Girl Scout Cookies paired with local wine? Sure, why not!

Girl Scout Cookies are everywhere right now, and after seeing an online article that paired this year's cookies with beer, we thought it would be fun to pair them with local, Lehigh Valley wine.

Here are a few suggestions from three of our wineries:

Clover Hill

  • Trefoils/Shortbreads and Clover Hill Cuvee – this semi-sweet Sparkling wine is the perfect contrast to the buttery, crisp flavors of Shortbread cookies
  • Do-si-dos/Peanut Butter Sandwiches and Concord – flavors of an adult peanut butter and jelly
  • Samoas/Carmel deLites and Cabernet Sauvignon – matching flavors of carmel and rich chocolate in the cookie and wine 
  • Cranberry Citrus Crisps and Turtle Rock Red – a little bit of sweetness and lots of tangy flavors in the wine can match up to the cranberries

Galen Glen

  • Peanut Butter Patties/Tagalongs and Do-si-dos/Peanut Butter Sandwiches paired with Winter Mountain Red


  • Lemonades with Blueberry wine and Trefoils/Shortbreads with Summertime Red
