Girl Scout Cookies and Wine Pairings From Auberge du Soleil

Girl Scout Cookies and Wine Pairings From Auberge du Soleil

Girl Scout cookies and wine are the new cheese and wine, according to HotelChatter and Auberge du Soleil

HotelChatter reported today that the genius that is Kris Margerum, the wine director at Auberge du Soleil hotel in Napa Valley, Calif., has elevated the country’s Girl Scout cookie addiction to elegant heights. He has suggested wine pairings for some of the most popular types of cookies — Trefoils-Old Fashioned Shortbread, Savannah Smiles, Do-Si-Dos Peanut Butter Cremes, Samoas, and Tagalongs. (We are dying to know what he would pair with Thin Mints, though.)

Margerum recommends pairing Trefoils with a 2007 Schramsberg Blanc de Noirs Sparkling Wine, Savannah Smiles with a 2010 Dr. Loosen Riesling-Kabinett, Samoas with a Graham’s 20-Year Tawny Port, and Tagalongs with Rare Wine Company’s "Imperial Old Reserve" Malmsey Madeira.

So those 24 boxes you bought can now be displayed with pride (rather than shame) when you tell friends and family that you’ll be pairing them with wines — though drinking wine and eating Girl Scout cookies at home alone seems like elevated The Bachelor snacking.

According to the hotel’s site, Margerum is also feeling the Neyers 2006 "Thieriot" Chardonnay from Sonoma and the Robert Craig 2006 Zinfandel from Napa Valley right now, if you feel like branching out into other cookie-and-wine-pairings. And if you figure out the best wines for Thin Mints, let us know.

You can’t have cookies without milk, right? Cookies LOVE milk. And yet, for almost 100 YEARS, the Girl Scouts have been selling their delicious cookies, and milk has been nowhere in sight.

In honor of the upcoming National Girl Scouts Weekend (February 26-28), got milk? helped the Boy Scouts surprise the Girl Scouts with the missing milk! The scouts were excited to work as a team and make sure that folks who stopped by would finally have the opportunity to enjoy milk and cookies together. The scouts earned official “got milk?” patches, raised cash for their troop and enjoyed milk and cookies together. And all was right with the world.
