Wine Library's Halloween Candy and Wine Pairings!
Adults need to have fun on Halloween too, so don’t forget to stock up on some wine to pair with your favorite candy this year!
Pairs excellently with candy corn. The sweet, waxy, and buttery flavor and texture of the candy pairs nicely with this buttery Chardonnay. Drinking this with candy corn also helps to soften the pure sugar flavors this candy often has.
The bright and fruity character of skittles needs something just as fun, and fruity. This sweet and fruity wine pairs very well a nice brut Prosecco. The flavors of apple, peach, pear and tropical notes. Expect a sweet but delicious pairing.
Halloween isn’t complete until you have some chocolate. Either in the form of a delicious Hershey’s chocolate bar or kisses. Whichever way you like yours it would go very well with this Zinfandel. The creamy chocolate will seem to have slight berry flavors when paired with this delightful wine.
Peanut butter cups are probably one of my favorite candies, and just like many others, this sweet and salty candy goes great with wine. This Pinot noir goes great with this as the acidity helps to cut through the richness of the candy and the flavors of the wine complement it nicely.
