Girl Scout cookies are more than just a delicious treat—they’re a movement that helps young entrepreneurs gain the skills and confidence they need to change the world.
Of the many things these cookies have done, they’ve helped one Girl Scout start a social justice club. They’ve helped another build sensory tools for children with Autism. One of our Co-Founder’s daughters (whose virtual sales pitch video went viral) donated over 1,000 boxes of cookies to nursing homes to help elders in isolation during the pandemic.
Buying these cookies can help empower girls to learn, lead, and take the world by storm. In honor of cookie season, we’ve put together our annual suggestions for our favorite Girl Scout cookie and ONEHOPE wine pairings! Grab your best gals and guys and get ready to taste the adventure.
Vintner Red Wine Blend with Do-Si-Dos & S’mores
Is there any better flavor combination than PB&J? These crunchy oatmeal sandwich cookies with peanut butter filling are perfect alongside our best-selling and 96-point Vintner Red Blend. Big and bold with complex berries, this combo solidifies that everyone’s favorite childhood flavors can still be enjoyed when you’re an adult
These crunchy graham sandwich cookies with chocolate and marshmallow filling are reminiscent of summertime evenings. Our Vintner Red Blend is complex with berries and cocoa aromas while also full of depth and richness like a dark chocolate cake, making it one of our favorites to pair around the vineyard fire pit in the summer season with our s’mores. With this pairing, you can have a little slice of this Napa heaven, too—at home!
Vintner Pinot Grigio and Trefoils
These delicious treats are traditional shortbread cookies baked in the shape of the iconic Girl Scout trefoil. Lively with a touch of minerality, fresh stone fruit, and a clean finish make our Vintner Pinot Grigio a crisp and refreshing pairing for this buttery shortbread.
Paso Robles Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon & Amador County Zinfandel and Tagalongs
As our taste-testing team alluded to, “All we really want to do is scream that this is the absolute best cookie and wine pairing combo ever!” But, to keep things a tad more descriptive, we’ll say that these crispy cookies layered with peanut butter and covered with a chocolaty coating are the ideal accompaniment to the rich ripe flavors and aromas of vanilla and chocolate found in our Paso Robles Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.
Going back to that classic PB&J combination, our Amador Reserve (Wine Club Exclusive) Zinfandel has become a cult favorite almost overnight and with good reason. If you’re looking for another pairing for those Tagalongs, grab a bottle of our zinfandel, which bursts with sensational flavors of black raspberry, tart cherry, vanilla, and spice. These jammy fruit flavors juxtaposed against the peanut butter give us all of the nostalgia while the crispy cookie and chocolate of the Tagalongs play deliciously with the vanilla and spice notes in the wine—brought to you by that extra-long oak barrel aging.
Italian Prosecco and Samoas
Crisp cookies with caramel, coconut, and chocolaty stripes—that is the beauty of the famous Samoa Girl Scout cookie. The dry finish of our Italian Prosecco with its plentiful bubbles makes it the perfect complement to that iconic caramel, coconut, and chocolate combination of Samoas. Enjoy all of the textures of this pairing as you experience it, as it’s pleasing on the palate and entirely memorable as part of our annual cookie and wine lineup.
Sonoma Coast Chardonnay and Lemon-Ups
These crispy lemon cookies baked with inspiring messages are a match made in heaven alongside our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay. Bold and juicy flavors of green apple and bright lemon meet hints of lime and crushed slate in this rich and elegant Chardonnay. Putting the like flavors together is an excellent pairing method and we’re entirely in love with this lovely lemony duo.
Vintner Cabernet Sauvignon and Adventurefuls
Indulgent brownie-inspired cookies topped with caramel flavored crème with a hint of sea salt is how one may describe the decadent Adventurefuls. With a big mouth full of dark berries and toffee, our Vintner Cabernet Sauvignon will bring out the Adventureful’s chocolate-meets-caramel notes and leave you swooning for the remainder of your treat-filled experience.
California Dessert Wine and Thin Mints
Thin mints are the notorious chocolate cookies dipped in a delicious mint chocolate coating. These refreshing fan-favorites act as a pallet reset with every bite, making each sip feel like a new adventure. The alluring flavors of the Thin Mint pull out the smooth and velvety toffee and caramel notes of our California Dessert Wine. If you’re looking for additional dessert ideas, try pairing this wine with a slice of rich cheesecake or a selection of dark chocolate truffles,
Vintner Pinot Noir + Toffee-Tastic
These rich, buttery cookies are filled with sweet, crunchy toffee bits, plus they’re gluten-free! Our Vintner Pinot Noir is intense and integrated with black and red berries and a touch of cinnamon, which pairs deliciously with the buttery notes of these toffee bites.
