I love wine and all the moments that surround it in my life. I always associate wine with friends, good moments and good food.

When I learned about The Dreaming Tree Wines philosophy, I fell in love with it immediately.  The Dreaming Tree Wines are made by a collaboration between Dave Matthews, yes the worldwide known musician, and award- winning winemaker Sean McKenzie. They both came up with available and high-quality California wines in the fall of 2011.

The collection of wines is incredible, and they even thought of how to make it conscious from vine to table. This earth friendly approach includes labels made with 100% recycled brown Kraft paper, bottles that are a quarter pound lighter than the average wine bottle, leaving a smaller carbon footprint through transportation, and bottles and natural corks that are recyclable.

This cake is a dream come true for pairing it with wine. It has all the richness of chocolate and the flavors and complexity of the red wine. I used Pinot Noir grape for this chocolate cake because of the black cherry, wild strawberry, and toasty caramel notes. Even though I used this wine for dessert, it would also be great paired with mushrooms and risotto.
