CHARM HER or HIM with this pair of CLASSIC FRENCH COUNTRY WINES
An Aussie Shiraz or Argentina Malbec might get you some points with a Valentine’s dinner at least you remembered. But if you really want to show you care, and know a thing or two about romance, you’ll be pouring something special such as a French white from the Three Musketeer region of Gascogne, and a red with the grand name of Costieres de Nimes and the mighty god Jupiter. (Complete with the planet’s halo, of course!)
Domaine de Meynard has the zingy freshness of Sauvignon along with pretty aromas and fruitiness from the Colombard grape. Just a lovely drink with a life is good feeling.
P.S. This wine is low in alcohol, so consider stocking up for summer parties and general drinking.

Halos de Jupiter is a rich and warmhearted with a strong sense of the earth. And the wild herbs that line the hills of the south of France. One sip and you’ll be on a lovely trip to a lovely place – and your valentine is sure to see a halo around your head for selecting such a romantic wine.
