Whether you’re a parent who goes trick-or-treating with your kids or love getting dressed up with your gals before hitting the town on Halloween, the best part about this holiday?! Pairing wine with the yummy leftover candy. We call it, “Hallo-wine” and it’s one of our favorite holidays. (Who doesn’t love a nostalgic halloween candy + wine pairing!?)
Check out the best halloween candy to pair with your Luna Nuda wines:
Luna Nuda Pinot Grigio + Gummy Bears. Pinot Grigio is always a safe bet with chewy, non-chocolate candies, but it’s especially delicious with gummy bears. Our bright and crisp Pinot Grigio is a great match with fruity, chewy and the oily texture of gummy bears. Your palate will feel light while you indulge in this pairing.
Luna Nuda Rosé + Starbursts. Starbursts are best paired with a more fruity wine, like a Rosé made from richer grapes. Luna Nuda Rose is made up of primarily Montepulciano grapes (90%) and Merlot (10%). Montepulciano is an Italian variety that has a thick skin and is a little darker in color than other Rosés. The acidity in this wine will ease the chewiness of starbursts candies.
Luna Nuda Red Blend + Dark Chocolate Kit Kat Bar. A dark chocolate treat pairs best with a heavier wine, like our Luna Nuda 2016 Red Blend, made up of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), Merlot (30%) & Lagrein (30%). The dark fruit in the wine is a match made in heaven with the dark chocolate of the melt-in-your-mouth, break us off a piece of that Kit Kat bar!
Luna Nuda Prosecco + Snickers. The bubbles in Luna Nuda Prosecco will balance out the richness of all the flavors that comes along with a snickers bar: chocolate, caramel & the crunchiness of the peanuts. The fruitiness of pears and green apples will compliment the chocolate and caramel flavors, while the acid will cut through the nuttiness from the peanuts. When in doubt, bubbles and crunch are a great pairing!
