If you’re considering an at-home Valentine’s Day celebration but still want to make it memorable, we’ve found the Valentine’s Day wine gift that will get the night off to a romantic start.
A romantic wine tasting at home kit
It’s called the Grand Love Triangle and it’s a romantic, French wine tasting kit for two. This limited-edition Valentine’s Day wine gift box includes a white, rosé and red wine, sourced from vineyards in the Languedoc, Bordeaux and France’s southwest.
A charming, mini wine tasting kit, each wine is packaged in two single-serve vials, one for you and one for your partner. In other words, it is a wine gift for you both! This gives you and your lover the chance to celebrate Valentine’s Day with three different wines – and without the risk of overindulging. The wine sample bottles are made with recycled and double-coated PET packaging, which makes this at-home wine tasting both attractive and environmentally savvy.
About the wines
The creator of this Valentine wine gift, Le Grand Verre, sent me a sample to experience the romance of this special wine package. And although I admit to failing on turning my tasting into a romantic experience, I did take tasting notes on these rather lovely wines:
- The red blend
The wines include a Bordeaux red blend with a velvety texture. Made from a blend of sustainably farmed Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, it is an easy-drinking red with subtle black fruit flavors and a hint of vanilla on the finish. Those who appreciate the wines of Bordeaux will be interested to note that the appellation is Haut-Medoc Cru Bourgeois.
- The Sauvignon Blanc
The white featured in this wine sampling kit is a Sauvignon Blanc from the Côtes de Gascogne in southwest France. The simplest and most refreshing of the three wine tastings, it makes a great starter for your evening with lemon and light tropical flavors. This wine would make a welcome addition to a simple and elegant aphrodisiac dish like this Marinated, Grilled Bison.
- The rosé
The rosé, which is the most romantic of the three, offers a gorgeous, peachy-pink color in the glass. A blend of Syrah and Grenache made with organic grapes, it is a very romantic wine with an orange blossom aroma and citrus and strawberry flavors. Serve it with a seafood dish like my Steamed Mussels in Tarragon Broth.
This wine tasting experience is put together by Le Grande Verre for an experience of both romance and great flavor.
