Eek! October is coming to an end! Do you know what that means? Witches, goblins, ghosts, and all the spooks in town are coming out. Halloween is surely here, a day full of celebration and superstition. This special holiday has turned into a festival for people of all ages. Being able to dress up in costumes and become characters out of their nature. The treats that come along with this celebration are a bonus for everyone. Speaking of treats, have you notice the wicked treats available at the Rocky Top Wine Trail?!
We only bring this up because the best way to celebrate Halloween is to throw a party filled with tasty, liquid treats especially for those over 21. Therefore, the wines, ciders, and shines from the Rocky Top Wine Trail are delicious and easy to serve at your Halloween party.
Grab a bottle of Wiley Oakley, a delicious blend of Concord grapes and Blueberries from Sugarland Cellars, then pour the wine into a wine glass and garnish it with a plastic eyeball (available at any party/ Halloween shop). Just cut a slit in the eyeball that will big enough to go on the rim of the glass. Whala!! You can even freeze and peel the skin off of a grape to make an edible version. If you’re a dry wine drinker just replace the Wiley Oakley with the Sangiovese from Hillside Winery. Sangiovese is a traditional style red wine with a slight oak taste, identical color of blood! A bloody, eye-filled, wine drink for your vampire guest!
Another great wicked treat to have at your party is cider! The Old Mill Winery, located at the Old Mill Historic District of Pigeon Forge, sells cider by a growler for only $15. They have four great flavors available, which you can sample for FREE before purchasing! Our personal favorite is the Cherry Lavender. It has an amazing, tart cherry flavor with a touch of lavender. Pour the Cider into a punch bowl and garnish your glasses with some spider rings! For an edible version, take a clean screwdriver and punch holes in a fresh apple. Then, carefully slide some gummy worms into the wholes and add them to your punch bowl!
