Pairing the Right Wine with Your Dessert

We simply can’t think of anything sweeter than some fabulous wine and a decadent dessert. You know you’re having a good day when it ends with this classic pairing. From red wine and chocolate to Prosecco and bread pudding, there is no shortage of irresistible ways to satisfy your sweet tooth. While Marker 32 may specialize in top-notch seafood and perfectly cut steak, it’d be a mistake to end your meal without ordering dessert. Here are our favorite ways to pair wine and dessert going into the spring and summer seasons:

Sparkling Wine + Salted Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

Whether you’re partial to Prosecco, Cava or something in between, our homemade bread pudding begs for this rich pairing. Sparkling wine offers a crisp departure from the sweet, creaminess of our salted caramel apple bread pudding. The dessert is finished with Whiskey Crème Anglaise, Candied Pecans, Blistered Grapes and Vanilla Ice Cream. Offset the bold, indulgent flavors with some low-sugar bubbly. Not sure which one? Ask your server for his/her best recommendations.

Bold Blend + S’mores Cake

As if a slice of s’mores cake could get any better…well, Syrah proves it’s totally possible to make a perfect dessert even more delicious. We recommend you split this unbelievable dessert with your dinner date and order a glass of red vino for yourself.

Our fan-favorite s’mores cake involves Devil’s Food Layer Cake, Ganache, Graham Crunch and Torched Marshmallows. Choose from one of our three red blends for a match made in heaven.

Sauvignon Blanc + Blueberry Crisp

The subtle sweetness of sauvignon blanc elevates the mild and unique flavors of this blueberry crisp like no other. Sauvignon blanc is the perfect sipping wine during the spring and summer for many reasons. It keeps you cool on a hot day, pairs well with most food and is acceptable at any hour of the season.
