Popcorn Pairings for Awards Season

Awards season is here! If you’re anything like us, we love celebrating this season because it’s another excuse to drink wine! For an Oscar-themed party, we’ve put together some delightful popcorn pairings We hope you enjoy!

DARK CHOCOLATE SEA SALT POPCORN

10 cups popped popcorn

4 Tablespoons grapeseed oil

6 Tablespoons hot chocolate powder

Sea salt to taste

Sprinkle with grated dark chocolate

Pair this delectable popcorn with our 29Twelve Dessert wine, which is full of blackberry fruit with hints of quince. Baking spices like cardamom and nutmeg add richness. Our dessert wine finished with sweet tobacco and a long warm finish, which will pair nicely with the decadence of this chocolate popcorn! What a treat!

MIMOSA POPCORN

10 cups popped popcorn

4 Tablespoons grapeseed oil

1/4 cup fresh orange juice

5 Tablespoons vanilla protein powder

Zest of 1 orange

Sea salt to taste

Pair this popcorn with our Italian Prosecco or the Italian Pinot Grigio! The Pinot Grigio has hints of fresh flowers and lemon and lime, which will compliment the orange zest used in the popcorn. The Prosecco will add a bubbly sweetness to the popcorn, but is not too overly sweet.

MAPLE BACON POPCORN

10 cups popped popcorn

4 Tablespoons grapeseed oil

1/4 Cup maple syrup

4 pieces cooked bacon, chopped

Sea salt to taste

Bacon lovers rejoice! Pair this sweet and salty popcorn with our Napa Valley Reserve Red Blend. Red blends are full of personality and this wine is stuffed with fruit. Pretty black cherry and plum flesh deliver juiciness to a palate full of fine grain tannin. Aromatic cinnamon and dark cocoa persist well into the finish. The fruitiness of this wine compliments the savoriness of the bacon. YUM!

STRAWBERRY POPCORN

10 cups kettle corn

1/2 cup dehydrated strawberries, ground into powder

This recipe is very easy to make, you only need two ingredients! Pair this popcorn with our Sonoma County Reserve Rose Wine, which has notes of white rose and juicy blackberry. All the berries will compliment each other and it will taste just like a fruit salad!
