Valentine’s Day isn’t just about romantic love: it’s about love in all its forms. And what better way to mark the day than a delicious meal with your favourite people? From sparkling to red, rosé and even champagne, here are a few suggestions so you and your someone special can toast to love!  

Gérard Bertrand Cote des Roses

The rose-shaped base makes this bottle so romantic! Inside, a blend of grenache, cinsault and syrah exudes aromas of red berries and black and red currant. Rosy floral notes and hints of grapefruit round out the palate. This airy and fruity wine pairs well with fish and seafood and makes a great first course with oysters with sweet and sour salsa.

Louis Bouillot Perle d'Aurore Crémant de Bourgogne

A blend of pinot noir and gamay that offers a fruity and aromatic profile, crisp acidity and fine bubbles, this crémant de Bourgogne is perfect for a romantic evening. If you’re cooking for Valentine’s Day, we suggest pouring this superb rosé with mussels à la Provençale or a delicious dish of fettucine with shrimp and lemon. If you plan on popping open a bottle to start off the evening, browse through this list of cocktails to discover something new and unique! 

Pasqua Ripasso Superiore 2019

Ripasso wines are produced according to an Italian technique in which they are re-passed over skins and lees from Amarone. It’s a method that makes Pasqua Ripasso Superiore 2019 an aromatic, balanced and gourmand red with notes of woods, wild cherries and spices. These duck confit and fig bites are a wonderful complement to the wine’s substantial character and soft, round tannins.
