And you do not need a sommelier to help you get it right. For a next-level experience, all you need is delicious candy and the right glass of wine.

Here are 13 Perfect Wine + Candy Pairings you will Love:

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup for Halloween wine + candy pairing

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup

With the perfect balance of sweet and salty. Pair your peanut butter cup pairs nicely with a dark Jammy red like a Cabernet Sauvignon. Or the cherry aromas of a Morlot.

Kit Kat for Halloween wine + candy pairing

My Halloween is never complete without a Kit Kat bar. And the perfect way to enjoy these wafers is a Pinot Noir or a Merlot. 

Opt for a Cabernet Sauvignon glass if you are enjoying a white chocolate Kit Kat bar.

Starburst for Halloween wine + candy pairing

Bring out the flavors with a slightly sweet and slightly fizzy Moscato d’Asti.

Gummy Worms for Halloween wine + candy pairing

Who does not love a few gummy worms? But I get the same comment every time I purchase them “they have no taste” well, try it with a glass of Rosé, and it will become your new favorite candy.

Candy Corn for Halloween wine + candy pairing

Candy Corn

Candy corn is one of my favorites. They are sweet and butter and pair perfectly with a nice buttery Chardonnay that does not overpower the candy corn.

Sour Patch for Halloween wine + candy pairing

The perfect balance to this tart candy is a glass of Riesling.

Snickers Bar for Halloween wine + candy pairing

A Tawny Port complements a snickers bar perfectly, but if you’d like wine as complex as this delicious goodness, then a Cabernet Sauvignon.

Milky Way for Halloween wine + candy pairing

A nice glass of Tawny Port with a Milky Way bar is an excellent way to celebrate.

Hershey for Halloween wine + candy pairing

For this gooey milk goodness, a glass of Pinot Noir or Merlot is a perfect companion, but a glass of Zinfandel makes this candy a little less overwhelming.

Skittles for Halloween wine + candy pairing

Are fruity goodness, but it can be overly sweet.  An off-dry Rosé pairs perfectly, but a lovely white Sauvignon Blanc is a great option to cut through all the sweetness without sacrificing taste.

M & M for Halloween wine + candy pairing

A medium-bodied fruity red Pinot Noir for this melt in your mouth goodness.

Malted Milk Balls for Halloween wine + candy pairing
