The climate in the Netherlands, or Holland, is too cool and damp to produce quality wine. However the Dutch have been very active in the European wine market through the centuries, with their geographic location perfectly positioned as a prime merchant port for German and French wines. In addition, the Dutch have heavily influenced the production of South African wines. The Dutch settled there in the 17th century and established many wineries throughout the country, and also the Koöperatieve Wijnbouwers Vereniging van Zuid-Afrika Bpkt (KWV) in 1918. First developed as massive wine cooperative, this became the regulating force in the South African Wine industry. 
 
But while wine is not a big Dutch export, the Netherlands is known for gin. Jenever (Genever in Belgium), the name derived from juniper, which is the main botanical ingredient, was first produced in the 16th century. Chemist Sylvius de Bouve is attributed as the first to distill malt wine and add juniper to mask Read more »

    Intriguing concept; the misleading label seduced me - it's so artificial ~ "Taste" of Dutch chocolate - NOT!! it's all chemical flavoring no real chocolate in it. God, I felt like a guy who picked up a trannie ~ she was sweet, a brown-skinned beauty who knew how to dress - and undress me - but now I feel so unsedimental about her/m Read More

    My friend and I had just sat down in front of the fireplace Christmas evening and we opened a bottle of Chocovine. Soon after the mellow, relaxing delious taste soon gave us each a warm, happy feeling and we could soon feel a soothing effect come completely over each of us at the sametime. My friend looked at me and I could clearly see this wine... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    ChocoVine is good and I compare it to Baileys too. Drink it cold. I wonder why people rate it low due to calorie count when the don't even know how many calories it has. Would you rate Bailey's low too? I don't detect any funky smell. I gave several bottles as holiday gifts and everyone was pleased. It doesn't taste like a $500 bottle of wine bu... Read More

  • Choco Vine NV

    Snoothrank:

    At first Chocovine seemed to be too good to be true, like a Unicorn... it was just sitting there, in the magazine, I couldn't believe my eyes. I purchased it with no expectations. Just willingness. My friend and I said "cheers" and down it went. Smooth, delicious, suspicious. Really? This is really happening? My tastebuds danced in the rain of ... Read More
