Do you like chocolate truffles?? Have you ever thought if you could pair them with a nice wine? Well, that is probably the most common problem when it comes to chocolate and wine in general. I have a recommendation for the perfect pairing of the two for you today.

But wait! I have a recommendation for the perfect pairing of the two for you today!

You see, I have a special truffles recipe, the Bittersweet Chocolate Truffles recipe which will match completely with a Ruby Port or Vintage Port wine!
