About Scharffen Berger Chocolate

Chocolate connoisseur Robert Steinberg and winemaker John Scharffenberger founded Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker in 1977.

The pair tested multiple combinations in their San Francisco kitchen before perfecting a unique blend of beans that highlighted the true flavor of cacao. The result is an array of distinctive chocolates. Each one is characterized by complexity and balance, not unlike fine wines.

Today, Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker travels the world to source the finest cacao from small sustainable farms. Of the more than 150 samples we taste each year, only a few are good enough to become Scharffen Berger Chocolate.

Why Pair Chocolate With Wine?

Both fine wine and premium chocolate have nuanced flavor profiles worthy of being savored. Enjoying chocolate and wine together elevates an already luxurious indulgence, creating a delicious harmony of tastes and textures. Try it and see! Reward yourself with the sensory pleasure of Scharffen Berger 62% Semisweet Chocolate Bars and sparkling wine, or better yet, gather some friends for a lively session of flavorful exploration.

Scharffen Berger Chocolate and Wine: The Perfect Pair

Before he became a chocolate maker, John Scharffenberger was one of California’s most respected wine makers. He approached his chocolate business with the same sophisticated palate and attention to detail—that’s why Scharffen Berger Chocolates are perfect for wine pairings. Each semisweet chocolate bar has a nuanced flavor profile that rivals those of the finest wines.

Customer Reviews

This bar tastes very much like dark chocolate that has milk/cream mixed into it.
Rebecca N
They are very rich, very flavorful, and are perfectly semi-sweet--not at all bitter, smooth rather than sharp, with a perfect, light amount of sweetness.
R. C. Bowman
Then we get to the taste and this is as good as anything one can find with prepackaged chocolate.

Flavor Name: Extra Dark (82% Cacao) Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Dark chocolate is probably one of the best deserts out there: a good square is filling, satisfying, delicious and even good for you. Scharffen Berger hits all the right notes with their extra-dark bar. It's everything a dark chocolate lover would expect: the rich taste, the hint of bitterness, and all this without one of dark chocolate's frequent flaws, graininess. This is as smooth a dark chocolate bar as any milk I've ever had, and somehow despite the high cocoa content also manages to be one of the least bitter (!?). Highly recommended.

If you're so inclined this is a fantastic chocolate to end a tasting dinner or to pair with a good glass of Cabernet. You could also just, you know, eat it. It's delicious.

Flavor Name: Bittersweet Dark Chocolate (70% Cacao) Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
While it is certainly true that there are other superb Bitterwseet chocolates out there that can outshine Scharffen Berger in a one on one taste test, I have yet to find one that could consistantly deliver this same level of quality at this price point and still achieve all the things we look for in a very, very dark chocolate. One would have to have access to a dependable Artisanal Chocolatier to find that and even then, I doubt they could came in at even less than twice the price.

This is why Sharffen berger is the preferred chocolate of both home and professional bakers at this busy time of year. We know it will deliver to us a nice evenly noted Bittwersweet taste not too waxy nor overly creamy in texture and that this 70% Cacao bar can be easily incorporated into ganaches, used to melt and then coat dried fruits for Holiday platters, serve as the basis of a decadedent Southern Chocolate layer cake 6 layers high or, be snapped off into the scored triangles and enjoyed by the cook as a not-too-guilty indulgence full of flavinoids and anti-oxidants your store-bought candybar has long abandoned in the name of cheap, artificial vanillas and tropical fats to replace to Coco butter.

Some people I tried to tempt with a small serving of the bar, snapped off and offered as the perfect marriage of bitter and sweet just couldn't get over their love of rich Milk Chocolate but if you make sure the bar is warmed to at least 78 to 80 degrees, very gently on a plate, it melts a little eaiser in the mouth as it warms up to body temperature and loses the waxy sensation that people eating it at a colder 65 degrees tend to report. So if you plan to serve the bar or eat the bar on it's own, respect the coco butter's richeness and the fact that there is less of it in this dark bar.

Flavor Name: Extra Dark (82% Cacao) Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I was originally taken aback by this product when I received it, as I planned to do a wine and chocolate pairing with it and I got six- count 'em- six (6) hefty bars of the product. So of course that meant a lot- and I mean A LOT- of wine pairings...

As for the chocolate itself, I nibbled on one bar throughout the day, having some as a snack and most with meals. The chocolate itself is a little on the heavy, creamy side, with a strong peppery overtone and an unusual but pleasant after-taste. Fans of sweet chocolate will be let down somewhat, as the bars were not very sweet. However, this allowed the natural flavor of the chocolate to shine. The peppery taste was a little on the hot and spicy side, thus reminding me of some of the more adventurous south-east Asian or Central American food that I have consumed (with tearful, giddy glee) over the years. This immediately brought to mind pairings with some of the sweeter white wines- Riesling and Gerwurztraminer, for the best possible Epicurean experience, but I had resolved early on to sample the pairings across a broad and representative spectrum of wines. That said, here are the results of the pairing tests (a la Discovery Channel's Mythbusters style):

Pairings with reds: totally busted. As a group, the tannins of the reds, which impart the flavors to the red wine, generally over-powered the flavor of the chocolate. Possibly the only exception to this was one of Trader Joe's many versions of two-buck Chuck- white merlot; however, the after-effects of this combination (and even with the wine alone) were most unpleasant. Overall, the reds as a group imparted little in the way of sweetness and generally over-shadowed the inherent flavors of the chocolate.

Pairings with pinks: marginally busted.

Flavor Name: Extra Dark (82% Cacao) Verified Purchase
I am pleasantly surprised to find this 82% Extra Dark chocolate not as bitter as I expected. Given its high cacao content, the flavor of this chocolate bar seems to differ depending on the batch, but it is definitely smooth and almost creamy.

The batch I got is like a dark syrah. It tastes quite a bit of dried fig and cigar, with just a hint of pepper. I haven't tried pairing it with wine yet, but it goes well with black coffee or by itself. This chocolate is well "conched", making the texture very smooth, almost creamy, like very dense hot chocolate. The sweetness is definitely there to balance out the bitters of cacao, but not overpowering. This chocolate almost feels like a 70% cacao chocolate with more complex flavor profile.

I look forward to try this chocolate with various wine. From reading other people's review, it seems like a tawny port or whites may pair better. I will update this review once I've given it a try.
