Romantic Valentine's Day Pairings

     You’ve waited too long, and all of the Valentine’s Day dinner reservations have been secured in your town.

     What to do?

     While your first inclination may be to take a long walk on a short pier, do not despair. We are here to help get you off the hook.

     The answer: Prepare a romantic meal at home, and serve some romantic wines with it.

     And the best part of all is that you don’t need to wait until the dessert course to uncork a bottle of sweet dessert wine. On this day, the food-and-wine pairings are not so much about culinary correctness as they are about romance.

     Here are some pairing possibilities for you to consider…

     * Blue cheese with a sweet white wine.

     * Lobster with a sweet white wine. (Really – it works.)

     * Dark chocolate with Port.

     * Assorted salted nuts with Cream Sherry.

     * Strawberry shortcake with Moscato d’Asti.

     * Oysters with a white or rose sparkling wine.

     Just the fact that you’re taking time to prepare a meal for your S.O. should be worth a lot of points.

     Serve the right wines with the right dishes, and your point total will soar.

     Coming this Sunday – that would be Valentine’s Day for you gentlemen who need a reminder: the most romantic cities in America.
