Wine and Dessert

D&W Fresh Market Wine & Dessert Pairing

You can find a wine to pair with every course, from soup to nuts. Some of the most delicious, made-in-heaven matches are dessert and wine. Here are a few general considerations in planning what wine to serve with dessert: 

  • Serve a wine that is sweeter than the dessert, or at least as sweet. Or the wine will taste sour.
  • Contrast textures. Don’t serve a syrupy, sticky wine with gooey dessert.
