Start the week with some sparks

See also

Here’s a refreshing, albeit romantic plan: celebrate the first night of Valentine’s week with two romantic wines.

Kick off the week with a sparkler that is guaranteed to ignite some flames.

Grapes for Loriella Prosecco Spumante Treviso ($24) are crafted from northeastern Italy with its cool climate – perfect for sparkling wine. The bottle is sexy and from the first pop of the cork you’ll know this night will be amazing.

Allow the bottle to chill for about 20 minutes in a wine bucket half filled with ice and water.

Pour the Prosecco into stemmed, crystal flutes and watch an avalalanche of tiny bubble dance in the glass. Hints of juicy peach and citrus flirt with the luscious aromas. Green apple, lemon zest and lightly toasted hazelnuts flavors advance to center stage.

Pour this is warm pineapple fritters with crème fraiche.

Lost Canyon Whitton pinot noir ($45) is a thin skinned sensitive grape and the wine is described as “a powerful punch like falling in love.”

This 2011 California vintage is a single vintage selection with strawberry aromas followed by an armada of black and red cherry, sweet plum and fig flavors. The finish exudes a perfect balance of tannins and acidity.

Enjoy this with wild grilled salmon and dinner under candlelight.
