THESE ‘HOCUS POCUS’ WINES WERE INSPIRED BY THE SANDERSON SISTERS, SO LET’S FORM A DRINKING CIRCLE We know what we're drinking this Halloween. BY CAITLYN FITZPATRICK
As we anxiously await Freeform's kick-off of the 31 Nights of Halloween (which includes a whole lot of Hocus Pocus), we can get into the spooky spirit with this new wine. All of your dreams have come true, because there is now a Hocus Pocus Wine that will practically turn you into a Sanderson sister.
Hocus Pocus x Besa x Eliqs White Wine
Besa mi Vino has partnered with the New York Restoration Project (NYRP) — a nonprofit organization that’s dedicated to making under-resourced communities greener — to create this exclusive wine that benefits the organization. The Hocus Pocus Wine makes more sense than you might realize, since Bette Midler (Winifred Sanderson) hosts an annual Hulaween fundraising gala for the NYRP.
This year’s gala is looking a little different, and will be a 1-hour virtual event that you, yes you, can attend. Sarah Jessica Parker (Sarah Sanderson) and Kathy Najimy (Mary Sanderson) are joining Midler on Oct. 30, so it’s like a reunion just before the spookiest day of the year! To attend the virtual Hulaween gala, just reserve your ticket (which is just $10!) at the NYRP shop.
Now let’s get back to the wine. There are two varieties, created by Besa mi Vino and Eliqs, that are inspired by the 1993 Disney classic. The Hocus Pocus x Besa x Eliqs White Wine comes in a six-pack that has creepy packaging of the Sanderson Sisters’ shadows hovered over the moon. The white wine is a blend of dry and sweet, and is described as having a crisp, light profile.
The Hocus Pocus x Besa x Eliqs Rosé has a different Sanderson Sister on each can, with their own vino-inspired sayings. Winnie’s says “I put a spell on you and now you’re wine,” Mary’s says “I suggest we form a drinking circle,” and Sarah’s says, “My lucky rose! Just where I left it.” You can expect a bright, lightly bubble sip with cherry, dried roses, and lychee flavors.
Each order of the Hocus Pocus Wine includes six cans, which add up to two bottles of wine. The white and rosé varieties both have 12.5% ABV per can. There’s even a variety pack that comes with six white and six rosé cans (because we’ll need a lot of it to get through how many times we watch Hocus Pocus)!
These wines are only around for a limited time, as if you needed any further convincing to stock up. It’s Hocus Pocus-themed wine, for crying out loud!
