Halloween Candy and Wine Pairing Ideas - Plus Scary Movies to Match

by Monica Bennion on October 23, 2016

We've taken the Halloween candy and wine pairing to the next level and added a scary movie to match! 

Shining RL Barbera Snickers.jpg

Mountain Selection Barbera
"The Shining"
Snickers

The 1980 movie "The Shining" starring Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall is a disturbing and barbaric Halloween cult classic that pairs well with our shining star, Mountain Selection Barbera.  Filled with plenty of nuts, we think this movie and wine will pair quite well with Snickers.

J&S Reserve Barbera
"The Silence of the Lambs"
Skittles

The 1991 movie "The Silence of the Lambs", perfectly blends elements of crime and horror, and at times in an elegant and reserved manner. Pair this American thriller with our J&S Reserve Barbera. Skip the liver and fava beans. Pair this psychological thriller with something lively and fruity like Skittles.

Dracula 1869 Candy Corn.jpg

Vineyard 1869 Zinfandel
"Dracula"
Candy Corn

The 1931 version of "Dracula" starring Bela Lugosi, is a classic scary movie and pairs with our time-honored and historical Vineyard 1869 Zinfandel.  Candy corn, created in 1880, around the same time Bela Lugosi was born (1882), is the quintessential candy for this movie and wine pairing...even better, these sweet treats even look like little fangs.

Forte
"It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown"
Mr. Goodbar

A movie for all ages, this timeless classic features the Peanuts gang celebrating Halloween and awaiting the arrival of "The Great Pumpkin".  Pair this sweet and charming movie with our decadent and delicious dessert wine, Forte. And nothing goes better than the peanuts and milk chocolate of a Mr. Goodbar.

Frankenstein InZINerator Hot Tamales.jpg

InZINerator
"Frankenstein"
Buttered Popcorn & Hot Tamales

This 1931 vintage classic features an obsessed scientist piecing together body parts to make a living creature. This movie pairs with our scientifically pieced together InZINerator; a masterpiece of blending and skill.  Normal, no...yummy, yes! Mix together buttered popcorn and Hot Tamales for a shockingly good treat.

Mountain Selection Syrah
"The Nightmare Before Christmas"
Junior Mints

In this 1993 family-friendly movie, Jack Skellington is bored with the same old thing every Halloween, and after stumbling into Christmas Town, he tries to bring some of that same cheer back to Halloween Town.  Our lively Mountain Selection Syrah, paired with Junior Mints, will keep you cheerful during the movie and all holiday season.
