Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Whether in a relationship or single, Valentine’s Day can be a lot of pressure when trying to make restaurant reservations, find the perfect present and create an incredible day, one that’s different from the past year. Instead of going out for Valentine’s Day, eliminate the stress and create a unique experience with your partner at home this Valentine’s Day. If you’re single, don’t sulk – use this day to celebrate the love you have for yourself and your friends! Here are some fun and creative ideas below to bring your Valentine’s Day to the next level!
For The Creative Couple:
Spice things up with wine cocktails you can create together. Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore is the perfect base for a variety of bubbly cocktails to add sparkle to your Valentine’s Day.
Strawberry Mint Bellini
4 cups of strawberries, sliced
Full strawberries for garnishing
10 mint leaves, torn
2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
¼ cup confectioners’ sugar
Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore
Blend strawberries, confectioners’ sugar, mint and lemon together in a blender until smooth. Chill in refrigerator for 10 minutes. Dived the strawberry mixture among champagne flutes. Top each with Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore, stir. Garnish each glass with 1 strawberry.
For The Foodie Couple:
They often say “Food Is The Way To Someone’s Heart” so this Valentine’s Day why not ensure that that heart stays happy for a long time by making a delicious Valentine’s Day fondue dinner paired with Santa Margherita varietals. This pretty red cast iron Cuisinart Fondue Set is the perfect centerpiece for creating an intimate and romantic experience. Get creative with the set, melting anything from cheese for dipping pieces of cut meats, bread or vegetables, to melted chocolate for dipping fruits, pretzels, marshmallows, and more! A glass of Pinot Grigio Alto Adige is perfect with chicken. Red meats are enhanced with Chianti Classico Riserva. Prosecco Superiore should be paired delightfully with creamy dishes, fried fare and spicy dishes.
For The Wanderlust Couple:
Italy’s luxurious vineyards make for the most romantic Valentine’s Day setting. Unfortunately, it’s a little too late to book a flight, so instead transform your home into a vineyard and transport your significant other to the greatest romantic destination. Decorate the room with artificial ivy vines and white lights, and set up a wine and cheese tasting platter fit for Cupid!
For The Friends Celebrating Together:
Who says Valentine’s Day parties are just for couples? Host a Singles Only party, or have a mix of singles and couples and throw a game night with sushi and bubbly! Making your own sushi is a fun activity all your friends can enjoy together!
For The Single Spending The Day Treating Themselves:
Be your own Valentine and give yourself some TLC. Open up a bottle of wine, pour yourself a glass (or two), sit back and unwind with a relaxing spa kit, like this one by Cuccio for around $20.
No Valentine’s night in is complete without these tasty Santa Margherita Wines!
Pinot Grigio Alto Adige
This dry white wine has a straw yellow color. Its clean, intense aroma and bone-dry taste (with an appealing flavor of Golden Delicious apples) make Santa Margherita’s Pinot Grigio a wine of great personality and versatility. $26.99
Chianti Classico Riserva
On the Nose it gradually unfurls flowers, fruit, spice and gunflint in an intriguingly absorbing array of earthly wide-ranging aromatics. Sangiovese’s austere tannins are firmly in the traditional mould, underpinning progression on the subtly nuanced but centered palate, which combines warmth, freshness, savouriness and minerality. $18.99
A sparkling wine with a clean, pleasantly fruity bouquet, reminiscent of rennet apples and peach blossom. Its flavor is rounded and well-balanced. $17.99
How do you plan on celebrating Valentine’s Day this year…a fun and fast-paced night out, or a romantic and cozy night in?
