The allure of wine dates back to ancient Greece and Rome when it was central to social gatherings and romantic celebrations. Wine has long been associated with love and romance, poetry, music and sipping a glass with friends, loved ones or someone dear to the heart.
The Renaissance era often featured wine in paintings, literature, poems and romantic depictions. In the Middle Ages, wine became associated with the feast of Saint Valentine, the patron saint of love, good luck and happiness. It’s no wonder wine is so popular today and is associated with sharing, caring and savoring.
Wine pairs nicely with different types of foods – from steak and seafood to cheese, desserts and different regional cuisines - depending on whether you’re choosing sparkling, red, white or rosé. It also pairs well for Valentine’s Day with flowers, chocolates and meaningful gifts.
