If we were honest with ourselves, our wine choice would be easy, as it always is. Simply serve the wine you like the best! That’s the ticket to a successful meal after all, isn’t it? Pair it with what you like. Well, if it’s not and you need some suggestions for a wine that screams “I love you,” check out these options that can complete the Valentine’s Day picture in a big way.
What could be better than a wine named Valentine for Valentine’s? Well, we’ll get to that in a second, but these wines from Valentine Vineyards, a small winery in Southern Mendocino County, would certainly add some thoughtful pizzazz to a V-Day celebration.
Speaking of pizzazz, what could be better than adding some Saint Love to your soiree? Barry White, anybody? 2009 was a spectacular vintage for Beaujolais, so these wines from Saint-Amour should be easy to find, well priced, and very food-friendly. Really, an ideal wine for the occasion.
Iron Horse Wedding Cuvee
OK, now this is serious business. Wedding Cuvee! Are you going there this Valentine’s Day? Well, if you are, you’ll need a bottle of bubbly and the Iron Horse Wedding Cuvee sounds like it’s awfully fitting!
The lovers. If that’s what you are, this Burgundy Premier Cru is not only an exceptional choice for Valentine’s Day, it’s also an exceptional wine, and priced accordingly. Les Amoureuses is just to the east of the benchmark Grand Cru Musigny, so it’s no surprise that these are the most expensive wines on the list. But your significant other is worth it. Right?
Looking for something a bit more playful, and perfect for washing down some oysters? Try this wine: Mi Amore. It’s called Mi Love in the most romantic language (Italian, of course). An easy drinking white from the heart of Italy.
