Wine and chocolate, could there be a better holiday!? Here are wines for Valentine’s Day whether you’re celebrating romance with a filet mignon or splitting a box of chocolates with your Galentine.
Wines for Valentine’s Day: Fancy & Affordable
Bubbly + chocolate (and anything else)
Sparkling wine is ALWAYS the best choice! Why? Because sparkling wine pairs with everything from a steak to chocolate, so no matter what romantic meal you have planned, you can’t go wrong with a sparkling wine.
Fancy fancy: Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut is a Champagne rated 91 points with Wine Spectator and is around $50.
Red Blends + Steak
Just like your love has many layers, so do these red blends.
Fancy fancy: Rodney Strong Symmetry is one of our go-to celebration red wines. Wine Enthusiast rates it a 90. It’s about $60 in a store, and about $90 on a restaurant wine list.
Affordable fancy: You can pick up a bottle of the smooth Z. Alexander Uncaged Red for about $16.
Charcuterie + Cab
Boho Boards in Myrtle Beach creates the coolest charcuterie boards! Perfect for your valentine ❤️
If you’re in the mood for a Cabernet Sauvignon, here’s a few to add to your list:
Fancy Fancy Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Artemis is an elegant Cab with smoky flavors mingled with blackberries. It’s about $70 if you pick up at a wine shop, and probably around $100 on a wine list at restaurant.
Affordable Fancy Decoy Cabernet Sauvignon tastes like a high-end Cab but is less than $20.
Cheers, Valentine’s! 🥂
