Halloween Wine Pairing: What Goes with Candy Corn?

Halloween candy — and wine? Yes, you really can have them together! Here’s how.

After a long night of trick-or-treating with the kiddies you’re probably sneaking into their candy bags enjoying the fruits of their labors. Why not pair those Smarties with a glass of wine?

Think it can’t be done? Think again! Master Sommelier and Director of Wines at Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants Emily Wines (yes, that’s her real name!) suggests these sweet pairings. Cheers!
