It's no secret that Girl Scout cookies aren't just for kids. One could argue that adults actually enjoy these treats more than children -- one's never too old for a sugar rush. To make Girl Scout cookies truly an adult treat, Kris Margerum, Wine Director at Napa Valley's inn and Michelin-starred restaurant Auberge du Soleil, has provided wine pairings for each cookie.

"Even the simplest sweets can be paired with a fine wine," said Margerum. "I love pairing confections with exquisite vintages. They shape the flavor and take the simple experience of enjoying a cookie to an entirely new level of enjoyment."
