Valentine’s Day 2019 Gift Guide

Valentine’s Day 2019 Gift Guide

Whether you’re a new couple full of swoon and lust or you’ve been together so long you finish each other’s sentences, Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love of every kind. So, if you’re looking to add some vino to your vigor, we’ve got the gift guide to help you turn your flights of fancy into flights of wine for a delicious evening of spirited displays of devotion and delight!

Capriccio Sweet Sparkling

Nestled at the foot of the Andes and surrounded by distinctive landscape, the Bodega Dante Robino winery is part of the “Los Caminos del Vino” (The Wine Route) and welcomes tourists from across the globe.

Enjoy a taste of Argentina this Valentine’s Day and perhaps make plans to visit in the coming year! Capriccio is a sparkling wine deriving its natural sweetness from 100% torrontés grapes. A beautiful shade of gold, with floral and fruity citrus aromas. You’ll experience a fresh mouthfeel that is fragrant and ethereal.

Harvest Acres Sweet Red Moscato

While Moscato surely won’t stand up against a big steak, it really shines when paired with a dessert menu.

Made with black and orange Muscat grapes, Red Moscato is the best of both worlds as far as red versus white wine is concerned. While it still has that signature Moscato taste and smell, red Moscato features a range of fruity notes:

Delightfully sweet notes of candied strawberry and wild berry flow into tinges of creamy chocolate and tickles of skittles on the finish. Serve ice-cold and pair with a strawberry chocolate mousse cake and a shared spoon.

Freixenet Prosecco

Backed by over 150 years of family-owned wine expertise, Freixenet’s exquisite cavas, artfully produced in the methode champenoise tradition, are Spanish sparkling wines of distinction that began their story with love. The romantic union of two of Spain’s oldest winemaking families began with a wedding that also brought the wineries under one roof as a business. Prospering through all of life’s joys, and enduring its sorrows, the Freixenet winery transformed its small start into a name known around the world.

A love story in a bottle, perfect for starting your own.

House Wine Rosé Bubbles

Created in 2004 by acclaimed winemaker Charles Smith, House Wine was designed with the goal of providing maximum value and quality in an iconic minimalist package. House Wine brings great wine, at a great price, to any great occasion. Each 375ML can contains two glasses of wine and should be served in a glass in order to release the wines full flavor potential.

Crisp and elegant aromas of fresh berries lead to lively citrus flavors on the palate. Bright, fruity, and flavorful.

For their Limited Edition Rainbow Rosé Bubbles, $2 from each 24-can case sold will be donated to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the largest LGBT civil rights advocacy group in the United States.

Plaza Caviar • Hackleback

On a budget, but desire to deliver a full-flavored caviar experience? Give Plaza Hackleback a try; it has a rich, nutty flavor normally found in more expensive caviar varieties.

There are no rules on which beverage to serve with caviar. You are the best judge on which beverage tastes the best to you and your friends. The two most popular beverages served are chilled vodka, a very dry Champagne, or sparkling wine. 

Appearance: Small grain size that is jet black in color 

Flavor Profile: Light and buttery with a complex, nutty brine 

Texture: A velvety, smooth feel

Perugina Baci

A unique experience for all of your senses. The surprise of the note and its message that sparks a thrill, the unmistakable pleasure of Luisa dark chocolate coating, the discovery of the soft gianduia (hazelnut) filling, the crunchiness of the crushed hazelnuts, that culminates with one whole hazelnut. Each individually wrapped luscious hazelnut comes with a romantic love note. Remember that baci in Italian means kisses.
