Wines for your Valentine

Want to impress your date on Valentine’s day? Or maybe you want to treat your significant other to something special? Perhaps you’re just getting drunk with your friends. Who cares? There’s always an opportunity to drink wine!

Here are my top choices for Valentine’s day:

Pierre Peters Cuvée de Reserve Grand Cru

At 379kr, this is my go to Champagne! Perfect for an aperitivo, a welcome drink or just because. And if you live in Oslo, it’s readily available in the local wine stores.

Agrapart Terroirs Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs

I am a blanc de blanc girl. 100%. It’s an excellent alternative to the Pierre Peters that won’t break the bank. With subtle bubbles, crisp fruit and long finish it’s easy one of my favorite Champagne’s these days!

Vietti Roero Arneis

This might be one of my favorite white wines from Piemonte. If you haven’t tried Arneis before, you should give it a go!

Citrus and stone fruit on the nose. Perfect contrast of sweet and sour in the mouth. Very good acidity and long finish.

Jean Marc Boillot Macon-Village

Are you a Chardonnay person? Or a white wine person? Then you’ve got to try this one. And it’s finally back in stock in many stores. So if you live in Oslo, Asker or Bærum, count yourself lucky!

Cascina Fontana Barbera

A killer Barbera available at a few local stores in Norway. Mario makes Barbera “The Mario Fontana way” and I love it. Cascina Fontana normally follows the “traditional” winemaking method, but not for the Barbera. Instead of big barrels, the barbera spends time in concrete tanks.
