Halloween Posole Party!

Wine Sisterhood Halloween Party

It’s time for a party! This Halloween, we’re going all out. We’re bringing out our best and spookiest décor, setting the table with some of our favorite wines and preparing a classic Posole to warm everyone up.

Serving Posole on Halloween is a Napa Valley tradition. This hearty, tummy-warming Mexican stew brings together chicken, pork and hominy, in a base of savory red chili sauce. Posole is perfect with a glass of wine (pairings below!) and a handful of Halloween candy for dessert! 

Here are some photos and tips from our holiday party preparations:

Fun props like witch hats, spiders and spider webs can help create a spooky and lighthearted feel.

A simple black lace tablecloth makes a beautiful base.

A little bit of glitter and sparkle can do wonders!

Set the table with etched glasses for a very “Hocus Pocus” touch

Wine Sisterhood Halloween Party - Girl & Dragon Malbec

This Halloween party wouldn’t be complete without a bottle of Girl & Dragon Malbec. Gorgeous and delicious! Girl & Dragon also pairs well with a hearty dish like Posole. 

Wine Sisterhood Halloween Party - PromisQous Red

Or try pairing PromisQous Red with a bowl of Posole, the wine will complement the chile flavors well.
