Halloween Candy + Wine Pairings
#Spooktacular season is under way and the Team at Clif Family is getting into the spirit!
It’s that time of the year when we are all busy shopping for the perfect pumpkin or gourd at the patch, visiting haunted houses, getting lost in corn mazes, and putting the finishing touches on our Halloween costumes for the kiddos and the furry ones too.
But don’t forget about treating yourself and your fellow Halloween squad. Team Clif Family has the perfect candy and wine pairings to make your holiday extra #boolicious.
Candy Corn & Chardonnay
Almond Joy & Grenache
The only time of the year we enjoy #AlmondJoy, so why not have some fun!
“I love how the coconut and dark chocolate complement the red fruit notes in the Sonoma Valley Grenache. What a surprise pairing for me.”
Snickers & Kit's Killer Cab
Kit’s Killer Cab pairs beautifully with #Snickers. The sweet milk chocolate and salty nougat scream for a rich and spicy red. We might recommend setting aside at least 2 or 3 of the mini sized Snickers to enjoy with this pairing…
Why does Antonia love this pairing? “Because Snickers are the best and so is Kit’s Killer Cab!”
100 Grand Bar & Cima Cabernet
Why not pair a #100GrandBar with one of our special, small-production Cabernets from Howell Mountain? For this match up, we really enjoy the play of textures. The milk chocolate, caramel with crisped rice welcomes the rich and luxurious tannins of the Cima Cabernet Sauvignon.
As Keegan says: “I like to pair our Cima Cabernet with 100 Grand bars because it tastes that much.”
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups & Arriva Dessert Wine
The surprise pairing of the round up was this duo. The salty and creamy texture of the #Reesespeanutbuttercup is a great contrast to the decadent, chewy and long rich palette of our Arriva Petite Sirah Dessert Wine.
“The rich, decadent texture and bold flavors of Arriva Dessert Wine match up perfectly to the creamy peanut butter.”
What pairings will you enjoy on your hallows eve?
Happy Halloween from #TeamClifFamily!
