When someone asks you what two things come to mind when you think of summer, what would you answer? 

Is it patios and cocktails? Road trips and music? Campfires and s’mores?

Well, whatever your answer was, for us, it’s wine and ice cream!  

Wine and ice cream are the perfect pairing for your hot summer adventures to the beach, a weekend in the countryside, or picnic in the park. When the rich velvety notes of wine coalesce with the sweet magic of ice cream, you’ll have a charming match made in picnic heaven. 

In the name of perfect pairings, here are seven wine and Baskin-Robbins ice cream combinations that will live in your mind rent-free. We’ve got the scoop right here! 

Wine and Ice Cream Matches Made In Heaven 

1. Cono Sur Sparkling Chilean Rosé + World Class Chocolate Ice Cream

Cono Sur Sparkling Chilean Rosé is a world class wine, so it’s only right that we pair it with Baskin-Robbins’ World Class Chocolate! 

The soft silkiness of this classic chocolate ice cream complements the aromatic strawberry, cherry, and cranberry notes of Cono Sur’s Rosé beautifully. If you’re looking for a well-rounded foodie experience that will take your palate on a flavourful journey, this is the one for you.

2. Prosecco + Vanilla Ice Cream

Wanna get sparkly? 

Of course you do, and that’s why you should pair vanilla ice cream with a sparkling prosecco. Prosecco put its name on the map thanks to its pale salmon pink hue and fresh bursts of peach, ripe pear, and subtle sweetness. Rumour has it that this wine is highly drinkable and extra dry, so the vanilla is bound to balance out that subtlety by being très sweet.

And contrary to popular belief, vanilla is not basic, it’s classic. 

3. Cabernet Sauvignon + Jamoca Almond Fudge Ice Cream

Many people would literally go low batt if they don’t get their daily coffee refill, but instead of sipping on that iced Americano, why not eat it in ice cream form?

Baskin-Robbins’ Jamoca Almond Fudge is an edible festival of coffee and nuts, which can happily sit at the same table with cabernet sauvignon’s powerful punch of dark blackberry spice flavours.

4. Pinot Grigio + Triple Mango Ice Cream

Sink your teeth into some mango ice cream to taste a tropical paradise. Okay, maybe you shouldn’t literally “sink” your teeth into it, because that’s a sure-fire brain freeze; but you get what we mean.

Anyway, what you want to drink while eating mango ice cream is a crisp, dry white wine like pinot grigio! 

5. Cono Sur Sparkling Chilean Rosé + Watermelon Burst Sorbet

This fruity rosé wine makes a comeback on our list of wine and ice cream matches, because why not? 

Cono Sur Sparkling Chilean Rosé happens to be a very versatile wine that pairs wonderfully with multiple flavours of ice cream, but once you taste it with Watermelon Burst Sorbet, we’re afraid that there is no turning back. 

They are both crafted with elegant hints of fruit, making them an ethereal duo for any season. Plus, don’t forget to snap some pics, because they also look aesthetically pleasing together.

6. Grüner Veltliner + Pralines ‘N Cream Ice Cream

Grüner Veltliner is the queen of lime, lemon, and grapefruit flavours. Its signature vein of acidity never fails to have a harmless fireworks show in your mouth. Sip on this white wine while the ice cream’s praline pecan and caramel magic works in tandem to give your tastebuds a rich and crunchy ride.

7. Chardonnay + Pistachio Almond Ice Cream

Pistachio is a classic ice cream flavour that will never be dethroned. Its light and nutty consistency pairs like a glove with chardonnay, which can commonly be a medium-bodied, semi-sweet, and buttery white wine. 

You’ll have a newfound appreciation for this duo when you experience how the pistachio brings out the subtle spice and oak nuances of the chardonnay.  

Want Some Scenery With That Wine? 

The true flavours of summer can be found in the wine and ice cream pairings that you choose, but you know what would really complete your wine experience? 

Scenery. 

Scenery can make all the difference no matter which wine and ice cream combo you choose. Treat yourself to a picturesque view, delicious food, flavoursome wine, and awesome music at the Rosé Picnic in Toronto.
