Halloween is only a few days away and it doesn’t have to be just for the kiddos! This year, while the little ones are out trick-or-treating, take out that favorite bottle of Wilson Creek Wine and pair it with some sweet treats! I don’t know about you… but this is definitely a party we would want to be at and a great way to use up all that extra candy, so we have come up with a guide to pairing Halloween Candy with our Wines for All To Enjoy!
Decadencia is our most classic pairing for chocolate so dig into those Tootsie Rolls or some Dark Chocolate Pieces!
Pouring a glass of red wine such as Malbec with handfuls of M&M’s, Family Reserve Zinfandel with some pint-sized Milkyways, or the Cabernet Franc with crispy crunchy Kit Kats or any other chocolate Halloween Treats will be oh so delicious.
Snickers, Butterfingers, or Baby Ruth’s? If your going with the Angelica Cream Sherry complement with rich and nutty candy bars! Even our Almond Sparkling Wine would taste delicious with a Mounds candy bar. Yum! (and your in luck! The Halloween Custom Label Almond Sparkling will be on Sale in the Tasting Room and Online starting Friday the 28th-31st!)
If you like the balance of sweet-fruity candies, pop open a bottle of Brut Sparkling Wine to go with a box of Nerds or Red Vines/Twizzlers, grab a handful of Skittles with a glass of Riesling, Gummy Bears with VS White Cab, or some juicy Starburst with a bottle of Viognier to really wake those taste buds!
P.S. Let’s not forget about the Hallo-Wine sale happening right now through Friday the 28th! Purchase the Variant Series 2 Pack~ VS Cabernet & VS White Cabernet and get the best of both worlds for that chocolatey goodness and deliciously fruity fun you are about to have!
If you love Caramel Apples and you want to compliment the caramel, definitely pair it with our Roussanne or “Yes Dear” Chardonnay. But if you are going for more focus on the apple flavor, the Late Harvest Chardonnay will really bring that warm toastiness and pull the crisp sour flavors of the apple.
Remember… No matter what your favorite Treats are, you can’t be Tricked when pairing with your favorite Boo’s! Happy Hallo-Wine!
