Full of aromas of crisp fruits, Chardonnay, which is generally paired with nuts and vanilla makes for a great fall wine. Pairing this wine with pumpkin-flavored desserts such as pumpkin pie as well as pumpkin spice cookies is the best way to finish your holiday meals.
Along with cooling weather comes the desire for red wine. Rioja is a Spanish red, aged in oak for a year; it usually has dark berry and oak flavors, accompanied with a smooth, spicy finish. This classic red will go great with pumpkin soup, dazzled with pumpkin spice croutons or even roasted pumpkin seeds.
Rosé is often considered a summer wine, but the right rosé can go a long way any time of the year. Pairing a dry rosé with a savory snack is the way to go. Pumpkin spice kale chips, pumpkin spice Triscuits, or even pumpkin spice Chex Mix are all fall snacks that will go great with a variety of rosés.
If you’ve eaten all you can eat but are still in the mood for that pumpkin spice twist, you’re in luck! There’s a pumpkin spice wine spritzer that’s super easy to make! Just take any dry white, pumpkin spice liquor (yes, it exists!), and some seltzer to top it off and you’re good to go!
