In case you didn’t know, chocolate wine is a thing. I really enjoy that thing, and as we approach the candy-filled holiday we call Easter, you might decide a little grownup chocolate beverage is just the treat you desire.

Where I live, alcohol sales are highly regulated and I can not get wine via mail order. I have been able to regularly find chocolate wine at Cost Plus World Market (aka World Market in some states) and at Grocery Outlet (currently in only 6 states).

If you are lucky enough to live in a state that allows you to receive wine by mail, then you might try Total Wine (I’m not an affiliate). Though I can’t indulge from this site, I do enjoy just reading the descriptions of all the different chocolate wines they have.

Just the right nip for this time of year…
