Valentine's Day wine

Source: SheKnows.com

It has become common practice for wine writers and marketers to profile certain wines for Valentine’s Day. Many would have you believe that Valentine’s Day was an invention of a certain greeting card company, but they would be incorrect. We’ve been celebrating the day since the 5th century. Of course, it hasn’t always been about love. That started happening in the chivalrous times of the 15th century. We’ve been giving candy and flowers to our sweethearts since.

Regardless of whether you believe it to be a silly holiday, there is no denying that a lot of us will be popping open a special bottle to share with a loved one this day. So, what will your choice be?

Here are few of the more common suggestions:

  • Rosé or blush wine – nothing says Valentine’s like a pink wine
  • Sparkling wine or Champagne – the ultimate in pampered luxury
  • That special bottle – been hanging on to something for a special occasion? No time like the present.

However you celebrate, we at Through the Bunghole would like to wish you a very happy Saint Valentine’s Day 2012.

Bottoms up! (um, wait, that sounds a little risque on this occasion. How about… Cheers?)
