If your special someone is an oenophile, get them a Valentine’s Day gift that fits this interest. Contact your local winery to see how they can help you come up with the perfect present. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
3 Surprises for Your Wine-Loving Valentine
1. Book a Tasting
A tasting is a romantic way to spend the day. Openings for tastings tend to book up quickly on Valentine’s Day, so you’ll need to plan and reserve your date in advance. Make a day of it by buying a bottle of your favorite pour, going home, and sipping on it while you cook a romantic candlelit dinner together.
2. Get a Wine Club Membership
Membership to a wine club gives your Valentine the opportunity to expand their palate. The winery will ship bottles to your partner’s house year-round, exposing them to seasonal selections, customer favorites, and the latest blends. Depending on the membership tier, your Valentine may also enjoy discounted purchases and complimentary tastings at the winery.
3. Create a Personalized Wine
Surprise your partner with a bottle you made for them. First, you’ll sample a few wines to determine the flavor profile. After creating your special blend, it’ll ferment, and you’ll return after a few weeks to bottle it. When creating your label, add a sweet Valentine’s message on it and express how much they mean to you. Lastly, you’ll cork the bottle and choose a foil in their favorite color. You can also plan a date to create a bottle together.
