If you like: Jolly Ranchers
Try: Middle Sister Surfer Chick Sauvignon Blanc

Red Wine & Candy Pairings
If you like: Kit-Kats
Try: Tall Dark Stranger Malbec
The red and black fruit notes in Tall Dark Stranger Malbec and chocolate wafer will taste like a grown-up version of a chocolate-dipped cherry. It stays well within this wine’s motto: “Sip with something – or someone – delicious.” Shop now or find near you.
If you like: Snickers
Try: Girl & Dragon Cabernet Sauvignon
Snickers aren’t your average chocolate bar, it’s filled with caramel, peanut, and nougat which is why the dark fruit notes in Cabernet Sauvignon contrast with the sweet and salty combo. This wine stands up to bold flavors, but is versatile enough to handle all of the tasty layers of the candy bar. Shop now or find near you.
Ghoulish Grown-Up Party Ideas
Glow-in-the-Dark Ice Bucket
No magic tricks needed here! Grab a handful of skinny glow sticks and position them below a clear bowl of ice. Add wine for chilling and voilà! The spookiest wine presentation on the block.
The old “is that blood in your glass?” trick is so simple it’s scary. Stock up on plastic medical syringes and add it to any glass of red wine when serving your guests. Equal parts “eew” and brilliant.
Get your hors d’oeuvre in on the spookiness with a touch of Halloween flair. We love adding this mummified brie to our snack tables for a creepy, cheesy treat.
