It's time to sweeten up your happy hour routine with a perfect pairing of bold wines and chocolatey cookies. This Milano cookie and Nocking Point Wine Happier Hour Box features five bottles of vino that pair perfectly with your favorite decadent snacks. Here are the details on the special-edition selection.
Milano and Nocking Point Wine have teamed up for a boozy collaboration to celebrate National Wine Day on Monday, May 25. The Milano x Nocking Point Wine Happier Hour Box features five Nocking Point Wines, as well as a guide on the perfect cookies to pair them with.
The box of wines includes a Happier Hour Pairing Guide to see how you can match your favorite glass of wine from the box with a Milano cookie flavor. Though the box doesn't include the cookies themselves, you'll find a special offer for free Milano cookies so you can pick them up at your nearest grocery store at no cost. You can purchase the box on the Nocking Point website for $125.
The Happier Hour Pairing Guide recommends Double Dark Chocolate Milano cookies paired with "Year VI" Cabernet Sauvignon, a full-bodied red with bold notes of cacao; Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Milano cookies paired with "Origins" Pinot Noir, a medium-bodied red that's berry forward; Milk Chocolate Milano cookies paired with "Basic Witch Potion No.2" Rosé, a rosé that is smooth and light-bodied; Raspberry Milano cookies paired with "KDH" Sauvignon Blanc, a chilled, crisp white wine; and Orange Milano cookies paired with "Loud and Clear" White Blend, which has notes of citrus fruits and spices to enhance the cookie's flavor.
If you don't have the $125 to drop on the wine box, you can also pair according to the guide below, which gives you wine type suggestions for each cookie.
