A romantic evening at home to celebrate Valentine’s Day is becoming more and more popular. Stay home and have a delicious, cozy, romantic dinner while sipping on fantastic wine. Below are some delicious and romantic wines, perfect for your stay-at-home evening!

My favorite thing to do on Valentine's Day is to stay in at home and have a delicious, cozy, romantic dinner while sipping on fantastic wine. Avoid the hoopla at over-priced restaurants and just enjoy your partner's company at home. The meal doesn't have to be fancy, just something we both love. A special occasion wine does not have to be overpriced either.
