Say it with wine!

Looking for a bottle of something for that special someone this Valentine’s Day? Here are five of our favourites, perfect for a romantic evening:

1. Château de Belleverne Saint-Amour

There’s no avoiding the appropriate name and the wine certainly lives up to it. Delicate with wild strawberry fruit and a touch of liquorice spice.

2. Ferghettina Franciacorta Brut

Less well-known than Champagne, Franciacortca comes from the Lombardy region of Italy and is Italy’s delicious answer to the ubiquitous French fizz. Well worth a try and what romantic evening would be complete without a glass of something sparkling?!

3. Prá Morandina Volpolicella

Like a hug in front of the fire! Think cherries, almonds and a touch spice.

4. Cape Coral Mourvèdre

Take a classic French grape, give it a South African twist and you have Cape Coral Mourvèdre. Dry and clean, slightly creamy with a delicate minerality.  Stunning with delicately spicy food; who says rosé is only for summer!

5. Château de Santenay Saint-Aubin

Good white Burgundy never fails to impress and this is a beauty. Soft stone fruit and a slight vanilla-oak note. A touch of minerality on the finish. If you’re looking to wow, then this might be your wine!
