Valentine’s Day is coming up fast! As you scramble to make last minute plans for candlelight dinners and picking the right combination of roses, don’t forget the most important part: the wine! I’ve picked out 5 Valentine’s Day wines that are perfect to share with your loved ones!


Cotes Des Roses 2014 Languedoc, Gerard Bertrand

Cote des Roses Languedoc

Skip the roses and just get this Rose! This bottle’s striking design makes it an obvious choice. The base has been shaped to look just like a rose in full bloom and it’s really quite a sight! It makes a wonderful aperitif but is also rich enough to pair with seafood, veal and poultry. Very luscious!

Sourced from a single block in the northernmost part of the vineyard, this is a big, full-bodied Monterey Pinot with intense fruit that’s ready for a Valentine’s Day dinner!
