5 Valentine’s Day Wines for That Special Date


It’s the season of love, my friend. It’s time to plan a romantic outing with your special someone and that of course means a bottle of wine. There are plenty to choose from and each one has a life of its own, so picking the right one for your date is of the utmost importance. Fear not, we’re here to help.

1. Date night away from the kids? Sparkling Wine
You’ve found a babysitter for Valentine’s Day, so break out the bubbly. Any champagne will fall under the category of “sparkling wine”, so it should be easy to pick out and sparkling wines are typically more affordable than their French counterpart. You still have a family to raise after all.

2. First Date? Sangiovese-Based Wine
The first date is the first impression. Make it a good one with something classy. A Sangiovese will show your date that you have class. They’ll find out later that you don’t, but by that time, they probably already love you.

3. Just a Friend? Chardonnay
You never want to be in this situation, but it will happen. As long as your just friends remind that special someone how much you care. Chardonnay is a wine that’s just as reliable as you are and it’s pretty darn cheap, for wine anyway. All in all, you and your “friend” will have a good time.

4. Anniversary? Chianti Classico
It may not be the most expensive wine, but it’s the real deal. I’m talking about a classic Italian masterpiece that demands respect and on such a night that demands equal respect, Chianti Classico is the stuff that romantic dreams are made of.

5. Want to Splurge? Brunello Di Montalcino
Your significant other is important, prestigious, and truly one of a kind. He/She deserves a wine that matches that caliber. Brunello Di Montalcino is every bit that caliber and is loved by Italy as much as your significant other is loved by you.

Here is your selection. Take your pick!
