Yes, there is really is a wine for every occasion. And we love that! We chose a bottle of Côtes du Rhône wine to go with all of your fall festivities, even the chocolate you will nibble on while you wait for tick-or-treaters.

To be honest, most Halloween punches leave us wanting or with a terrible sugar headache. Rather than dip into the mystery bowl, we’d rather just stick to wine. French Côtes du Rhône wines are the perfect deep, red color to give off a dramatic hue in a Halloween goblet.
Or, if you’re just hosting a cozy fall day complete with braised beef or a crockpot full of chili, this elegant red wine with smooth tannins is the perfect pair. We specifically chose the Les Dauphins Côtes du Rhône Réserve Rouge 2016 ($12.99) to try with popcorn while watching scary flicks, Halloween candy, a simple cheese plate with a side salad and our favorite fall foods. It passed the matching test with all of the foods!
With a hint of black pepper spice and notes of dark berries, reach for this bottle as you nibble on chocolate while you wait for the trick-or-treaters to show up. (And if they don’t, more chocolate for you!) This bottle seriously speaks to fall and should be your go-to at the adult Halloween party.
