Frighteningly Good Halloween Wine Ideas

Halloween isn't just for the kids!  Halloween is the 3rd largest party holiday in the US, behind New Year's Even and Super Bowl Sunday.  This spooky holiday is almost as much about stuffing your face with candy and having a drink with friends as it is dressing up in costumes and carving pumpkins. Seven Springs Winery is here to help you get a little creative with your wine this Halloween.  Stop by your favorite winery at the Lake of the Ozarks to pick up some wine and try one of these delicious drinks or pairings!

Candy and Wine Pairings

Pinot Noir
Red Licorice pairs nicely because the Pinot Noir already has some cherry undertones.

Hershey's Dark Chocolate's bitterness makes a statement with the powerful Syrah.

Muscato Sparkling
Skittles and Starburst Candy pair well with the tropical fruit flavors found in our Muscato Sparkling.

Butterfinger pairs well with a buttery Chardonel.

Blushing Springs
Nerds and candy corn pair well with sweetness of this sparkling red wine.
