Valentines Day can be so much more than just a cheesy card and flowers. It’s an occasion to share an experience with someone, and in our opinion, there is no better experience shared than a bottle of your favourite wine.

So here are some of our suggestions:

Joel Delaunay Methode Traditionnelle Ros
é Brut NV, Loire, France £16.99

Made in the traditional method like Champagne, second fermentation in bottle.  Pink salmon in colour with fine aromas of raspberry and gooseberry. Harmonious palate with a nice acidity and finesse, full of red fruit with some generous floral notes. The finish is long and balanced.

Cecilia Beretta Freeda Rosé 2022, Veneto, Italy £15.99
Grapes: 60% Corvina, 30% Sauvignon, 10% Carménère
Corvina meets the aromatic freshness of Sauvignon and the spicy round character of Carménère. Freeda is a perfect combination of fruity and spicy aromas with a strong minerality and freshness.

Jean-Marc Gilet Vouvray Les Perruches Sec 2022, Loire, France £17.99

20- to 40-year-old vines grown on clay-limestone soil. This specific terroir is an important factor as it gives the wine a long ageing period and finesse.

The Nero d’Avola is the most representative red wine grape varietal in Sicily. Dark- red wine, vinificated and aged exclusively in stainless steel in order to maintain unaltered the characteristics of this grape. On the nose is particularly fruity with scents of sour cherry, prunes and blackberries with more complex aroma of black pepper, black olives and ink. Soft and round on the palate. It’s perfect with traditional Mediterranean dishes, Timballi and dishes with spicy flavour.
