Halloween Wine and Candy Pairings
Witches, Wigs and, of course, Wine! Strangely enough, this Halloween you'll probably see all three.
Wine may already be a part of your nightly routine but this Halloween you get to guiltlessly indulge in obscene amounts of Halloween candy while you sip on glass of wine paired perfectly with your favorites!
See if you can guess which candies will pair best with these three varietal and which wine we recently featured in our wine of the month clubs we recommend!
Chardonnay: Skittles and Starbursts
A cool glass of Chardonnay is a nice coupling for juicy, fruity, and mouth-watering Starbursts or Skittles. Gentle acidity of the wine gives it a fresh and lively palate, perfect for these candies.
La Follette 2017 Chardonnay
Cabernet Sauvignon: Butterfingers and MilkyWays
Butterfingers and MilkyWays are sure to be in your candy stash this year. Why not enjoy them with a full-bodied, bold Cabernet Sauvignon that will cut through the sugary treats for a balanced tasting experience.
Tamber Bey 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon
Pinot Noir: Twix and Snickers
Last but certainly not least, try pairing your Pinot Noir with none other than a Twix and/or Snickers bar and you'll be one happy camper! The chocolate-covered, gooey caramel and crunchy bits in each of these candies are begging for the complex yet soft nature of a good Pinot.
Richard G. Peterson 2019 Pinot Noir
We could go on forever naming each grape varietal and the scrumptious Fun Sized candies to pair them with. But we won't because that could take a while and we know you're ready to uncork some wine and rip open a bag of candy that has been calling your name for the last week!
Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
