Girl Scout Cookies and Wine - A PERFECT Pair!

If you're starting to get your Girl Scout cookie collection taken care of, now it's time to get your wine collection going. Imagine a cozy, winter evening by the fire with a whole box of your favorite cookies and a bottle of your favorite Missouri wine to wash them down. Now you just have to decide which wine will pair the best!

Thin Mints® & Pinot Noir

These chocolaty, minty cookies are a fan favorite. They can be eaten straight out of the box, or they can be frozen, or used in delicious recipes. Our Pinot Noir is a wonderful wine with a medium plum and garnet color. The berry and spices are delicate enough to perfectly enhance the cool minty-ness of the Thin Mints. The velvety tannins and long finish are a wonderful way to end this indulgence.

Samoas® & Blushing Springs

This coconut and chocolate, caramel cookie is a delectable dessert to enjoy. The flavors can be magnified by the wine you pair them with. The berry aromas in Blushing Springs are a wonderful complement to the caramel and chocolate in the Samoa. The semi-sweet finish will be a perfect finale to this sweet cookie.

Shortbread/Trefoils® & Moscato Sparkling

This simple cookie will pair beautifully with our exciting Moscato Sparkling. The buttery sweetness of the cookie pairs with the brilliant, light straw color and tropical fruit and flower flavors. This wine is light bodied, fruit forward with a sparkling finish.

Do-Si-Dos® & Dry Rougeon

A rich, peanut butter sandwich cookie needs only one thing - a light bodied, red wine. There is a crisp, crunchy oatmeal on the outside and a creamy peanut butter inside. Our Dry Rougeon wine has no tannins and has a delightful berry finish.

Rah-Rah Raisin™ & Syrah

Whole grain oats, raisins, and Greek yogurt-flavored chunks are just a few of the gems waiting in your next bite. Pair this cookie with our Syrah wine and you may find that the currant, blackberry, and black pepper flavors become even more poignant. The subtle vanilla oak finish is a perfect way to end this delicious pairing.

Toffee-tastic™ & Seven's Red Heaven

Indulge yourself with this rich, buttery cookie. It has crunchy, golden toffee bits, and is available with a gluten-free variety. Pair this cookie with our Seven's Red Heaven and you can draw out the beautiful deep plum color and crisp fruit flavors. The distinct sweet finish pairs perfectly with the sweet toffee taste.

Tagalongs® & Norton

There's something incredibly indulgent about a layer of peanut butter and rich chocolaty coating. This is a mouth-watering treat, and paired with a cool glass of Norton, this combo will be amazing. The opaque deep plum color, tobacco, oak flavors, and the full-bodied, spicy smooth persistent finish make this a wonderful pairing option.
