Perfect Pairings: Girl Scout Cookies & La Finquita Wine

It’s that wonderful time of year – no, not Christmas (though that’s one of our favorites too!) – it’s the season of Girl Scout Cookies! Now, just about everyone loves these delightful treats, after all, they’re so delicious and who can tell those adorable little girls outside the store “no” when they ask if you’d like to buy some Girl Scout Cookies? We sure can’t.

You’ve probably seen Girl Scout Cookie pairing guides for all sorts of beverages pop up in your social feeds, because believe it or not, cookies DO pair well with things other than milk! We happen to think they pair perfectly with wine…and with this in mind, the La Finquita Team gathered around the center island of the winery house with half a dozen boxes of cookies and 15 bottles of La Finquita wine to painstakingly taste test and experiment on your behalf to create the best La Finquita wine and Girl Scout Cookie pairing guide for your tasting pleasure. A true sacrifice…really.

 

 

 

Needless to say, it was a delightful evening for the team and our tastebuds…and as you might imagine, plenty of shenanigans and laughs ensued. We hope you enjoy these pairings as much as we enjoyed putting them together for you.

As an added bonus, we have some fabulous Girl Scouts who will be at the winery THIS WEEKEND to help supply all of your wine and cookie pairing needs. You can drink wine AND support our local Girl Scouts – it’s win all around! Come try them out and let us know your favorites!

About Jess Koehler

I’m the co-owner and winemaker at La Finquita Winery & Vineyard. The team calls me “boss lady,” but you can call me Jess. When I’m not in the winery or vineyard, you’ll probably find me with family and friends, playing at Disneyland or listening to music with delicious food and a glass of bubbles. Say hi the next time you’re at the tasting room. But be forewarned, if you strike up a conversation about a good book, music or a universe like Star Wars or Buffy, we may talk for hours.
