Happy Love Month! We've been imagining the perfect, cozy Valentine's Day date that doesn't require a reservation. Here are five ideas we love, plus the wine you'll want to drink with each one. Hugs and kisses!
Well nothing says spa
and me time
better than a luxurious bottle of bubbles! But, we are also allllll about getting the most bang for our buck. Ready? THIS
. Elegance meets a field of wild strawberries—wowza! With just a hint of fresh thyme and a back note of citrus, this pink sparkler is the perfect companion for a soak in the tub.
HOMEMADE PASTA DINNER
We're suckers for a rich gorgonzola pasta (or a simple plate of noodles drizzled in EVOO) and a creamy white. Try this show stoppin' Sicilian
that exudes notes of melon and starfruit. A real stunner!
Going red? Our somm, Leslee, loves Sangiovese. And classically, this gorgeous Sangiovese from Tuscany
is absolutely the key to unlocking the perfect pairing to a tomato-based, slightly herbed pasta.
Checkers, Scrabble, cards—or better yet, Twister!—deserve a wine that is gulpable, yet smart and textured. Are you with us? Leslee can't get enough of this gorgeous Tempranillo—perfect for the nerdy game lover, or those also just wanting a good sip that'll quench your thirst at game time!
POPCORN + A MOVIE
Chardonnay all the way for this salty, buttery treat! This one
boasts loads of tropical notes while maintaining a rich and creamy mouthfeel. Mmm! And like we always say, you can't go wrong with bubbles paired to popcorn.
