Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and now that you’ve got your gift sorted out, it’s time to pick that perfectly romantic wine.
What, you haven’t gotten a gift yet? Check out our Valentine’s gift ideas, perfect for any wine lover.
Champagne, or any sparkling wine, is always a safe bet for Valentine’s Day. It is easy to drink on its own and pairs well with a range of foods. You can drop a small fortune on a bottle, but if you’re willing to go outside of Champagne, there are stellar sparkling options at any price point.
Riesling is one of the most overlooked wines when it comes to celebrations, but it’s easily one of the most food friendly and versatile. It’s available at a range of sweetness levels, from bone dry to super sweet, and can pair with all aspects of your meal.
If you’re looking for something a little more in your face for Valentine’s Day, Barolo is the way to go. High acidity, high tannin, and full-bodied, this wine means serious business. Just make sure to open the bottle early in the evening so it has plenty of time to breathe. This will help soften the tannin and really let the flavors shine.
Whichever wine you choose for Valentine’s Day, just remember that the important thing is that you and you Valentine enjoy it. After all, wine is all about love.
