Wine Cellar Inspirations: Wines For The Month Of Love

February 17th, 2021

Valentine’s Day may be over, but the Month of Love is certainly not! Spreading love and kindness especially during these trying times shouldn’t be limited to one day. For us wine enthusiasts, sharing our February finds is a great way to keep the positive vibes going. Here are some of our wine picks:

Wines for the Month of Love!

Côtes de Provence Rosé

The first on our list is definitely Rosé. Rosé has “Valentine’s Day” written all over it. You can’t go wrong with a bottle of Rosé and it would be even better when you have the perfect dishes to pair it with. Our choice for this Month of Love is this charming Côtes de Provence Rosé, courtesy of H&B. Try it with chicken or fish mains and strawberries or strawberry laden desserts This pale pink French rosé has delicate rose, cherry, peach and strawberry flavors that are subtle yet memorable.

Clif Family Gewürztraminer

The label might be a mouthful to pronounce, but the taste is wonderfully easy to work with. The Gewürztraminer is traditionally a German varietal. But this version by Clif Family that we are head over heels for hails from Anderson Valley in California. If you’re planning to do an intimate dinner sometime this month with whites instead if reds, this is the ticket. The wine boasts of light lemon, honey and clove notes and a floral nose. You’ll find that this dry white pairs exceptionally well with hard cheeses, white pizza, or pasta. A charcuterie board is a must with this one!

Layer Cake Malbec

Save the best for last, as the saying goes. Our third and last pick for this month of hearts is the Layer Cake Malbec. This wine will have you and your date swooning over the rich, tastebud-tingling flavors. You’ll find that this medium-bodied Malbec has notes of chocolate, blackberries and cherry is absolutely lip-smacking. For maximum taste results, we recommend serving it with some delectable chocolate mousse and a fruit and cheese platter.  It also pairs very well with barbecued dishes! Give this Argentinian delight a try and we guarantee it will leave you wanting for more.
