Putting a sweet twist on the low-brow wine pairings we've seen in the past, Vintage Enoteca is taking the bold step of pairing Halloween candy with boutique wines. From October 28th to 31st, Vintage will present "HallowedVine," a sequel to the fright night wine fest the Hollywood wine bar experimented with last year.
$25 buys you four wines paired with some of your favorite cavity-causers, be it a flirty bouquet of Skittles paired with Avinyo Vi d'Agulla's 2010 Muscat Blanc a Petit Grains or those insouciant Junior Mints matched with Banyuls Grenache Noir. Sounds a little spine-tingling to be sure! Check out the planned pairings below, if you dare (muhahaha, etc.).
Smarties & Skittles
Muscat Blanc à Petit Grains: Avinyó Vi d’Agulla, Catalonia, Spain, 2010
Viognier/Chardonnay Blend: JL Bonaccorsi, Santa Barbara County,
