Girl Scout Cookies . . . and Wine? This just got interesting!

The right wine for you- 6 bottles for just $34.99!

It’s Girl Scout cookie time!  And we all know what that means . . . an open box is an empty box.  So before you scarf down the last of the Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs, check out this list of wine pairings for your Girl Scout cookies by Kris Margerum, Wine Director at Napa Valley’s Auberge du Soleil.

I just happened to have an open bottle of Broadbent 10-Year Old Malmsey Madeira and a box of Tagalongs, so I put that pairing to the test.  File this under Fun Things to do on Monday . . . 


Oh wow . . . this pairing is going to get me into all kinds of trouble!  The Madeira is a perfect compliment to the peanut butter and chocolate.  And vice versa.  My bottle of Madeira isn’t going to stay empty for long now that I’ve discovered this pairing . . .

I’m going out to find a Girl Scout so I can add to my cookie hoard.  Because if you think Girl Scout cookies are addicting by themselves, wait until you try them with wine!!

Have you ever paired a wine with a Girl Scout Cookie?  What’s your favorite?
