Good times come by themselves, otherwise we go looking after them. We are now in February, which, for many, is the Month of Love. Plus, this next 14th of February, Saint Valentine’s day, happens to be on a Sunday, so we can take all weekend off to celebrate it. This year, we have to celebrate everything!
Either in couples or in family, any excuse is good enough to cook at home or order you favourite restaurant’s menu for delivery and, obviously, serving a good wine along with it. From the Martínez Bujanda Family, we want to make it very easy for you, and for this reason we would like to suggest any of the three lots of wines that we have prepared for this occasion, all of them with the most significant references at our estates: Lote Finca Valpiedra (65 €), Lote Finca Antigua (49.95 €) and Lote Finca Montepedroso (53.95 €). Three proposals to enjoy with or give away to anyone you want.
In addition, in these lots, we have included a box of chocolates from the prestigious firm Jeff de Bruges as a gift. Have you ever paired wine and chocolate? We strongly recommend it, it is a total flavour explosion.
White wines accompany chocolate with their citrus and white fruit notes, whereas red wines provide red berry and spiced flavours. Plus, when they have been aged in barrels, they bring wood, vanilla, coffee and tobacco notes into the picture.
We recommend choosing white chocolate, which is sweeter and creamier, to pair a sweet natural wine like out Finca Antigua naturally sweet, as it will highlight its texture and harmonise the sweetness in your mouth. You can also pair milk chocolate with young or light red wine, as it will enhance its fruity notes. Some selected examples which we suggest are Finca Antigua Garnacha or Finca Antigua Organic. Finally, dark chocolate, which is bitter, will boost the flavours of more intense wines. Thus, we advise accompanying it with a robust wine, which is richer and has more body. Perfect examples include Finca Antigua Syrah, Cantos, or Finca Valpiedra. Give it a taste and choose your favourite combination.
Celebrate Saint Valentines with wine and chocolate – the perfect pairing!
