Rodney Strong Chalk Hill Chardonnay & Andante Dairy Heart-Shaped Cheese
Throw some extra cozy blankets on the couch, turn the lights down and queue up a romantic movie. This first pairing of Rodney Strong Chalk Hill Chardonnay ($13.99) and Andante Dairy Heart-Shaped Cheese ($7.99) is a classic pairing to elevate any night in. The richness of the Jersey cow’s cheese and lemony tang of the goat cheese pair perfectly with the creamy texture and notes of Meyer lemon in the Chardonnay. Enjoy!
Francis Coppola Sofia Blanc De Blancs & Tsar Nicoulai American Paddlefish Caviar
This next pairing is the epitome of passion and indulgence. Turn on some Frank Sinatra, set the table (don’t forget candles and flowers) and get ready for romance. Francis Coppola Sofia Blanc De Blancs ($12.99) and Tsar Nicoulai American Paddlefish Caviar ($19.99) are elegant and the perfect beginning to any romantic dinner for two. The savory saltiness of the caviar pairs perfectly with the clean, crisp flavors of the Blanc De Blancs.
Rodney Strong Estate Vineyards Pinot Noir & Oliver’s Own Chocolate Covered Strawberries
We love this classic pairing of Rodney Strong Estate Vineyards Pinot Noir ($14.99) and Oliver’s Own Chocolate Covered Strawberries ($12.99/lb)! It’s romantic, but classic and is a great end to a romantic evening. The ripe red fruit and lighter body of the Pinot Noir pairs perfectly with the smooth character and cocoa components of the chocolate.
However you celebrate Valentine’s Day, you can’t go wrong with one of these pairings – as a gift, or to help set the mood. C’est la vie mon amour!
