It’s mid October, the leaves are starting to fall, and the nights are beginning to get darker and spookier. That means it’s almost Halloween, the one time of the year you can scare the crap out of your friends, family and neighbors and get away with it. It’s also a time of year when the creepiest wine labels start popping up on shelves everywhere. We mean that in an endearing way, of course. When the kids are screaming trick or treat on every doorstep, you just might need a treat for yourself. Here are some hallo-wines that you’ll be dying to taste.
The perfect wine to swig while you’re binge watching Walking Dead episodes so much that your eyes fall out. This Zinfandel comes from Chateau Diana in California. It has a nice dry, dark berry taste with a hint of zombie blood. We’re kidding about the zombie blood.. We think. Visit www.chateaud.com/zombie to find out where you can get your hands on some.
Deep in the woods there is a spirit that whispers, “You should drink this delicious wine”, and if it did, it would be right. Lois M. Martini’s Ghost Pines Wine is to die for, with a dry, yet slightly sweet berry red blend, it will have you screaming for more.
Some days you just want to poison your family members, and Halloween is the easiest disguise for your disgust. Okay, maybe not really poison them, but in this case a Zinfandel will cure your woes. Armida Winery’s Poizin is the best of both worlds and perfect for any family celebration. But be warned this wine is the opposite of sweet. Be ready for the driest red you’ve tasted. If you can handle little Billy lassoing you in his Cowboy costume, I’m sure you can handle this. Visit Armida.com for more info.
As omnivores, us humans dine on a wide range of delectable plants and meats, but once you take a sip of Carnivor Cabernet Sauvignon you cannot fight the urge to dine on your favorite beef and swine. This deep and heavy red will transform any vegan into a meat eating zombie. All you blood thirsty wine-os should visit Carnivor Winery’s website to find out where to purchase this fine wine.
All of these wines make us want to haunt our local shops and restaurants eerily demanding, “Give us more BOoOze”. What is your favorite Halloween themed wine? Tweet us or mention us on Instagram @corkguru so we can take a sip.
