Which Wine Pairs Best With a Mint Oreo???
While I’m asked about wine and food pairings all the time at work, I’m finding myself thinking about these more and more outside of work. Just the other day, I made my husband linger with me in front of the Little Debbie snack section at HEB so that I could consider which wines would pair best with which snacks.
Me: Man, who doesn’t love a Swiss Roll?
Me: You’d have to have a dry red with that one. But maybe a lighter one.
Me: Oh, look! Strawberry Shortcake Rolls!
Me: How great would they be with a sparkling wine?
When we made it down the aisle to the Oreo section, my brain really got working…and he walked on by. So, it’s safe to say that while my mind is consumed with the upcoming wine and Oreo pairing at TWC, my husband has other things on his mind. But really, is there anything more fun to think about than which wines pair best with which Oreo flavors?
Did you know that, since the birth of the Oreo, Nabisco has created over 65 new Oreo flavors? And that in 2021 alone, five new flavors have been released? Clearly, I have my wine and Oreo work cut out for me. And what great work it’s going to be! To reap the fruits of my labor, join the Oreo pairing fun on Saturday, May 8. I might even have a surprise or two up my sleeve.
And speaking of surprises up sleeves, our management team has been busy planning some new educational events for the coming weeks. Interested in seeing what all the wine and yoga fun is about? We’re trying it out. Wondering how our different Tempranillos stack up against one another…and how our Texas Tempranillos compare to an Old World one? We’ve got you covered. Wanting to pair your favorite wines with your favorite BBQ? We’ll show you how.
We’re leaving no stone unturned in our effort to bring you the best of Texas wines in as many fun and unique ways as possible. To learn more about these and other events happening at TWC, visit our website /events/Oreo-and-Wine-Pairing or call 830-997-7470. Whether you’re nibbling Oreos, working on your downward-facing dog (while balancing a glass of wine), weighing the relative merits of different Tempranillos, or tucking away some Texas BBQ, you’re sure to have a good time!
