Each Halloween, Vivino puts together a new candy and wine pairing guide. Eating all the candy we want is a common childhood dream of adulthood, but did we also imagine drinking wine with it? For all of Vivino’s candy guides, check out this year’s, 2017’s and 2016’s.
Once the kids have had their tricks and treats, open the leftovers (if you have any) or raid the kids’ stash (after careful negotiating) and uncork one of these bottles.
