You don’t need a wine and cheese night to be classy. Heck, charcuterie boards are getting a little overrated. Want to impress your friends, family and dog with a unique yet still classy way to enjoy wine? Look no further, because this revolutionary recipe has got me more excited than the time cotton candy grapes became a thing.

Unlike cotton candy grapes, these wine-marinated grapes are easily accessible and are based off of this recipe. Most importantly, they incorporate the adult equivalent of cotton candy: wine.
