Survive Halloween with these Campo Viejo inspired trick or treats!
Wine and Candy Pairings
There’s really only one way to deal with kids ringing your doorbell all night — open a bottle of Campo Viejo and pair it with your favorite Halloween treats. The sooner the candy runs out the sooner you get to stop giving it out.
Granacha: Fruit flavored candies like gummy bears, pair well with Garnacha, strengthening the strawberry and raspberry fruits in the wine.
Tempranillo: Works best with softer/creamy candies. The softness of the Tempranillo pairs perfectly with the lighter vanilla flavors in things like cookie dough bites, candy corn and peanut butter cups.
Reserva: Pairs best with richer/more decadent candies such as dark chocolate or caramels, these heavier flavors compliment the velvety tannins and fruits found in the Reserva and last through the finish of both the wine and the candy.
Cava Brut Reserva: heath bar is the perfect match, the acidity of the Cava works with the buttery heath to make a lighter taste that highlights the caramel sweetness. Anything fruity will also work, bringing out the bright fruit notes in the Cava.
Cava Brut Rose: Sour and gummy candies work best, the sour is a nice balance with the sweetness that brings out the fruit in the Cava.
