Whether you’re planning to spend Valentine’s Day with girlfriends, a significant other or your favourite pet, February 14th is a great excuse to stop by your favourite beer store in Vancouver to treat yourself to a great bottle of wine.
Here we share four fabulous wines that you can find in any liquor store in downtown Vancouver, so regardless of whether you prefer red, white or rose, there’s sure to be something that suits your taste.
- Therapy Pinot Gris
Pinot Gris is known for being a rich, fruity and dry white wine. Therapy’s Pinot Gris is full-bodied and well-rounded, and it has lovely notes of ripe pears and fresh apples. This is perfect to put on ice and pair with spicy foods.
- Landlust Riesling
This German white wine is semi-dry with crisp and refreshing fruit notes tempered by a mildly earthy base. If you’re looking for a wine that pairs perfectly with sushi or Thai food and can be found at your favourite liquor store in Vancouver, this is a winner.
- Joie Rose
Rose wines are having a major moment. This rose is made in the Okanagan Valley, which means it’s great for anyone looking for local Vancouver wines to try. It has notes of strawberry, raspberry, blood orange and sage that complement the acidity and fresh tartness of the finish.
- Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon
Cakebread Cellars is a Napa Valley vineyard that produces a bold, rich Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a dry, full-bodied red wine with complex notes of toasted oak, dark cherry, boysenberry and black currant.
This would be a great wine to pair with a rich, dark chocolate or a savoury, well-seasoned steak.
