Valentine’s day wine suggestions
If there is any holiday that deserve wine suggestions, it’s Valentine’s Day. It’s not just the sensual feelings evoked by a red wine or the excitation of chilled sparkling wine on your tongue. There’s something special about the act of sharing a bottle of wine with someone that makes it ideal for Valentine’s Day. Yes, you can share a beer or you can have your regular cocktails (which are great for before or after dinner, of course), but during a supper — or perhaps long after dinner and dessert have concluded — a bottle of wine brings together two people in a special way.
For this reason, you want a wine that is perfect for the situation. A classy dinner deserves a good bottle of wine and what looks to be a wild ride between the sheets demands a bottle something fresh and not complicated.
So that you don’t have to think about what to pick up before Valentine’s Day, I put together a few interesting wine recommendations for your romantic rendezvous on this special day.
