The most romantic day of the year is finally here and nothing says Happy
Valentine’s Day like enjoying an amazing bottle of fine wine with your sweetheart!
Here is a good recommendation: planning ahead is a sign of love.
If you are planning a special breakfast or brunch, sparkling wine is the #1 wine
to pair with breakfast foods. Don’t feel compelled to spend a lot of money on true
French Champagne when pairing bubbles with your brunch. Sparkling wine is
more affordable and may pair just as beautifully.
1) Candoni Moscato di Asti – Low in alcohol with a great balance of sweetness and
acidity. Hints of apricot and ripe peaches will seduce your palate and makes the
perfect date if you are in the mood for french toast or fresh fruit.
2) Segura Viudas Rose’ – A lovely and approachable Spanish sparkling with
aromas of vibrant strawberries and dark cherries. On the palate you will enjoy
subtle flavors of ripe raspberries and grenadine. Pair with your favorite fritatta
or omelette and experience one of Spain’s premier wine producers with your
Red, represents the color of love and is guaranteed to set the mood!
If you are planning an intimate evening with your beau try a sophisticated and
robust red wine along with a home cooked meal made from the heart.
3) Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon – Dark cherry fruit with slight notes of vanilla
beans and cocoa powder open the palate, to this royal velvet colored wine with
aromas of saddle leather, smoke and black currants. Enhance the moment by
pairing with New Zealand lamb and roasted potatoes.
4) Banfi Rosa Regale – A unique and vivacious sparkling sweet red wine that
marries well with chocolate especially dark or bittersweet. You will love the
strawberry and raspberry flavors paired with chocolate cheesecake or mousse.
