Wine and Savory Treat Pairings for a Spooktacular Experience
Chocolate-covered pretzels and Cabernet Franc
If you’re a fan of the sweet and salty combination of chocolate-covered pretzels, you’ll love pairing them with Casarena Lauren Single Vineyard Cabernet Franc Agrelo 2020. This wine is a true masterpiece crafted by experienced winemaker Martina Galeano. With a perfect blend of red and black fruit flavors and a subtle hint of grilled red bell peppers, this wine is sure to impress. The moderate tannins and liveliness of the wine complement the complex layers of flavors in the chocolate-covered pretzels, creating a genuinely delightful pairing.
Calabaza en Tacha and Petit Sirah
For a taste of autumn, try pairing Spellbound Petite Sirah with Calabaza en Tacha, a traditional Mexican dessert made with sweet pumpkin. First, Petite Sirah is opulent and medium bold. Therefore, this wine is a perfect match for the dessert, with its luscious and juicy taste, notes of blackberries, blueberries, vanilla beans, and velvety mouthfeel. The American oak aging process adds subtle vanilla notes that perfectly complement the sweet pumpkin flavors.
Spellbound wines are made from California grapes nurtured by the sun and balanced by the moon. On the one side, they are approachable, expressive, and true to their roots. On the other hand, they bring magic to every occasion, from bonfires to harvest meals.
This wine and savory treat pairings is ideal for Dia de Muertos.
Brie Cheese, M&Ms Cheese Board and Champagne
And for champagne lovers, why not pair it with Brie cheese with a twist of M&Ms? This classic pairing is a match made in heaven. The creaminess and texture of the cheese work perfectly with the Billecart-Salmon Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru champagne. For a spooktacular experience add some spooky decoration. For instance, you can add M&Ms to bring some color, grapes or add dry fruits. Moreover, this pairing creates a luxurious and indulgent experience perfect for unwinding after a long day of trick or treating.
So go ahead and indulge in something different this spooky season. With these wine and treat pairings, you will discover a new world of flavors and create unforgettable memories.
