Eleventh Hour Valentine's Day Wines

Retailers report, and empirical evidence demonstrates, that Valentine's Day can be one of the busiest holidays for the wine and spirits business. Wine menu planning is a fun exercise but sometimes the rigors of workaday reality get in the way of our good time. And when it comes to wine, price doesn’t need to indicate how much you care. Wine is one of very few consumer categories where high dollar amounts don’t always equal a better product. In this spirit, the web's top wine writers are here to make Valentine's Day a bit easier and keep you on budget. All of the recommended wines are under twenty-five dollars.

There have been two Wine and Food Festivals in the past couple of weeks...one in the Cabo area and the other in Todos Santos...spotlighting the wines of Baja, with wonderful food pairing dinners the night before. Besides all the artists who live here, we are also known for our chefs here in Todos Santos. I think your readers would find the history of Baja's winemaking area and what the vineyards are producing, very interesting. Wendy Rains, wendy@buildinginbaja.com

  • 1495308Skihawk john@radicallyinclined.com I have recently introduced a very beautiful and unique wine storage and display rack. Each RAX is hand-made in a small shop in Poulsbo, WA USA. They are hand crafted from sustainable Western Red Cedar purchased from a local family owned mill. Every Wine RAX is hand rubbed with a Brazilian rosewood oil, fire-heat branded, signed and numbered by the craftsman. RAX is a very green company. Wine RAX make the perfect wedding gift, gift for your favorite wine lover or something unique and special for yourself. The Table Top models are a novel, elegant way to display wine. The Wall models are a beautiful and efficient way to store your wine. Check them out at http://www.radicallyinclined.com/wi... If you have any questions, I’d be glad to answer them for you.
