If you’re mulling over how to show that special someone how much you care this St Valentine’s Day, we’ve got a great selection of gift ideas at the loft.
Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a nice bottle of fizz – but what sparkling variety to go for? We’ve got a great selection of bubbles at the loft and, if your lover isn’t a “Champagne-or-nothing” traditionalist, why not pop their cork with a bottle of Prosecco?
This Italian sparkling wine hails from the northern Veneto region of one of the world’s most romantic destinations and, once viewed as a poor relation to Champagne, is now lauded in its own right; offering a sweeter, lighter alternative to the classic French fizz. At ‘the loft’ we have several varieties of Prosecco in stock ready for Valentine’s weekend, and top of our recommendations are:
Botter Spago Prosecco – For those who find Champagne too dry for their palate this lightly sparkling, sweeter tipple is a great alternative. Perfectly enjoyable, light and fruity at just £8.50 a bottle.
Maschio dei Cavalieri Rive di Colbertaldo 2013 Valdobbiadene Prosecco – a multi award-winner, we’ve had rave reviews from customers who’ve bought this variety – find out why for yourself for £13.50 a bottle.
Vilarnu Cava Brut – A Cava as opposed to a Prosecco and available in traditional white or delicious Rosé, this is a real favourite with the team at the loft. We find it has the perfect balance of dryness, fizz and fruity notes (strawberry in the case of the Rosé) without being cloyingly sweet. £10.50 a bottle.
Modella Prosecco – An homage to the Italian love of beauty – be it architectural, natural or in human form – this delicious, frothy Prosecco has a Champagne-style dryness that made it very popular during tastings; £9.99 a bottle.
So, whether you plan to serve a glass chilled as an aperitif to a special romantic meal, or to present your Valentine with a bottle to enjoy at leisure, you won’t go far wrong with Prosecco!
Rich, decadent dishes and the art of seduction go hand-in-hand so, if you are looking to impress this St Valentine’s Day with a delicious meal for two, one of our ‘top shelf’ reds could be the perfect partner to your romantic menu.
From Amarone and Barolo to Chateauneuf du Pape, Chianti Classico and Vintages from some of the finest French Chateaux, we have something to impress even the most ardent wine lover!
For the Gent – or Lady – who prefers the grain to the grape, why not handpick a selection of Continental beers? With a diverse range of styles on offer alongside limited edition gift packs, many of which come with a glass, it’s a great way of saying ‘I love you’ to the beer lover in your life!
Located at Wolseley Bridge near Colwich, between Stafford and Rugeley on the A51 (opposite the garden centre), the Wolseley Wine Loft stocks a decadent range of red, white and rosé wine varieties alongside specially selected continental beers.
