City Pulse

By Stef Schwalb

Halloween is almost upon us…which means plenty of thrills and chills, but hopefully not too many spills, especially if you’re celebrating with a ravishing red wine. Our suggestion for the evening’s festivities? Ravenswood Winery’s Vintner’s Blend Zinfandel. This Poe-inspired winery (you remember the author of renowned telltale tale “The Raven,” right?) has joined forces (strictly for good) with style expert Simon Doonan (creative ambassador for Barney’s) to offer a series of How To Tips for those entertaining, Edgar Allen-style, on the big eve.

It’s no trick, these spooky suggestions of Do’s and Don’ts (see below) are actually a terrific treat and range from décor and inspiration to food and fashion in a witty way that only Simon could say. And Ravenswood winemaker, Joel Peterson, has created a wine that’s robust and bursting with mouthwatering flavors of spicy ripe raspberry, cherry and boysenberry.

If a powerhouse taste for the palate is what you crave, your search is complete and shall be tempted – nevermore. For additional info on Ravenswood Wines, head to http://www.ravenswoodwinery.com.
