If you are wondering what a wine geek would want or get for Valentine’s Day, here are some thoughts.
*Champers, Champers, Champers. Instead of a regular bottle, go big and get a magnum.
*Old wine. As in a great wine from a great vintage. It is truly a special treat to drink a great wine that has been lovingly cellared and then unearthed for a special day. Any well-aged Barolo or Burgundy (red or white) would cause me to have seizures of pleasure.
*Sweet wine. As in a great dessert wine or any kind of wine with nice residual sugar. Like a great TBA riesling from Germany, a SGN Alsatian riesling, sauternes, or any Loire (Q du Charmes) would be great. They are usually half bottles (except for Loire wines) and are incredible.
*An inexpensive bottle of Prosecco (make that 2) plus an assortment of organic, boutique, seasonal fruits. Like blood oranges…mmm. Squeeze fresh juice into a glass of Prosecco. Wow!
Tonight I’ll be drinking cheap beer by gallon, so think of me if you are able to indulge in any of the above. Peace.
