It speaks to the heart, mind and soul of a person, and it shows just how much you care about them.

These wines are often overlooked as drinking wines, but they make an excellent pairing to those delicious sweets we love to enjoy, probably in decadent abundance, during the holiday season. Not sure how to go about finding the right one for your dessert? Consider our WineTable Food Pairings guide and upcoming articles your crash course in dessert and fortified wines.
