Love is in the air…….say it with WINE!

15 or so more day’s til Valentine’s Day 2012. What to get your loved one? Chocolate, dinner, flowers, lingerie, oh the list goes on and on.  Many of us have traditions with our loved one’s, like a very special dinner? A picnic? etc…

I prefer wine, OK I know no surprise here.  But why do I prefer wine?  Wine is to be shared with great company.  Have you ever shared a special bottle with that perfect person?  Sharing is caring and wine just oozes sexy, sultry, passion, and LOVE!

Wine & Chocolate, why not just remember, the lighter the chocolate, the lighter the wine and the darker and more bitter chocolate fuller bodied wines usually pair better.  Strawberries dipped in dark chocolate? Oh yes please why not pair it with an elegant Brachetto D’Acqui or a beautiful Rose Champagne.

Or maybe you are having dinner at home or going out.  Here are some suggestions:

Why not a Gewurztraminer paired with an Asian dish.

A Super Tuscan, Barolo, or Brunello di Montalcino paired with a pasta dish with meat or chicken.

Pinot Noir paired with a gorgeous piece of Salmon or Grouper.

How about Duck? Oh yes please a nice Burgundy pairs beautifully, play’s off the gaminess.

Chicken pot pie,  quiche or a shrimp scampi try it with a Chardonnay.

Pork or Mushroom risotto, try a Riesling.

The most versatile wine is Champagne.  You can start with Champagne and finish with it. Starters like oysters, raw shrimp, cheese, and sushi. Dinner have it with Lobster, shrimp, scallops, chicken.  Then finish with a dessert like fruit puddings, tarts, or cake.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
