Halloween At Home: Two-EE’s Winery’s wine and candy pairing guide
By: Two EE’s Winery
Trick-or-Treating may look different this year, but we can still count on one thing: raiding our kids’ candy bags after they go to bed! 😉
Pick up a bottle or two of Two-EE’s and create your very own wine and Halloween candy pairing while you have a relaxing Halloween at home.
2018 Pinot Noir and KitKat
Combining a crisp, wafer-filled Kit Kat with our 2018 Pinot Noir is a match made in Halloween heaven. The vanilla flavor of the wafer accentuates the vanilla note in the finish of our Pinot Noir. It’s too good to put down – so bite, sip, repeat!
2019 Touriga Nacional and Milky Way
The creaminess of our 2019 Touriga Nacional and the indulgent flavors of a delicious Milky Way are a wonderful pairing. This dry wine wasn’t aged in oak, so its creamy, strawberry fruit flavors combine with the milk chocolate and soft nougat of a Milky Way in a harmonious and ultra-delicious way. You’ll keep reaching for this combination all weekend.
Barreja and Twix
Our Barreja blend is considered an off-dry blend, with trace amounts of residual sugar. It’s known as a smooth and swanky wine blend that friends of every palate can agree on. Twix is the perfect match because of the combination of crumbly biscuit, milk chocolate, and caramel in every bite. The bold flavor of Twix is sweet, but not overly so, and the malted flavor of caramel complements the unbelievably smooth Barreja.
Riesling and SweeTarts
Mixing a bright, citrus-forward sweet white wine with a candy that is both sweet and tart is a great way to keep your tastebuds guessing. Our Riesling wine is a beautiful semi-sweet wine, but paired with SweeTarts, the acidic and citrus flavors tone down the sweetness in a beautiful, fruity combination. If you don’t have SweeTarts, Sour Patch Kids or Skittles would be an excellent substitution.
Vignoles and Banana Runts
On its own, the sharp, tropical fruit flavor of Vignoles can be an unexpected take on a dry white wine – but paired with Banana runts, soft, ripe fruit flavors like pineapple, key lime and banana emerge from Vignoles. It’s a dazzling combination that highlights the tropical fruit flavors of each element, without the tart finish.
Catawba and Twizzlers
Our semi-sweet rosé Catawba with a sweet, playful Twizzler is the perfect matchup. Catawba’s cotton candy and pink lemonade flavors taste distinctly sweeter with the classic strawberry-cherry flavor of Twizzlers. No Twizzlers on hand? Swedish Fish offers a similar experience in a pinch.
Plum Wine and Hershey’s Dark Chocolate (or Hot Tamales)
Our plum wine starts nice and sweet and ends with a tart note, making it perfect to pair with dark, intense chocolate. Feeling adventurous? Pair our Plum with Hot Tamales! The sweetness of the wine tones down the heat of the spicy candy and tastes unbelievably good with Hot Tamales’ cinnamon-smoke flavor.
However you celebrate Halloween this year – treat yourself!
We Hope To See You Soon!
