Wine Pairing

Erica, the baking sorceress in the kitchen, discovered her baked goods paired excellently with wines from the beginning. She began consulting with local wine experts to help her develop a product line of biscotti that were specifically designed to pair well with the flavor notes of wines.

Wine pairing is more of an art than a science. What tastes good to you, may not the be the pairing for someone else. In general, a wine should compliment the prevailing taste of the food – not fight it. For that reason, pastries, which are predominately sweet, should be matched with a sweeter wine. Too sweet, it will overwhelm the pastry. Too acidic or dry, it will contrast too strongly. Following are some general suggestions when pairing wines with our products. The references section has links to several wonderful online articles on the topic.


Our biscotti are made with organic flours, fruits, chocolate and nuts. Our couverature is made with E. Guittard chocolate.
