Romantic Dinner Pairings

The right wines for a perfect night

Whether that special someone is coming over for the first time, or you're planning a cozy night in with your spouse, there's nothing nicer than a romantic dinner for two. On these special nights, wine can elevate the meal, taking from "good" to "unforgettable." That's why we did the work for you, and put together the Dinner for Two Half-Case, a sweetheart of a selection of sumptuous red, white, and Rosé wines that make a perfect pair with a delicious meal. Just order the half-case and follow this simple guide for a lovely evening.

Start fresh with a crisp white wine

A romantic meal is all about togetherness, so be sure to make time at the beginning of the evening for light conversation and scrumptious appetizer. There is no better wine for this time than a delicate white like 2017 Les Angles Muscadet Sèvre et Maine A.O.C. This refreshing French white is the perfect "beginning of the evening" sipper, and is mild and refreshing on its own, and delicious with aphrodisiacs like fresh oysters, and shareable cheese dishes like baked brie and fondue—a gooey starter that we are head-over-heals in love with.

Pour ravishing reds with the main course

Red is the color passion, so we were sure to include three of our most enticing red wines to pair with your date's favorite main course. Light enough for salmon and poultry, yet rich enough to pair with darker meats and spicy sauces, bright and fruity Pinot Noir is a beautiful food wine. Ramp up the romance by picking a main that your partner loves, then pour them a brimming glass of 2018 El Vigia Pinot Noir. Better yet, add some French sophistication to your table with 2016 Jean Boisselier Coteaux Bourguignon Rouge, a tantalizing Burgundy red made with Pinot Noir-esque Gamay grapes. 

Are they passionate about pasta? Uncork 2016 Abbazia Barbera d'Asti D.O.C.G. and enjoy the way its ripe red berry flavors mingle with your tangy sauce.

Rosé for dessert...or whenever you like

Crisp, pink, and irresistible with a variety of foods, French Rosé and spontaneity go hand-in-hand. Pour luscious 2017 Racine Côtes de Provence Rosé and 2017 Les Collines de Cézanne Rosé with everything from classic deserts like eclairs or sinfully sweet chocolate and strawberries, to decadent cheeses, frilled meats and fresh salads.

Get ready for romance with the Dinner for Two Half-Case

From ravishing reds to sip with a hearty main course, to a white for the fresh oysters, and Rosé for the rich chocolate and ripe strawberries, this sweetheart of a pack is perfect for a memorable meal with your favorite person. Embrace your inner romantic and plan an unforgettable Dinner for Two.
