Trick or treating brings back so many sweet memories for us grownups and for this year you can make those memories even sweeter by grabbing some of your little goblin's candy and bottle of vino. Jared Cotter met up with Kief-Joshua Vineyards’ Kief Joshua Manning to get three fun Halloween candy parings with wine.

1.  Candy Apple and Chenin Blanc

The acidity and fruitiness of this wine should help cut through the sweetness and help cleanse the palette.

2.  Candy Corn and Champagne

What could possibly pair with the candy everyone loves to hate? When in doubt, sparkling wine or champagne is a good answer, whether it's breakfast, lunch, dinner or candy corn.

3.  Almond Joy and Zinfandel

Generally, when you're pairing a sweet wine it's good to pair it with something equally sweet. If you go back and taste the wine, you'll only get the flavors, it doesn't taste as sweet.
