Whether you celebrate the origins of Valentine’s Day, which stretch back to the year 496, or you simply see it as an excuse for greetings card companies to improve their profit margins, there’s no denying that it can be a wonderful opportunity to relax with your loved one and enjoy some mutual pampering.
To get you in the mood for whatever your evening may hold, we’ve rounded up some gorgeous wines from around the world that are a treat for all the senses. What’s more, they’re all currently on special offer, but you don’t have to tell your valentine that.
Château de Fleurie
A sumptuous red wine produced by the prestigious 18th century château, this fruit-led red is juicy and rich, making it the perfect accompaniment to some indulgent nibbles (we’re talking about food). Usually £15.50 a bottle, it’s currently yours for just £12.
Vendange White Zinfandel Rosé
Everyone knows that the Americans like to do things in a big way, yet at just £8.85 this rosé will only make a small impact on your bank balance. Delicate in colour, sweet on the nostrils and zingy on the palate, it’s not only a truly enjoyable experience, it’s also the ideal colour for a Valentine’s Day celebration.
Camel Valley Bacchus Dry
Fancy an English beauty? Camel Valley in Cornwall is the producer of this fruity number, which presents grapefruit, lemon and greengage with quintessential British boldness. Very dry and delicate, this light white is on offer at £13.55, saving you over £5 a bottle.
Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Brut, Vintage Champagne 2004
If you really want to knock your partner’s socks off before you’ve even left the lounge, this exceptional vintage champagne is guaranteed to please. Housed inside the famous art nouveau bottle designed by Emile Gallé and bubbling with classic elegance, this is definitely one for a special occasion.
We believe we’ve been particularly generous with this offer, reducing the price tag from £235 to £145, which is why we only have a few left in stock. Go on, treat yourselves to notes of yellow and white fruit, flavours of brioche and an utterly sublime sparkle that dances on the tongue.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
