The day of love is just around the corner and we understand the expectations and anxiety it brings. Feeling the butterflies already?
Everyone seems to be busy planning date nights or picking the right dress. Let’s not forget that it’s just not about the day but about the week too! Yes, celebrating the run up to Valentine’s Day is the right way to do it. Trust us, your SO (Significant Other) will be impressed.
So how do you get started? Follow our plan or make one yourself.
Rose Day, 7th February
All you need to get started is a rose. Surprise her by showing up with a Rose in the morning or get a bouquet delivered to her. Even better, plant one yourself and gift it to her.
P.S.- Don’t forget to add a note.
Pop The Question Day, 8th February
Dear Men, what seems so difficult is actually pretty easy. Just say these magical words out loud, “will you be my Valentine?”. And when she says yes, don’t forget to celebrate the moment with her favourite wine.
Dear Women, please don’t wait for him to pop the question. Go ahead and ask him out. Show him that you are ready and willing to be his Valentine.
Chocolate Day, 9th February
Who said it’s only about a box of chocolates? Make it classy by unbottling some dessert wine or pairing her favourite dessert with wine after your dream date.
Leave the rest to the endorphins!
Teddy Day, 10th February
Soft toys make everyone smile. Depending on what she likes, gift her a cute little teddy or a big furry one. This teddy is only to remind her of you in the times that you might be away.
Promise Day, 11th February
While gifts make everyone happy what really stays with one is the words and moments you share. Write your SO a poem or a letter and let them know your feelings. It could be a note or a message too. And if you tell it in person, then that calls for a selfie. A picture and promise to preserve.
Hug Day, 12th February
Surprise your SO with multiple hugs on this day. Hug him when you meet him for dinner and hug her when you drop her back home.
Just like a bottle of wine and a glass next to it, hug it out you two.
Kiss Day, 13th February
Need we say more? Look for the right moment and place and make it an everlasting moment.

When a sommelier describes a wine in the most poetic terms, you almost feel a twinge of envy. You wonder how one divines all those notes, and wish in all earnestly to sound just as pro as him.
As the makers of some of the finest Indian wines, we are often asked this question.
We’ve said this before, and we’ll say it again. Pairing red wines with red meat and white wine with white meat is a foolproof approach. But we love a good food adventure, trying our wines with new cuisines, matching new flavour profiles, playing with food textures and balancing the ingredients.
Our recently concluded contest, ‘Fact or Fiction’, gave us an idea. We decided to delve a little deeper into the world of wines and dig out some hard truths for you. Often, urban legends gain a larger-than-life status, and many a time, fiction parades as fact. So here we are,trying to debunk some myths.
This is the drink you need when you want to drink, but not something too alcoholy. Or when there’s an impromptu party at home, and your wine stash is running low. Or when you just don’t want to invest in way too much wine for a party.
There are days when you load up on salads and run mini marathons. And then, there are days when you decide to cheat with a box full of cupcakes. Today, is one of such days for us. We paired up a few popular favourites with some of our wines. And the results were simply stupendous!
Summers are synonymous with a quintessential quencher – the lemony lime lemonade. A chilled glass of this sweet citrusy drink can lift your spirits instantly. As the mercury rises, most Indian households make big pitchers of this miracle drink and leave it in the fridge for the whole family to sip on.
It’s just after lunch. Your body craves for its shot of caffeine. But your brain screams in protest, “Have you lost your mind? It’s so hot!” Your body responds coolly, “Then let’s get a glass of wine.” Your brain mulls over this, “Wine? Really? I’m not very sure.” Well, dear brain, don’t overthink this.
The red-hot heat of summers makes us crave for something fresh, light and cool. Our instinct is to reach out for a big bowl of crisp salad. And of course, a glass of wine. Whether you’re having the salad for starters or for mains, pairing it with the right wine makes the greens pop alive, … Continue reading Wine And Salad Pairing Ideas
