Valentine's Day Sparkling & Sweets Pairings

by

Jyll Jara, WSET II

Valentine’s Day is definitely a love hate relationship for most. Therefore, it is time to bring the LOVE back people, and start poppin’ those bottles of the bubbly in celebration! Whether you are with the one you love, friends, or celebrating solo, indulge in a much deserved glass (or two), and some decadent dessert.  Let us step beyond the usual chocolate- pairing suggestions, and guide you on a true flavor experience. I have never quite understood why bubbles are mainly consumed on special occasions? Seriously, bubbly should be consumed ALL the time.  XOXO
