Wine and romance are a match made in heaven. In fact, when you envision Valentine’s Day, it is hard to do so without this dynamic duo in mind. From a bottle to accompany your elegant dinner to pairing a box of chocolates with a glass of vino, Cupid’s work becomes a little easier with the perfect wine. Unsure of what variety of wine will help you to better capture the romance on this love-filled holiday? If you are looking for the perfect wine to celebrate Valentine’s Day, Zinfandel may just be the perfect choice.
When it comes to pairing wine with your Valentine’s Day dinner, the fruity, spicy character of Zinfandel will complement all the aspects of your meal. The wine is both soft and unobtrusive in terms of tannin, so it will not clash with your meal’s flavor.
If you buy your special someone a box of decadent, dark chocolates, you are also in luck. Dark chocolates pair remarkably well with more robust wines, such as Zinfandel. We promise that giving your Valentine dark chocolate and Zinfandel is just as effective as being shot by Cupid’s arrow.
Regardless of where you are or who you share this special day with, it is safe to say that a bottle of Zinfandel is in your future -- after all, all’s fair in love and wine.
If you find yourself hooked to this wonderful wine, Valentine’s Day is not your only chance to indulge in Zinfandel’s captivating flavor. From March 16th to 18th Paso Robles will be paying tribute to Zinfandel. The three day celebration -- Vintage Paso Zinfandel Wine Weekend -- features events at more than one hundred wineries, an educational seminar, the “Z After Party,” and a pairing of Zinfandel with dessert and live jazz.
At Zinfandel-inspired events, such as the Zinposium seminar, you will learn about the heritage grape of Paso Robles from a panel of expert winemakers. The highly anticipated “Z After Party” allows guest to explore twenty Paso wineries for a special Zinfandel tasting, which will be complemented by a delicious selection of desserts and live music by the Darrel Voss Trio.
Make sure you reserve your spot at Vintage Paso Zinfandel Wine weekend. Or better yet, make it a Valentine’s Day gift for you and your special someone.
