valentine wine

Cut the crap about if you’re single or head over heels – let’s get drinking. Here are wines for every possible stage of a relationship. Crack one open on Valentine’s Day and you’ll probably fall in love with one of them.

beginning stages

spin the bottle wine

These two reds are of the sweeter variety, if that’s your thing. The cool part, though, is that the labels are made with a technology that lets the image move as you view it from different angles (ie, as you spin the bottle!). $15 each

mad crush red wine

This is a great blend from Paso Robles – but they swap out Tempranillo for the usual Syrah, making the mix 65% Grenache, 21% Tempranillo and 14% Mourvedre. $45

Lust Zinfandel

A little blackberry – sweet and very juicy, just like a good hook up. $59

you’re in love!

amoureux lasseter wine

So-called because the winery family fell in love with Malbec while honeymooning in Sonoma, this mostly-Malbec blend is packed with gritty blackberry, blueberry and cinnamon. $54

loveblock pinot gris wine

Yummy green pear with a touch of mineral and a fantastic mildly lush mouthfeel. $24

enamore amarone wine

This is made in the Amarone style, but with blend of Malbec, Syrah, Bonarda, and Cabernet Franc. You get blackberry pie filling, very juicy and fruity but not sweet. $26

hugel amours pinot blanc wine

Have a breezy affair with these light lemon and yellow apple flavors. $16

lamuri wine

Lamùri means “love” in the Sicilian dialect, and the hand-harvested Nero d’Avola grapes make for an earthy, smooth black cherry-filled wine. $20

going south

Despite its name, this is really refreshing yellow apple and guava with some white floral notes. $18

Stag's Leap Cabernet. Blackberry, mineral, awesome silky tannins. 100 bucks. And you deserve it.

  1. My boyfriend and I went to a Valentine’s Day wine and food pairing at a nice local restaurant, and the event organizer selected the wines based on whether or not they had hearts on the label. I like your method better.
