They are committed to using only the best ingredients in their premium chocolate and with flavours from white chocolate with Madagascan vanilla to dark chocolate with 85 per cent cocoa, there is something for anyone's valentine.

For this romantic holiday Green & Black’s has partnered up with wine expert Angela Aiello to help you find your perfect chocolate and wine pair. No matter your taste, Green & Black’s has created chocolate and wine pairings to satisfy all palates and make the perfect date. They have created pairings for every type of romance to make this Valentine’s Day unforgettable. 

For the Romantic Mastermind they have paired together Organic White, a milk chocolate made from fragrant Madagascan Vanilla and pressed to perfection for a wonderfully creamy and smooth texture. As for the wine they suggest a glass of fruity and bold Pinot Noir to elevate the chocolate’s pure, sweet and creamy notes. You are a Romantic Mastermind if you are a hopeless romantic searching for surprising, sweet pleasures in life, love and food. You don’t rationalize great taste to anyone and you aren’t afraid to pull out all the stops for the right person, especially on Valentine’s Day. 

Then there is the Loving Craftsmen, when it comes to romance you’re caring, thoughtful, and you put your heart into everything that you do. You love the comforts of reliability, but that doesn’t curb your keen sense of adventure. Your perfect match is Green & Black’s Organic Milk Chocolate, a rich and flavorful milk chocolate that balances the intensity of the cocoa with the relative sweetness of the milk.  For a truly remarkable Valentine’s Day experience, enjoy this classic treat with some bubbly to elevate the rich cocoa and milk with its crisp and dry notes. Angela Aiello’s Wine of Choice is Benjamin Bridge Méthode Classique Reserve Brut Sparkling 2013 from Nova Scotia. 

Tender Idealist’s perfect match is Green & Black’s Organic Sea Salt, a delicious milk chocolate punctuated with delicate flakes of Anglesey sea salt sourced from Halen Môn. For the wine Angela Aiello’s Wine recommends Thirty Bench Riesling from Beamsville Bench in Niagara.  You know you are a Tender Idealist when you think deeply about the world around you, and while you might seem quiet and reserved you are just busy contemplating deeper ideas. 

Lastly we have the Passionate Provider. Your perfect match is Green & Black’s Organic Toffee, a premium dark chocolate with wonderful distinctions of crunchy Yorkshire toffee pieces for a sweet bitter taste. You are the life of the party, and like the crunchy surprise of the toffee, you love to add your own little bits of fun and creativity to everything you do! Amusing, lively, and unique, you enjoy making a scene big or small and are drawn to embracing life through new opportunities and experiences. Pair this delicious chocolate  with an even dark and robust, aged Bordeaux-inspired Cabernet Sauvignon Blend to elevate the chocolate’s wonderful treacly and savory flavors. Angela Aiello’s Wine of Choice is aTrius Red Cabernet Sauvignon Blend from Ontario.
