Heidi Klum's Halloween Party: Candy & Wine Pairings

Posted on

Heidi Klum will bring her (glamorous) brand of frightful fun to New York City on Monday night, throwing a Halloween bash at the new Dream Downtown after a successful party in Las Vegas on Saturday.

The supermodel, who dressed as a dead person at her Sin City soiree, is known for her over-the-top annual Halloween parties.

“In our house it’s Halloween all year round,” Klum said at her Vegas bash. “It’s not as scary but [my kids] love dressing up. Look at their mom. She’s always dressing up.”

For her New York party, Klum will be serving guests an array of HobNob wines – which can all be paired up specifically with various candy.

“Candy and wine is an unusual combination and Halloween is by far the year s most unusual holiday,” Nicolas Ronteix, director of the brand’s French and Italian portfolio of wines, says.

Curious how match the right wine to your favorite candy? Here are some pairings HobNob recommends:

Chardonnay: Try this oaky wine with fruitier candy like gummy fish, gumdrops or candy corn. But try to avoid citrus flavors or sour candies that will clash with the wine.

Shiraz: Think chocolate. The blackberry flavors in the wine pair harmoniously with milk chocolate and caramels or, best of all, chocolate-covered raisins.

Pinot Noir: Peanut and chocolate candies meld well with this wine, with the saltiness of the nuts bringing out rich flavors from the Pinot.

Merlot: Hints of licorice in this wine make it the perfect compliment for almost any candy.
