Roses are red, violets are blue, Valentine’s Day is incomplete without wine and chocolate, too.
Yes, the holiday of love and romance is upon us, a time to lean into romance and indulge in all things sweet and sumptuous. That usually means a bit of wining and dining, and Justin Vineyards and Winery in Paso Robles, CA., invites you to celebrate by popping open a bottle of its luxurious wine during a virtual tasting session, or by bringing the magic home with a romantic Valentine’s day gift package of its 2018 isosceles paired with a box of in-house chocolate truffles.
Start the holiday weekend by bringing the California vineyards into your living room. Justin’s virtual wine tasting; set for Saturday, Feb. 12th; will see certified sommelier and wine educator Jim Gerakaris guide you and your partner in a comparative vertical tasting that showcases the Vineyards' top-ranked wines.
The tasting package includes the 2017, 2018, and 2019 Isosceles Bordeaux-style blend, a wine that consistently scores 90-plus points on the Wine Spectator scale. The package also includes tasting notes to help you perfectly pair these wines with meals and hors d'oeuvres. Among the luxurious trio, the 2018 Isosceles is the most recognized, ranking as one of the best luxury Cabernet Sauvignon in the nation on the lists of critics and wine lovers alike.
The virtual wine tasting will take place via Zoom, and wines will be shipped in the days before. To ensure your wine bottles arrive on time, orders to all states outside of California must be placed by Monday, Jan. 31, while all orders within the state of California must be placed by Friday, Feb. 4.
If you’d rather spend your romantic time alone, Justin also offers a Valentine’s Day exclusive with some added sweetness. For $95 dollars, the Valentine’s Day gift set comes with a bottle of the flagship 2018 Isosceles, and a five-piece box of decadent chocolate truffles made in-house at The Restaurant at Justin Vineyards. The gourmet truffles are made with high-quality white, milk and dark chocolate ganache with flavors of passion fruit, strawberry and basil, sea salt caramel, cabernet dark chocolate, and hazelnut praline.
Perfect for a romantic night in, indulge in deep flavorful wines and rich chocolates with your partner, or be a little greedy and treat yourself to a luxe night, no partner necessary. Sign up for the virtual tasting and order the Valentine’s Day gift set while supplies last.
