Remember, your Valentine wants wine!

With the big game in the rear-view mirror and decent living temperatures still a long way hence, I need to find a way to make it through another long, Minnesota winter.

I had a customer come in last Friday to get wine for a Paella party, and I thought that is a great idea to spend any day; hot, cold or otherwise. That minor interaction gave me some inspiration to create some fun summertime meals in the middle of the deep freeze. Denial is the foundation of good mental health in 55125.

Hang in there, people. Shake up your routine and try some of these great Spanish wines with some fun food. Pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training on Valentine’s Day! We’ll get through this.

And Speaking of Valentine’s Day, I have the perfect wine! From Northern Italy comes this great bottle from Villa Jolanda. It’s called I Love You Sparkling Wine. It is a refreshing, off-dry bubbly with hearts and the phrase “I Love You” on it in many different languages! Very cute. Your Valentine will love it.

Tremenda Monastrell Alicante
“Bright ruby-red in color, this wine shows expressive notes of fresh black cherries and red berries mingled with hints of sweet spice, toast, and cocoa. On the palate, this accessible red shows silky texture, liveliness, and a long lengthy finish. Pair it with pork chops Normandy, Kobe beef, or parmesan-crusted asparagus tips.” -Winemaker notes

Telmo Rodriguez Basa Rueda
telmo-basa-13 The 2016 blend is 90% Verdejo, 10% Viura, giving it a more important focus on the native Verdejo than in the past. As always, it is a fantastically refreshing yet serious bottle of wine, with a range of aromas and flavors from stony mineral notes to citrus to tropical fruit. A great match for Spanish omelets or pan-seared white fish.

Rio Madre Rioja Graciano
Rio-Madre-Graciano-Rioja The deep, almost opaque color, the exuberant aromas, and luscious flavors of blackberries and cherries tell you this is not a wine to be taken lightly, but rather it should be enjoyed to its fullest. The grapes for this wine come from vineyards that are approximately 20 years old. The vines are planted on chalky soils located at 600 m (1,969 ft.) above sea level.

Villa Jolanda I Love You Sparkling Wine
