Dessert and wine pairings are just all-around amazing. Wine AND sweets?! What is better than that?

For this question, we knew which one was going to come out on top. There was no getting around that. But we didn’t know how much people were going to LOVE the #1 dessert + wine pairing.

We also asked the Bright Cellars’ Instagram followers their option. Here are the results:

  • Over half of the responses we got said chocolate + wine
  • No one said ice cream + wine

We found this to also not be very surprising that the majority of people on Instagram also voted for chocolate + wine to be their favorite. But no one voted for ice cream + wine? Sad.
