Happy Valentine's Day - Chocolate, Strawberries, and Wine

Each year on February 14th, many people exchange cards, candy, gifts or flowers with their special “valentine.” The day of romance we call Valentine's Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century, but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia.


On this day we also drink wine.  So, what do you pair with all of the chocolates in those heart shaped boxes.
