An Easter Treat: Pairing Candy and Missouri Wine

April 17, 2014

Yes, traditionally Easter baskets and the sweet treats they contain are for youngsters, but just because you’re a grownup now, doesn’t mean you can’t have an holiday treat of your own. Whether there is a piece or two leftover from assembling your little ones’ baskets or indulging in a reward just for you, try pairing these Easter candy favorites with Missouri wine.

  •  Chocolate Easter Bunnies of all shapes, sizes and flavors have a Missouri wine that pairs perfectly!

White Chocolate + Sweet Sparkling Wine

Dark Chocolate + Norton

Milk Chocolate + Your favorite Missouri fruit wine (We recommend Raspberry or Cherry.)

  •  Cadbury Crème Eggs + Blackberry Wine
  • Peanut Butter and Chocolate Eggs + Concord (think adult PB&J)
  •  Jelly Beans + Catawba
  •  3 Musketeers + Chambourcin
  •  Marshmallow Peeps + Late Harvest Wine
  •  Starburst + Vidal Blanc

Missouri wine pairs well with a sweet Easter treat!
