We doubt you need to be told, but it’s the most magical time of year. The Girl Scout cookie sign-up sheet has probably already appeared in your office break room, and while you're mulling over how many boxes to buy (we recommend overdoing it), Vivino has already figured out which wine you should pop open as soon as those sweet treats arrive.

For this epic flavor fest, the wine app (who you might remember from their Halloween candy pairings) enlisted the help of Jessica Norris, wine director at New York City's Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse and one of Wine Enthusiast's Top 40 under 40 Tastemakers. Norris found the perfect pairing for each of the 12 Girl Scout cookies available this year from Thin Mints—the perfect companion for a good Brunello—to Caramel deLites and Samoas, which are well-complemented by an aged Rioja. Apologies in advance for the havoc this will surely wreak on those month-old resolutions.
