Wine is for Lovers

Valentine’s Day is for lovers.  The beverage of lovers is of course Champagne and these days, not only do the French make great Bubbly, but the Italians have captured America’s attention with great Prosecco from the area around the city of Love… Venice.  My favorite is LaMarca Prosecco.  It is fun and creamy on the palate with a lovely ripe citrus and Honey and White taste.  Another great sparkling is from the Spumante Region and it is called Cantine Ceci Tres di Terra.  This wine has a crisp Apple flavor with a rich finish that completes its journey with a hint of sweetness.

If you are looking to make your man happy with a red wine, yet still  want to share for yourself then try a wonderful fruit forward Pinot Noir.  I love the Pinot from Adelsheim in Oregon. The Bryan’s Creek has amazing depth, yet is great with many foods. Enjoy!

Also, we’d love you to join us for our ‘A Rose by Any Other Name’ Wine Supper where we’ve created a wonderfully romantic six-course menu partnered with wines from the countries that inspired romance – France, Italy and Spain! Hope to see you there!
