Add a touch of sparkle to your life with some exceptional wines from Campania Wines
As the world slowly returns to a semblance of normality following 2 1/2 years of the pandemic, one thing’s for certain on Valentine’s Day 2023 – a significant number won’t be taking their significant other out to a chic restaurant for an intimate candlelit dinner; the current cost of living crisis has all of us counting our pennies. Yet sharing beautifully prepared food and wine can be such an expression of love. It’s certainly an integral part of many cultures, not least Italy’s, known throughout time as the ultimate romantic destination.
St. Valentine, too, was an Italian. Though the precise history surrounding him is in dispute, he is regarded by the Catholic church as the patron saint of “affianced couples, beekeepers, engaged couples, epilepsy, fainting, greetings, happy marriages, love, lovers, plague, travellers, and young people.” Goodness – love and plague? Perhaps a little too prophetic in these extraordinary times…
And in these extraordinary times, staying in is the new going out, so if you’re planning a Valentine’s feast for two, or even if you just want to treat yourself, Campania Wines to the rescue!
There’s nothing better to mark a special occasion than a bottle of bubbly and it doesn’t have to be champagne when there are some equally magnificent and cost effective sparkling wines on hand to add some fizz and pzazz to your evening. Here are no fewer than six to tempt your palate:
Feudi di San Gregorio DUBL Esse Zero Dosage Greco – quite a mouthful of a name and a sophisticated taste of citrus and almonds, scented with spring flowers, produced in association with famed Champagne producer, Anselme Selosse.
