www.brixchocolate.com/ is a chocolate that is specifically designed by Dr. Nick Proia to compliment wine. The key factor: Chocolate from Ghana is known for it's red fruit tones that actually enhance those nuances found in wines, without confusing the palate.
Dr. Proia has worked with the chemistry of these chocolates from Ghana to pair perfectly with wine.

BRIX offers three types of chocolate for wine pairing: MILK, DARK and EXTRA DARK.

BRIX MILK CHOCOLATE is designed to pair with lighter reds and dessert wines. The pairings work best with Ports, Ice Wines, Roses, Pinot Noir and Sherry.

BRIX DARK CHOCOLATE is the most versitile of the three types offered. It pairs perfectly with light Cabs, heavy Pinot Noirs, Zinfandel, Merlot, Sangiovese ( Chianti) and Carmenere.

BRIX EXTRA DARK is designed to pair with the heavy reds: Barolo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bordeaux, Malbec, peppery Zinfandel and Syrah.

" According to Dr. Proia, "CHOCOLATE and WINE are an amazing duo. They bring out the Best in each other. The natural tannins in the cocoa prime the palate for the tannins in the wine, allowing the other flavors in the wine to shine".

At $8.99 an 8 ounce bar, it is the perfect time to venture into the World of Pairing Chocolate with Wine.

BRIX is now sold in many wine shops, but, if you can't find the bars, order online.

Forget the cheese, for a change, and try CHOCOLATE!!
