It's official: wine makes everything better. The same goes for dessert. Not sure which wines go best with dessert? No worries! We've taken care of you with this list of the five best wines for dessert. Trust us, your taste buds will thank you.

  1. Moscato d'Asti

Moscato d'Asti is a light, slightly sparkling white wine from the Piedmont region of Italy. It is sweet and low in alcohol, making it the perfect choice for those who want to have a glass of wine with dessert without feeling too full or tipsy afterwards. Moreover, its light effervescence goes perfectly with fruit-based desserts, such as peach cake or strawberry pie

  1. Sauternes

Sauternes is a sweet white wine from the Bordeaux region of France, made from grapes affected by noble rot, a type of fungus that dehydrates the grapes and concentrates their sugars. As a result, Sauternes is an intensely sweet wine with flavors of honey, apricot and peach. It goes best with rich, creamy desserts like cheesecake or crème brûlée

  1. Pedro Ximénez Sherry

Pedro Ximénez (often abbreviated as PX) is a type of sherry made from black grapes that have been sun-dried into raisins. This process concentrates the sugars in the grapes, resulting in a sweet, dark brown wine with flavors of cooked fruit, molasses and toffee. PX sherry goes well with chocolate desserts such as chocolate cake or brownies

  1. Tokaji Aszú

Tokaji Aszú is a Hungarian dessert wine made from grapes affected by botrytis cinerea - the same fungus that attacks grapes used to make Sauternes. Tokaji Aszú wines, however, tend to be sweeter and more intense in flavor because they are made from partially fermenting must (grape juice) rather than fully fermented wines. Tokaji Aszú wines pair well with fruits such as oranges or lemons and with nuts such as almond paste or hazelnut praline paste.

  1. Port

Port is a fortified red wine from the Douro Valley in Portugal, made from indigenous Portuguese grape varieties such as Touriga Nationala and Tinta Cao. It is characterized by its sweetness and flavors of dark berries, chocolate and coffee. Port goes well with chocolate desserts, cheese or nuts

These are just some of our favorite wines for dessert. So next time you don't know what to serve for dessert (or what to bring to your friend's dinner party), be inspired by this list and enjoy some wine with your sweets! Bon appétit!
