Valentine’s Day Wine Picks & Pairings

 
 
 

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. No matter how you decide to celebrate the day of love, we have wines to impress! Here are some wines we recommend to share with your special someone. Choose from sparkling, rose, or red and share your “wine love”. All of these lovely selections are from Cariñena—and all under $15!

 

1.     Cava Origium Brut Nature, Bodegas San Valero
Set the stage for an elegant and romantic evening with an impressive Spanish sparkling wine. Produced using the traditional method, this Brut Cava is full of ripe fruit aromas with a kiss of citrus to balance. Drink this wine as an aperitif and pair with a selection of Spanish cheeses to begin a romantic dinner.

 

2.     Fábula Garnacha Rosado, Bodegas Paniza
“Cheerful, fresh, and vibrant.” These are exactly the qualities we look for in a rosè…and a forever mate. The attractive pale pink color, along with fresh wild berry and floral aromas, make an ideal pairing for lighter pasta, seafood (especially paella!), and poultry dishes.

 

3.     Beso de Vino Just Married, Grandes Vinos
This special edition, “kiss of wine” is 100% Garnacha and dedicated to newlyweds. Even if you have yet to tie the knot, this wine’s lovely blackberry, strawberry, and sensual cocoa powder notes will entice you to raise a glass. Enjoy with a juicy, meat-based dish such as barbecued shrimp and flank steak, or pair it with fruit for a luscious dessert like chocolate-covered strawberries (milk or white).
