Don’t forget about our October wines of the month, which are all haunted. Here are four of them.
Just when you think it’s safe to cross your living room so you can take two new bottles of wine to your guests, Dracula appears with two bottles that you must try, “Or else.” Dracula realizes that the two bottles you have are really good, but Dracula has to be Dracula and force his wine selections on everyone. Look below the photo to see what Dracula has to say about these four wines, and then grab them for yourself.
“Domaine Barou Avec Les Temps, Charnas, Rhône Valley, France
The vineyard sits on a plateau overlooking the Rhône Valley. A blend of Roussanne, Vermentino, and Viognier, this beautiful, fragrant and delicious wine is a true work of art. Plus, I look like a cross between Ralph Fiennes and Nicholas Cage.

“Angelo Negro Unfiltered Dry Brachetto, Piedmont, Italy
Bright and fresh with hints of violet and rose. This wine is pleasantly tart, which makes it the perfect pairing with any fatty foods. Try with prosciutto for the ultimate treat, or with anything free of garlic, if you’d like to drink with me — also, I have an issue with gluten. Chill, shake and serve!

“Ameztoi Stimatum Red Txakoli, Basque Country, Spain
100% Hondarrabi Beltza, a native varietal that is mostly used for rosé. This is a badass red wine traditionally paired with squid prepared in its own ink. Try chilled and often. And then try it again while looking deep into my eyes.

“Chateau D’Aqueria Tavel Rosé, Rhône Valley, France
This region is known for making some of the most full-bodied, luscious rosés in the world. This is bone-dry and full of deep fruit flavors. By the way, I had to split up with my girlfriend after her blood test — she wasn’t my type.
