No Tricks, ALL Treats! Halloween Wine + Candy Pairings
Posted on October 31, 2016
Happy Halloween, Grape Vine!
Keeping with what we do best this Halloween (hint: it’s not make up….see video below), we decided to give some suggested pairings a good ole college try and give you our REAL thoughts. You may have seen a pairing chart we threw up on our blog a couple of Halloween’s ago. Missed it? Don’t worry, we got it back for you. Once again, thanks to our friends at thekitchn.com for throwing this labor of love together. Drumroll, please….
First Thing’s First: The Costumes
Now, we’ll be the first to admit that we didn’t plan super elaborate costumes in advance. Look, guys, we’re like you…we’re busy and overcommitted and the fact that we have a wine blog is the only thing that gets us from the beginning of the week to the end. But even WE can come up with a costume in a pinch. A little eye liner can go a long way when it comes to Hallloween. Here’s what we came up with:
Next come the Treats
We grabbed 3 of our favorite wines – a Sparkling Rosé brut, Chardonnay and Zinfandel blend – and used our handy-dandy guide to see what went where. Skittles and Reese’s and Kit Kat’s…oh MY! Take a peek below to see the full sugary report:
