wine and candy

If you and your friends love to share wine, a wine and candy pairing party is the perfect way to enjoy a summer night!

Without a doubt, summer is the best time to throw a party. Whether it’s just a few close friends or the whole neighborhood, everyone will appreciate a party thrown by someone who knows how to entertain. Half the entertaining battle is providing the right kinds of foods, especially desserts. If you and your friends love to share wine, a wine and candy pairing party is the perfect way to enjoy a summer night!

For the Chocolate Lovers

It’s summer, so some summer-themed candy for your wine and candy pairing party would be an excellent touch. For your chocolate-loving friends, provide some chocolate-filled seashells. Their bright colors and delicate crunch will bring your summer festivities to the next level. These candies will pair best with a rich red wine like a port. For the dark chocolate lovers, plate some beautiful dark chocolate truffles and pair them with an Aglianico. These flavors complement each other well, allowing you to experience these flavors as you never have before.

Pairings for the Super Sweet Tooth

You probably have a good mix of friends that choose richer candies and some that have a super sweet tooth. Or maybe some of your friends like it all! For the super sweet tooth friends, arrange a plate of gourmet gummies and pair them with a mineral-driven Chardonnay. For the sour and sweet candy lovers, pair sour gummies with a very dry Riesling or a Sauvignon blanc. If you want to add some fun and colorful lollipops into the assortment, try pairing brightly-colored crystal sticks with sparkling rosé!

Peanut Butter Lover Pairings

For friends who love peanut butter, providing delicious pairings is easy. Stop by your local gourmet candy store and pick up some peanut butter cups or chocolate-peanut butter fudge. Pair these with a fruity-flavored Lambrusco. Your friends will love the wine and candy themed summer party so much that you may consider making it a summer tradition!
