Whitehall Lane’s Halloween-Perfect Pairings

You don’t have to be a kid to revel in the fun of Halloween. Whether it’s sampling the treats you’re handing out, or pillaging the spoils from one of your children, there is a way to pair nearly every Halloween sweet with a glass of Whitehall Lane wine. Moreover, the small serving size of most Halloween candies creates the perfect opportunity to host a tasting party for the adults who want to indulge on the spookiest night of the year.

Check out these Whitehall Lane Halloween-perfect pairings:

2013 Las Brisas Vineyard Pinot Noir and Snickers

The salty-sweet flavor of peanuts and caramel pairs exceptionally with the ample weight of this Whitehall Lane Pinot Noir.

2012 Leonardini Vineyard Merlot and KitKats

Milk chocolate and the wafer textures enhance the complex and elegant plum and black cherry aromas of this vintage. No KitKats in this year’s stash? Try substituting with plain M&Ms.

2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Junior Mints

The minty core of Junior Mints provides a cool, fresh flavor profile that compliments the textures of Malbec and prominent flavors of cabernet sauvignon.

2013 Belmuscato and Caramel Apple

Caramel brings out orange citrus, ripe peach, apricot, and honey notes. The crisp sweet and spicy aromas of our 2013 Belmuscato make the tangy flavors of green apple come through.

2009 Belforte and Peanut Butter Cups

Our Belforte dessert wine accentuates the nutty flavors and smooth textures of peanut butter cups. But claim your peanut butter cups quickly. This is a Halloween candy that tends to be snapped up. For more Halloween pairing inspiration, check out this infographic created by Vivino.
