There is more to life than pumpkin spice, believe it or not (but we’re not haters, honest! Check out our homage to the PSL here). Since we’re about a month into fall, it’s time to consider richer flavors, with warming spices, creamy textures and decadent nuances. That doesn’t mean clear spirits like vodka and moonshine are off the table – it just means you’ll need to infuse them with a little autumn.
Scratching your head about what wines to pop open during October celebrations? Well, let’s establish the fact that there are 30 other days in the month that are not Halloween, so don’t feel like all your October vino sipping has to be spooky themed (but if that’s what you’re into, check these wines out!).

I absolutely love Halloween! There is nothing more fun than a bunch of people getting creative with costumes, throwing festive parties, and toasting the chilly fall season. The problem is that it can be difficult to pair wine with such occasions. Is wine appropriate to bring to a Halloween party? Does this wine go well with candy? I spent WAY too much money on my costume, can I still get a good wine for the Monster Mash later? Lucky for you, I have put together some tricks (and treats) that may help you with your Halloween wine dilemma.
Before you freak out that there are only 11 more weeks before Christmas (cue ensuing panic in 3… 2… 1..) let’s not forget we have one mighty fun holiday approaching even quicker. We are talkin’ about Halloween, y’all. Break out the candy corn and BOO-ze because it’s time to throw a scary-good soirée.
It’s starting to feel a lot like... Halloween!
It’s been 13 years since “podcast” was deemed word of the year by the Oxford Dictionary, but we’re right smack in the middle of a podcast renaissance, people. This rebirth of a audio concept has ushered in a new era of addictive content, without all the effort of reading an article or sifting through you bookmarks to find where you left off. With over 550,000 podcasts to choose from, the only thing required to enjoy is a curious mind. Which brings us to the wine.
If stopping by the wine shop is one of the more apprehensive errands of your Wednesday grind, let us brighten the idea with two words: wine taps.
September is here and that means one thing (no, I’m not talking about football games, fall weather or deer season). September means it’s National Bourbon Heritage Month!
Every once in a while, a wine comes along that we really dig. In the case of Prospector, it dug its way into our hearts from first sip.
