Try these fun pairings of your favorite wines and candies

Halloween is almost here and Christmas isn't far behind it.  Many people will be throwing parties and enjoying the season.  And what are two things that you can find being served at almost every Halloween or Christmas party?  Good wine, like the delicious sweet wines from Castello del Poggio; and candy!  Why not pair them together?  Here are a few pairing ideas for you to try! 

‘Spooky Pleasures’  & Swedish Fish 

6oz. Castello del Poggio Moscato (SRP: $12.99)
2oz. Junmai Sake
.5oz. fresh blackberry puree

Our ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until blended and pour into a large wine glass filled with ice. Garnish with the plumpest Swedish Fish from the bag.

Not in the mood for a cocktail? We've got you covered with these ideas:

Castello del Poggio Sweet Red (SRP: $12.99) & Peanut M&Ms

The bright raspberry-violet with fruity notes of apricot and peach tastes best when chilled. Pair the Sweet Red with the saltiness of the pretzel M&Ms and you’re set for a delightful evening.


Castello del Poggio Sweet Rosé (SRP: $12.99) & Starburst

Juicy and refreshing when chilled.  Bright raspberry-violet in color, this vino frizzante is very fruity with notes of apricot and peach. Its full body, mineral notes, velvety tannin, and crisp, soft mouth feel are highlighted when chilled, and paired with your favorite Starburst (should be pink to match the drink, but to each their own).

Please be safe and drink responsibly.
