If you enjoy celebrating Valentine’s Day, you’ll likely want everything to be perfect. Here’s a guide to choosing the best drinks for the most romantic occasion of the year.
For many, February 14th is the most romantic day of the year. You’ve organised the food, the flowers and the chocolates – so how do you pick the perfect wine for Valentine’s Day? The best wine for Valentine’s Day is, perhaps, your current favourite bottle. But if you’re looking to really impress your other half, we can help you choose something particularly special.
If you’re looking to impress on February 14th, consider a classic – nothing beats a bottle of Champagne on Valentine’s Day. In the 18th century, European royal courts were the first to use these extravagant bubbles to mark a celebration – an expensive, novelty drink that symbolised luxury and exclusivity. And Champagne has maintained this image ever since.
Beyond being the perfect choice to celebrate romance, Champagne is ideal for Valentine’s Day for another significant reason. It’s excellent when sipped on its own but it’s also incredibly versatile when it comes to food.
If you’re planning a meal this Valentine’s Day, choosing the right bottle to pair alongside a special dish might feel like a daunting task. But Champagne’s complex bubbles, richness and crisp acidity stand up to many cuisines.
If you want to make an extra romantic gesture – make it a bottle of pink bubbles. Rosé Champagne is the ultimate celebration of romance. And – keeping up with traditions – why not opt for something exclusive to make it extra special?
