Why is Wine So Romantic?

Ready to romance your sweetheart? You’re likely to wine and dine them, as wine is most often seen as the elixir of lovers.


We asked a few of our favorite artisan winemakers why this is so:

Wine Club Question: Why is Wine So Romantic?

Keller Estate property

“Wine is so romantic because it gives couples an excuse to set aside time for each other. It really doesn’t matter what varietal you have, as long as it’s something you both enjoy. When in doubt, I always love some Rosé since it keeps both white and red wine lovers happy!”
–Ana Keller, Winemaker, Keller Estate

“Romance and wine encompass not only all of the senses, but mystery, history, science and art. We may never fully understand either, but sure do like trying.”
– Joy Merrilee, Winemaker, Shannon Ridge

“Wine is romantic, intoxicating and built on passion that begins in the vineyard and ends in the glass… or perhaps ends in the intoxicating rush you get when you sip a spicy, silky, brooding red with your love… or the object of your affection. If you’re looking for some romance, especially on Valentine’s day, you’d have to go a long way to find anything that can match it. Heck, wine is already dressed, in red or pink, for Valentine’s Day…”
–Ian Devereaux White, Weather Wines

“Wine is the ultimate expression of love: It takes respect, passion, and creativity to shepherd it carefully from vine to bottle…and the sharing of it with someone you love is a ritualistic, intimate, special experience. “
– Lisa & John Shaw, Alma Sol Winery

Niels and Bimmer Udson, Castor Cellars Founders

“For us, a particular bottle enjoyed for an anniversary or other special occasion will always make us relive that moment when that wine finds its way back to the table.”
— Niels and Bimmer Udsen, Castoro Cellars

So what should you pour on Valentine’s Day?

“All wine is romantic but some types are more romantic than others. Top of the list is Shiraz, particularly youthful ones. The color is so gorgeous and alluring with the deep dark red purple hues that instantly bring a smile to the face. Then you have this spicy enticing voluptuous aroma like no other wine. The palate is always silky and velvety and very, very sexy. Drink a few glasses with your mate and love is instantly in the air.”
–Daryl and Lisa Groom, Groom Wines

“Rhônes are the most food friendly, seductive and romantic wines that are made. There is nobody snooty drinking Rhône wines. They don’t have that aura about them.”–Jeff Cohn, Founder, Jeff Cohn Cellars
