Sweet Tooth – Latin American Dessert Wines

Nothing says ‘New Year’ like resolutions. Once again, Señorita Vino has trotted out the usual suspects:

1. Lose 10 pounds

2. Trim the belly

3. Tone the thighs

And all of this while eating cheese to my heart’s content and indulging in my nightly glass of vino.

Because  self-denial is not my middle name, I have come to the conclusion that sipping a dessert wine is far less dangerous than having an actual dessert. Case in point–I recently celebrated a birthday and bravely offered the complimentary, candle-lit brownie to Señor Jim. Meanwhile, I ordered a glass of Tokaji, the legendary Hungarian dessert wine, and heralded this next year of my life with a honey-sweet toast.

Forget the brownie. Nothing says 'happy birthday' like a glass of Tokaji.
Forget the brownie. Nothing says ‘happy birthday’ like a glass of Tokaji.

Hungary and France are not the only nations that boast exceptional dessert wines. Argentina and Chile are producing some rockin’ sweet sensations, and here for your reading and sipping pleasure is an article I wrote for TheLatinKitchen.com on Latin American dessert wines. Take a look and let me know what you think!

In the meantime, I’m accepting applications for Surrogate Exerciser.
