How to Pair The Halloween Candy with Wines

Posted: Updated:

WAKE UP YOUR WEEKEND - Halloween is Saturday night and the kids will be coming home with bags and buckets full of candy, but what about the grown-ups?

Well, you should think about having some wine handy because wines can actually pair up nicely with Halloween treats.

Friday morning on Wake Up Northwest we spoke with Phil and Ethen Warren Winemaker and Assistant Winemaker at Tucannon Cellars in Benton City.

Phil Warren says if you would like to have some wine with your very sweet candies like Candy Corn, try a Riesling or Rosé.

Chardonnay pairs well with Skittles. For Nerds, you can try a Champagne.

For your chocolates and caramels, have a Merlot on hand. But, for the darker chocolates, you may try a Cabernet or a Syrah.

Tucannon Cellars is hold a Hall-O-Wine celebration on Saturday for details, click here.
