Amore e Vino a San Valentino 


February 14 is known to all to be the most romantic and honeyed day of the year: Valentine's Day, the feast of lovers. There are many couples who want to celebrate this special day in the best possible way. Husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, lovers and partners, each of them will try in all possible ways to impress their loved one by planning romantic surprises, gifts and of course, organizing the perfect evening. And in a self-respecting menu for an unforgettable romantic Valentine's Day dinner, wine certainly cannot be missing. For years, philosophers and poets have praised and praised the aphrodisiac properties of this drink and its great seductive potential. But which one to choose ?!
White or red? Or maybe a rosé? Or why not, a sparkling wine?

To start a first screening that will direct us to the final choice, it is good to think first of all what the person you are celebrating with likes, the type of evening you are going to spend, and obviously the menu. Valentine's Day could turn into the occasion for an important request or even an official engagement, and therefore it is our intention to support you in the best choice and offer you some excellent tips to make your evening memorable!

If the choice is to spend an endless idyllic aperitif, a good sparkling wine will certainly be for you. In fact, bubbles accompany finger food and appetizers very well, therefore a Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Extra Brut Cru Torri di Credazzo Follador winery or a Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiorre Brut Millesimato Cuvèe of the Founder of the Merotto winery they will fit perfectly for this occasion.

Amore e Vino a San Valentino


If, on the other hand, you opt for an evening at the restaurant, with a fish-based dinner usually the white always wins; while first courses with savory sauces and meat-based dishes often opt for pairing with red wines. However, in this case, we recommend that you reveal your tastes and preferences to sommeliers and waiters, and rely on their proposals. 

If, on the other hand, you are going to spend a romantic dinner at home, we can certainly help you! If the menu includes courses with delicate flavors such as risottos, soups, dishes based on white meats or vegetables, it is good to focus on an equally delicate wine that does not cover the flavors. In our opinion, the best choice will be a Isonzo Merlot from the Vigna del Lauro winery.
If, on the other hand, the menu consists of savory dishes, red meats, roasts, cured meats or aged cheeses, the elegance that distinguishes, starting from the velvet case that covers it, the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Towards Sera from the Velenosi winery has no equal.

Cena Romantica San Valentino


Usually with a good dessert, a glass of raisin wine or a digestive, the evening ends. But what if after dinner you want to dare with an aphrodisiac glass? A Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Catullo Bertani Winery, can only be the perfect choice to guide you and accompany you in a unique and unforgettable evening.

We remind you not to overdo it and always drink the right quantities, this to have fun and fully enjoy the evening and not risk ruining it. 

And now, hoping to have done something pleasant, we just have to wish you a nice evening and a Happy Valentine's Day!
