Move Over Halloween—It’s Harvest Brunch Season

Don’t freak out, but it’s Halloween party season. If you’re a fan of costume parties and fake blood, then you’re in luck. However, if haunted houses and skeletons aren’t really your thing, invite your friends to a Harvest Brunch instead. This trendy autumn event focuses less on cheesy Halloween decorations—so leave those cobwebs up in the attic—and instead celebrates rich fall colors and the delicious fruits and vegetables of the autumn harvest—all with a bottle of Korbel of course.

Now it’s time to think about your brunch menu; this is a harvest party after all! Stop by your local farmer’s market and buy some fresh vegetables. Then get cooking. You can even play up this season’s offerings by crafting an autumn cocktail. Need some menu ideas? Check out our fall recipes below.
