What pairs better than chocolate cake and red wine? Chocolate cake and a red blend is a delight for your taste buds. Red blends like our Racy Red, made of four varietals steal the show. The rich chocolate brings out the richness of the wine flavors. Our favorite chocolate cakes to pair with a red blend are German chocolate cake, molten chocolate cake, and chocolate mousse cake.

What’s funner than Funfetti cake? Funfetti pairs well with a bubbly that’s just as fun and can balance each sugar filled bite. The bubbles help cleanse the palette so you can enjoy the whole slice.

Lemon Cake and Sauvignon Blanc

Lemon cake with lemon butter frosting has a lightness and freshness that matches pairs well with a crisp Sauvignon Blanc. The lightness and delicate flavors of a sauv blanc like Sexy Sauv will bring out the tartness of the lemon cake making both the cake and Sexy Sauv taste even more delicious!
