On special occasions, like Valentine’s Day, choosing the right wine is essential to make a good impression on your date. Lincoln Road Package Store has budget-friendly and high-end options to fit any budget. But you may be wondering which wine to choose for your special occasion. So today on the blog, we’re sharing some top-ranked wines that are perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Mionetto Prestige Prosecco Organic

An organic bottle of Mionetto’s classic brut, an all-time favorite among Prosecco drinkers, would be a thoughtful Valentine’s Day present for the wine enthusiast who cares about the environment. It’s an exceptionally adaptable sparkling wine due to its light body and subtle citrus, floral, and golden apple flavors.

Mumm Napa Brut Prestige

It doesn’t matter whether you’re snacking on chocolate-covered strawberries or slurping fresh oysters and caviar; this fine sparkling wine from Napa is an excellent option since it goes well with sweet and salty foods. It has aromas and flavors of citrus, apple, and toasted baking spice.

Aslina Sauvignon Blanc

A refined Sauvignon Blanc with lively fruit, zippy citrus, reviving minerality, and impressive complexity and depth, Aslina pairs excellently with soft cheese, chicken, fish, or pork.

Tenuta Luce Lucente

Tenuta is “Italian amore in a glass.” It’s a mix of the traditional Tuscan grape Sangiovese and Merlot and has flavors of red berry, savory spice, and red licorice.

Antica Terra Coriolis Pinot Noir 2016

This Willamette Valley pinot noir is better than a bouquet of roses because it has the ideal combination of fruit and earth with a fresh, flowery undertone.

Frank Family Vineyards Brut Rose 2015

The Brut Rose is a bottle of sophisticated champagne that spent three years aging in the bottle after being made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grown in Carneros. It has a vibrant coral-pink hue and tastes like tart strawberries, citrus peel, and cherries. All the bubbles are tightly packed and delicately nuanced, and there’s a lively acidity and minerality towards the conclusion, all framed by a creamy texture.

Rare Wine Co. New York Malmsey Madeira

Chances are, if you’re going out for a fancy dinner on Valentine’s Day, you’ll want to end it with a sweet treat, and a glass (or bottle) of Madeira is a fantastic, underappreciated alternative to match that sweet ending.

Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Chardonnay

honor a love tale more worthy of immortality than the chardonnay that made Napa Valley famous. Its creaminess, infused with ripe core fruit tastes and a hint of floral, would perfectly complement Valentine’s Day sweets.

Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Black cherry, nutmeg, clove, and spices fill this wine’s aroma. Black cherry aromas and tannins follow smooth black currant and plum flavors. Smooth texture, complex flavor, and deep fruit aromas make it a great dinner wine. Elegant, acidic, and spicy aromas complement herb-crusted lamb, chicken, or pig loin dishes. The wine’s earthiness also complements mushroom risotto, ratatouille, and roasted root vegetables.

Gusbourne Blanc de Blancs

A light golden hue with brioche, ripe pear, and preserved lemon scents combine with candied citrus, stone fruits, and toasted hazelnut flavors to create an elegant and refined palate. A multifaceted wine with enticing mineral undertones and a lingering, smooth aftertaste. Gusbourne goes well with most shellfish but especially with newly opened oysters.

Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose

A shockingly simple campaign with a palate full of supple red cherries, toasted flavors of flaky pastry, and a superb balance between acid and minerality make this selection a Valentine’s Day favorite. Primarily because of its pink color.

Donnhoff Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel 2019

Riesling has a history of being too sweet, but this classic German bottle shows that this is not always the case. Light and fruity with a touch of sweetness, this wine is ideal for kicking off a meal or enjoying some charcuterie.
