It was a dark, dark night, there was a knife…and they were thirsty. So they cut the foil off the top of one of these special Halloween wine bottles, pulled the cork and had a deliciously fun Hallow’s Eve.
These Flora Spring wines are the perfect tale for Halloween night. The winery’s ghoulish fetish has historic roots: Flora Springs is one of the original Napa Valley ghost wineries, built in the mid to late 1900s and later abandoned for decades.
These limited production wines sell out fast, but you can keep them in mind for the next dark, dark night
– Ghost Winery 2013 Malbec ($55) – a deep, dark, full-bodied wine.
– All Hallow’s Eve 2013 Cabernet Franc ($50) – a mix of dark cherry and red plum fruits with warm baking spices.
You’ll want to see the label of the latter wine, in particular: florasprings.com/store.
