Halloween is Almost Here!
Halloween is just 4 days away, and we’ve got one looming question on our minds:
Why do kids get to have all the fun?
All we’re saying is — adults deserve treats too! This Hallowine season, skip the tricks and treat yourself to a decadent pairing of Messina Hof wine and chocolate.
Chocolates layered with caramel, nougat, nuts, or other heavier flavors pair best with complex dessert wines like our Messina Hof Tawny Port.
Messina Hof Tawny Port is made through a specialized winemaking process in which we bake the barrelled wine under the Texas sun, bringing out the intense and luscious flavors that so perfectly complement complex chocolates.
Fresh and fragrant chocolates with airy fillings like York Peppermint Patties pair well with light dessert wines like our Late Harvest Orange Muscat Mistella!
The unique mistella winemaking process fortifies the Orange Muscat grapes at the beginning of the fermentation process, bringing out the beautiful and bright aromatics of the juice.
Chocolates that are crunchy and nutty match best with dynamic medium-bodied red wines. Messina Hof GSM (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre) is a complex dry red blend that can flex to fit the texture and flavors with ease.
