Wine Harvest Season


Harvest Season is upon us and from Napa to Temecula to the Hill Country of Texas to other wine-growing zones across the country, the act of pressing grapes has begun. Many wineries are celebrating the season with “wine stomping” events, encouraging consumers to participate and try new products.  What should you pair these new wines with? Chocolate, of course!

Wine Truffles are the perfect snack to enjoy during Scandal
Wine Truffles are a great way to enjoy the harvest season!

Whether you’re gathering your wine collection from your local winery, liquor store, or a hot pick from Wine Spectator Magazine, Delysia has the chocolates for your wine tasting.  Do you prefer big bold reds, such as Cabernets and Merlots? Our Wine Truffle Collection is the perfect pairing. Featuring nine truffles, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Port wines, you can have enough to last you through any occasion!

Or, better yet, try the Coffee Collection to stay energized during a long night of tasting.  You’ll love the Mocha, Cappuccino, and Coffee flavors found in this collection and everyone will be perfectly caffeinated (pairs perfectly with Port or Madeira).

Finally, nothing pairs better with wine than Dark Chocolate Truffles.  These raspberry, dark chocolate, and hazelnut varieties are absolutely perfect to pair with a wide range of fruit forward red wines (and some heavy whites too)!  You can really impress the guests with both your wine selection and your ability to create pairings.

Whatever the reason for celebrating harvest season (ok, we know the real reason), consider a Delysia Chocolatier truffle collection to go with your celebration. Handmade, with every detail thought out, our chocolates are just like the wines that you’ll be enjoying this season.  Don’t forget to use your new pairing skills to create the perfect gift.  A bottle of wine and one of our Truffle Collections make great Thanksgiving housewarmers, Christmas gifts, and more.

To the delight of friends and family, she continued to create chocolates as a way to relieve stress from her corporate engineering job. In 2008, a chance trip to Becker Vineyards led to Nicole being the first in Texas to make truffles using local wines. Within five years, what started as a hobby turned Delysia into one of the Top Ten Chocolatiers in the Americas, as selected by the International Chocolate Salon.
