Pour a glass of this deep Grenache, which has hints of toasted marshmallow, while watching the beloved 1984 paranormal comedy flick Ghostbusters.

2. Watch: The Nightmare Before Christmas
Drink: Voga Italia’s Red Fusion, $11.99

The Nightmare Before Christmas - Voga Italia's Red Fusion Wine

It’s fruity but dark, and mildly outlandish, but this wine reminds Us of a particular Halloween character: Jack Skellington! Voga Italia’s Red Fusion is a blend of part Cabernet Sauvignon and part Zinfandel. The result is a wine that includes blackberry, black cherry, and black raspberry notes, with a hint of mint — so blended that it brings the Pumpkin King of Halloween together with The Nightmare Before Christmas.
