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.
Wine is a special part of this day. So, what do you pair with all of the chocolates in those heart shaped boxes?
Dark Chocolates pair extremely well with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Grenache, Malbec, Banyuls, Brachetto or a nice Sherry.
Milk Chocolate pairs well with Pinot Noir, Merlot, Sherry, Sauternes, and Madeira.
White Chocolate pairs well with Gewurztraminer, Sherry, and Moscato d' Asti.
One special touch to add to your special day - take 2 champagne flutes place strawberries in the bottom and fill the flute with your favorite Champagne or Sparkling Wine and you will have a beautifully, decorated wine treat.
Another tip take white grapes freeze them and use them to chill your white wine.
Happy Valentine's Day and Cheers!
