A Valentine Dinner Menu for 2 (with Wine Pairings)

A Bit of Wine's Valentine Dinner Menu for 2

It's Valentine's Day! Show your special someone how much you love them with an elegant home cooked dinner. Throw out all the heart shaped food ideas, and cook something that will knock their socks off. Check out these delicious recipes to serve up a scrumptious 3 course Valentine dinner menu for 2. 

Of course, we wouldn't want you to forget the wine on such a romantic day. Each course is paired with a varietal that will accentuate the natural flavor profiles of the dish.

Appetizer Course

Option 1: Asparagus wrapped in prosciutto is a delicious and light way to start the evening. Pair this dish with a Picton Bay Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough region of New Zealand.

Option 2: Sherry Shrimp Cocktail is guaranteed to please and set the mood off right. Elegantly displayed in a martini glass will make you look like a professional. Pair this option with Three Knights Chardonnay from Los Carneros California to bring out the natural flavors of both the shrimp & sauce.

Main Course

London Broil with Honey Cumin Carrots and a side of Parsleyed Noodles. Pair this well-balanced meal for lovers with an Alamos Malbec from Argentina.

Dessert Course

Chocolate covered strawberries are romantic and sensual. A wonderful way to end the perfect meal. End the dinner portion of the evening with these dipped delights and a sparkling glass of Cecelia Beretta Conegliano Valdobbiaden Prosecco

After putting all this effort into your dinner, don't forget to celebrate your day with a set of personalized wine glasses
