Wines for the Castanyada

Wines for the Castanyada

The All Saints Day festivity carries with it traditions rooted in the concept of thanksgiving for the harvest: The panellets, chestnuts and sweet potatoes that we eat on the night of the 31st October. We encourage everyone to enjoy this traditional fare together with the sweet wines of the Penedès.

Which wines go best with these delicacies? We suggest matching late harvest sweet white wines with traditional white and pine nut panellets; sweet red wines and wines aged in Soleres make a great match for chocolate, or panellets made with cocoa.

Finally, dryer aged sweet wines with their aromas of nuts and dried fruits match well with the tasty if austere, roast chestnuts.

Have a great Castanyada!
