Drinking wine on Valentine ’s Day is more fitting than consuming any other beverage. It is only wine that symbolises love and unity at weddings, and is the favourite drink choice of couples, married or unmarried, on romantic occasions. Of course you can pair it with a bit of chocolate or cheese, which ever more suitable for your loved one’s tastebuds, but let the bottle of bubbly, sparkling or ruby red be the crowning of the evening.
From our suave Wine Expert, Julian Chamberlen, entertainer and educator at Chief Wine Officer VIP Networking Events, comes this drink recommendation for charming your other half on the Lovers’ Day:
‘’Valentine’s day is about passion, and the colour of love being red, I think the perfect way to engage with your valentine is with a glorious full bodied Tuscan red – Brunello di Montalcino from Sesti 2007 (£ 39.58 inc vat)- a family I really enjoy spending time with; This oozes style and excitement, notes of black cherry, rosemary, earth and tar on the nose with smooth black cherry fruit on the palate that goes on and on. A delight and a fitting treat – if you want an insight into their mighty Brunello then treat yourselves to “baby Brunello” in the form of the Rosso di Montalcino 2010 (£ 20 inc vat).’’
