This coming Thursday is a day when lover’s celebrate, it’s Valentine’s Day 2019. My love is wine.. and kitty cats. We all celebrate in our own way… Don’t judge! LOL
Lots of wine will be purchased for this coming Thursday. Wondering which wine to get your loved one? Let me help. No matter if you drink white, red or sparkling, there’s something on this list for you.
- Bolla Prosecco DOC
If you would love all the flavours and sparkle of Champagne, but don’t want to subject your pocketbook with that kind of money Champagne can cost, Prosecco is your answer! This particular Prosecco is made by Banfi, in the Veneto region of Italy. It’s less than $20 per bottle and is a great way to start in the evening and is a great complement to your appetizers .
2. White #1- Pinot Gris
Some people like their white wines with a crisp and tartness. I love Pinot Gris, and this one from Kim Crawford in New Zealand is close to perfection. I had a glass of wine with my friend Joan recently and this wine is what she served, and it was just delicious . Chris flavours of melon and pear, this is a great wine if you are serving shellfish or any kind of fish this Valentine’s Day. Comes in at $23 a bottle.
3. White Wine #2- Chardonnay
Some people like their white wines with a creamy smooth this, and for that we go to Chardonnay, the number one planted white grape varietal in the world. This particular wine hills from down under, in Australia, and is less than $19 a bottle. It’s Rich, with lovely flavours of butterscotch and is a great wine for Valentine’s Day if you’re serving lobster, chowder, or chicken.
4. Red Wine #1- Pinot Noir
Oregon, in my opinion, is making some of the best Pinot Noir wine on the planet. This wine, Copper Cane Pinot Noir, Is the result of some California wine makers heading up to Oregon to make a supple Pinot Noir with vibrant flavours. Pinot Noir is at it’s best when grown in a cool climate environment and that’s exactly the conditions Oregon produces, very similar to Burgundy France. A treat at $35 a bottle
5. Red Wine #2- Cabernet Sauvignon
If you’re serving anything in the red meat department this coming Valentine’s Day, I suggest you try one of my favourite steak wines, Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon out of California. This Cabernet is so good, many wine critics feel Cabernet Sauvignon done to this quality of standard, we should be paying 40% more. So the $38 price point is actually a steal of a deal. It’s a beautifully Rich Cabernet Sauvignon with flavours of toasted oak, Winter spice and rich dark fruit.
This is me when people ask me how much wine I drink.
Happy Valentine’s Day, and until next week, Cheers
