Okay, I know the title of this post is a little silly, but apple desserts are probably one of my favorite options to pair with wine, so I couldn’t help but get a little goofy today. Why are apples and wine so great together? Not only are there a number of wines with apple notes (which is a good jumping off point for pairing), but a lot of the spices and accompaniments in apple desserts go well with wine, too. You can pair apples with chocolate, caramel, peanut butter, cinnamon, nutmeg…the list could easily keep going. This opens up a whole slew of wine pairing options beyond what you could get with just plain apples. To help you narrow down the pairing options, here are our favorite apple dessert and wine pairing picks:
There are plenty of other flavor combinations to try and a highly recommend you do some experimenting, too. If you find a new favorite, let me know! I love hearing about what you enjoy!
