You can’t go wrong with bubbles

VillaVilla-Jolanda-Prosecco-Limited-Edition-blog Jolanda Prosecco, “I Love You” Limited Edition

This is a classic prosecco from the heart of Italy: it’s lush, floral, fruity, bright and bubbly. Drink it with lobster if you’re feeling fancy. Or sip on it while eating chocolate truffles, preferably by the fireplace with some Kenny G playing. And just in case you forget the most important words to say on valentine’s, the bottle has “I love you” written in multiple languages on its cute label.

 

For drinking with a nice steak

Menage-A-Trois-Decadence-Cabernet-Sauvignon-BlogMenage A Trois Decadence Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine is like a passionate romance: it’s sultry, it’s intense, and in the words of its makers, it’s so seductive “it would make even Casanova blush.” With dark fruit flavors and heady aromas of vanilla and oak, it goes best with food that’s equally decadent. Like a Fairway USDA prime shell or rib-eye steak. Light some candles, set the scene with flowers, put this bottle on the table and let the magic happen.

 

If you plan on recreating the spaghetti scene from Lady and the Tramp

Montepulciano is a full-bodied red with a velvety mouthfeel. Produced in the Abruzzo region of Italy, it pairs effortlessly with tomato-based pasta dishes. So if your valentine’s evening calls for getting close over spaghetti and meatballs, this wine will complete the trattoria ambiance.

 

 

When subtle and classy is more your style

Love-Noir-Pinot-Noir-BlogLove Noir Pinot Noir

If you think big bouquets of red roses and heart-shaped everything is over-the-top, this pinot understands. It’s a sleek and smooth little number with understated elegance. There are dark fruit and espresso flavors rounded out by hints of vanilla and oak. Pair it with pork, poultry, or a classy little cheese board.

 

 

For toasting with your galentines

Chocovine-Chocolate-Wine-BlogChocovine Chocolate Wine

Who needs romance when your real soulmates are your gal pals? A galentine’s party is the perfect excuse to stay in with your besties, watch a movie and gab over drinks. Chocolate wine is perfect for celebrating your bond because it fittingly brings together two things that make a perfect pair—quality Dutch chocolate and French cabernet.

 

If you really like to get into the Valentine’s spirit

Baileys-Strawberries-&-Cream-BlogBaileys Strawberries & Cream

If you’ve been known to stash heart candies in your drawer and bake pink cupcakes for the entire office on 2/14, you deserve a drink that is as spirited as you are. Bailey’s Strawberries & Cream has a blushing pink color to match all of your lovely swag. Use it as the base for a decadent dessert cocktail, mix it into baked goods or just serve it on the rocks—it’s a nice way to sweeten up any romantic occasion.

 

For a romantic night cap to the evening

Tequila-Rose-Cream-BlogTequila Rose Cream

If you’ve already wow-ed your significant other with a delicious dinner and a dazzling dessert, why not cap things off with a dynamite drink? Tequila rose cream brings together a spike of tequila with strawberries and cream. Try adding a shot to hot chocolate with whipped cream and chocolate syrup on top. It’s an utterly delightful recipe for winning hearts.
