Over the past several years, wine has begun shedding its supercilious reputation as drinkers began pairing it with more everyday options–Grand Cru Chablis and a Big Mac being one of our favorite combos. Now, Oreo and that bastion of budget vino Barefoot have come together to create a cookie-flavored red blend inspired by the Nabisco brand’s crispy Thins.
“Everyone knows that red wine pairs well with chocolate, but Oreo Thins and America’s most loved wine, Barefoot Wine, are collaborating to take this classic combination to a whole new delicious level,” Sydney Kranzmann, brand manager for Oreo Thins. “Oreo Thins cookies have always been the perfect Oreo cookie for adults — so we are excited to showcase a new grown-up pairing.”
Bottled at 13% ABV, Barefoot cookie-flavored red blend offers aromas of chocolate and tasting notes that include more chocolate, cookies and crème, and oak, alongside flavors of blackberry and dark cherries. “We had such a great time exploring the different flavor combinations, ultimately pairing the signature flavors of Oreo Thins cookies with a blend of our bright, berry-flavored red wine,” explained Barefoot winemaker Jen Wall.
“We can’t wait for our Oreo Thins fans (21+, of course!) to enjoy their favorite cookies with this rich and chocolatey flavored Barefoot x Oreo Thins Red Blend Wine,” added Kranzmann.
The resulting Barefoot x Oreo Thins Red Blend Wine will be sold starting December 9 exclusively at Barefoot Wine’s official website. For $24.99, shoppers will receive two 750-milliliter bottles of the wine along with one package of Oreo Thins cookies for their pairing pleasure.
If you’re more into mustard than cookie, Grey Poupon recently unveiled La Moutarde Vin, a viognier infused with mustard seeds. The offering from the famed French mustard makers has been created to make “lunch feel like a feast.”
