There’s something spooky around the corner… Halloween! Whether you’re planning on spending October 31st answering the door for trick-or-treaters, dressing up for a costume party, or simply watching scary movies at home, you deserve a treat of your own, and Just Grapes has the perfect line-up of sinister spirits and sips for you.
Something wicked and bubbly this way comes, and it rhymes with “witch”… the makers of the popular Bitch Grenache have released Bitch Bubbly, a blend of Shiraz and Grenache, in both full-bottle 750 ml and “baby Bitch” 178 ml sizes! The mini-Bitches ($5.99) make perfect treats to tuck into any grown-ups pumpkin bucket, and the sweet candied strawberry flavors make other Halloween treats seem like duds. And the price is sure to make you scream.
If you’re looking for something a little darker, so twisted that the label is actually upside-down, try Evil Cabernet ($12.49) by R Wines (the makers of Bitch). Or, allow yourself to be tempted by the creepy skeleton beckoning from the label of Temptation Zinfandel ($14.49).
Dressing up as a demon this Halloween? Forget the pitchfork and make Diablita Red Blend ($16.49) your accessory–sure to bring out the devil in any of us.
If Halloween is a special occasion for you–a dinner party, an anniversary, a partner’s birthday–pick up a bottle of Return of the Living Red, a blend of 68% Cab Sauvignon and 32% Touriga, which “promises to be thicker than blood, hold more body than a city morgue and more tannin than a mouthful of fish hooks.”
Whatever your plans, make a stop at Just Grapes… if you dare! And stop by between 4 pm and 7 pm on Friday, October 30, or between 2 pm and 4 pm on Halloween for a complimentary Halloween tasting!
