Okay lovers here are my top three picks for wines at Valentines (without breaking the bank). The candles are lit -the table is set- dinner is in the oven

(or you have Uber Eats on speed-dial) Here we go…

Prosecco Rose

Before dinner start with some bubbly…some pink bubbly. I recommend Bottega Prosecco Rose Brut -Strawberry, Raspberry nose with a crisp citrus finish.

Just enough to get you just a little bit silly.

Viognier

Shrimp Cocktail, Oysters or Smoked Salmon as an appetizer?

Pair it up with a luscious New World Viognier -an exotic grape variety traditionally planted in the Rhone Valley. Tropical, rich with a lovely orange apricot zing

Beaujolais St Amour

Veal chop, Roast chicken or Steak? Match it with a Cru Beaujolais from St Amour-red berries, plums, cherries and a distinctive Burgundian earthiness.

(And bonus points for the irony.)

Finish him or her or it off with the rest of the bubbly! Good luck with that…
