Hallowine: Spooky picks for ghouls and boys
I love a theme, so I love Hallowe’en! Here are some on-theme wines to bring to your costume party, to offer cold parents from the neighbourhood as trick-or-treat on through, or to enjoy in the dark in your basement (if you’re that house on the street).
The two whites are from Australian winemakers Some Young Punks who have some of the most unique, creative label designs in the business (and they are also pretty fun to hang with). In addition, we have madness, (were)wolves, and classic Gothic represented.
In Manitoba, all of these wines are available at Banville and Jones Wine Co., and if you head in there on Hallowe’en day, you can try the 3 Rings Shiraz at the tasting bar! (Click on the wines to take you to Banville & Jones’s online community, CornerVine, to check prices ad ratings.)
