Gather your gal pals because it’s time to make Galentine’s Day plans! The Valentine’s Day Eve celebration that got its start on one of our all-time favorite tv shows, Parks and Rec, has turned into a real-life ladies celebrating ladies holiday, and it’s right around the corner!
For those planning to honor their female friendships with a little get together, you’re in luck! Our wine team has selected five wines to share with your Galentines.
2016 JULES TAYLOR SAUVIGNON BLANC
New Zealand Was $17.98 | NOW $14.98
“This stunningly juicy drop captures the essence of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The palate embraces concentrated flavours of citrus and passionfruit and carries subtle hints of fresh summer herbs with lemongrass. These flavours linger giving a long well-rounded finish to the wine.” – Jules Taylor
Pair with: This Sauv Blanc is perfect for the cheeseboard – especially goats’ cheese and feta
2016 CHÂTEAU DE L’AUMÉRADE CUVÉE MARIE-CHRISTINE CRU CLASSÉ ROSÉ (CÔTES DE PROVENCE)
France Was $21.98 | NOW $16.98
“Bottled in the Fabre family’s specially designed Gallé bottle, this wine is a classic. It has fine ripe, but crisp, fruit and delicious balanced acidity. With its fresh character, which is contrasted with the intense fruit, this is a real food friendly rosé.” – Wine Enthusiast
Pair with: While the food pairing options are almost endless, try this crisp and dry rose with a salad or green veggies
ANIMAL NATURAL VINEYARDS MALBEC
Argentina Was $22.98 | NOW $17.98
“This organic Malbec is expressively fruity and fresh. With notes of plums, cherries, blackberries, and currants. In the mouth it unleashes its full potential, combining soft tannins with an elegant and personal structure.” – Vineyard Brands
Pair with: Leaner red meats, even lighter cuts like dark meat turkey or roasted pork, and portobello mushrooms. But don’t stop there! “The pairing secret of Malbec is that it works well with pepper, sage, creamy mushroom sauces, melted cheese, and in particular, blue cheese.” – Wine Folly
DONATELLA CINELLI COLOMBINI ROSSO DI MONTALCINO
“Dark ruby red. On the nose, hints of small red fruits that linger at length. Intense, harmonious, reasonably warm and suitably tannic on the palate.” – Donatella Cinelli Colombini
Pair with: “Sangiovese pairs with a wide range of foods because of its medium weighted body and savory character. Use Sangiovese’s savory as a congruent flavor with herbs and tomatoes. – Wine Folly One word comes to mind when I hear herbs and tomatoes – pizza!!
And to toast your lady friends…
JOH. BAPTIST DIETRICH RIESLING EXTRA TROCKEN DEUTSCHER SEKT
Germany Was $13.98 | NOW $10.98
Sekt is the German name for sparkling wine. This sparkler is 100% Riesling in the extra dry style. On the nose, bright fresh and citrusy aromas. On the palate, apple, pear and citrus fruits. Finish is zippy!
