White Chocolate Cranberry & Orange Biscotti 

Biscotti Notes: Zesty and creamy

Pairs well with: Löss & Lehm Grüner Veltliner

Wine Characteristics: Bright, light, fresh, stone fruit 

Why do they work together? The Grüner Veltliner cuts through the sweetness of the white chocolate, while complementing the zesty fruit flavors of cranberry and orange. 

Double Chocolate with Roasted Almond Biscotti 

Biscotti Notes: Vanilla and nutty

Pairs well with: M Fondo Marzemino

Wine Characteristics: Bubbly, acidic

Why do they work together? The bubbles from the Fondo Marzemino balance out the double chocolate on the biscotti and bring to life the undertones of vanilla and almond.

Vanilla Chai Biscotti 

Biscotti Notes: Spiced and Toasty

Pairs well with: Glou Glou Las Jaras

Wine Characteristics: Raspberry, blackberry, earthy spice 

Why do they work together? The raspberry and blackberry flavors of the wine complement the complex spices in the biscotti, but can also stand up to the warming toasty notes since the red is chilled.
