Wicked White Trebbiano

This moonlight concoction will send your taste buds on an enchanted trip through flavors of white peach, basil, green apple, and seashell. This wine pairs fantastically with a gourmet  caramel apple. Eat if you dare! This pairing is wicked-good!

Bottle Price: $23

Haunted Cellars Dry Muscat

The Haunted Cellars Dry Muscat is a versatile wine that has startling orange blossom flavors and color! This wine would pair well with the supernatural, cinnamon spice of Hot Tamales or chocolate covered cinnamon bears. Hair-raising notes of jasmine would cloak dark chocolate in subtle sweetness and honeysuckle will subdue the acidity of ghostly, white goat cheese. Be careful! These sensations are likely to linger and could haunt your ride home… 

Bottle Price: $23

Harvest Moon Red Wine Blend

The Harvest Moon is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Fire burn and cauldron bubble! The deep fruit flavor in the dazzling Harvest Moon Red Blend will balance the savory essence and texture. One sip will surely cast a spell on you and a few glasses could have you acting a little strange! It is safe to say that this wine is spell-binding, spine-tingling and more spook-tacular than the rest. We recommend sipping on this as you indulge in your favorite chocolate candy bar! 

Bottle Price: $30
