Learn More About Dessert Wine

Dessert wines are a category of wine that is typically served after dinner or alongside sweet desserts. These wines tend to be rich, full-bodied and higher in alcohol content than table wines, making them perfect for sipping slowly as you enjoy your dessert. They can range from light and refreshing to rich and syrupy, with flavours ranging from honeyed apricots to dark chocolate truffles.

American dessert wine from California, Oregon and Washington is a true gem. The hot and dry climate in these regions allows the grapes to fully ripen, resulting in rich flavours that are unique to each vineyard, but generally rich and complex with notes of caramel, honey, and dried fruit.

The wines are carefully crafted by skilled winemakers who understand the artistry involved in creating a truly unique wine, strongly rooted in the place that the grapes are grown. In fact taking a sip of one of these wines is like taking a journey through the vineyards themselves.

Handpicked from small production growers who pay close attention to every detail of their grape cultivation process, our desert wines really are exceptional. Boasting a unique flavour profile that perfectly complements anything sweet or as a complex pairing for your cheese board, foie gras or pâté, their rich aroma transports you to the sun-drenched vineyards where the grapes were grown. Paired with these savoury dishes dessert wines can offer an unexpected flavour sensation.

When selecting a dessert wine to pair with your meal, consider the sweetness level of both the wine and the food – aim for balance rather than overwhelming one another. Additionally, keep in mind the texture and weight of both components; lighter desserts may pair better with sparkling or ice wines while richer dishes call for something more robust.
