Love & Wine this Valentine’s Day

 

Love and Wine on Valentines

On this so called, ‘most romantic day of the year’ my thoughts turn to the connection between love and wine. If there isn’t any love in your life, then rest assured that there’s always wine!

Which leads me nicely onto my next point; Puglian wines, which are one of the best kept secrets that you can discover with us on our Puglian Pleasures wine experience. Why is it such a big secret? Because the locals like to keep all the fantastic wine here in Puglia! So, why not discover some of the typical wine varieties of this region, like, Primitivo di Manduria, Negroamaro and Salice Salentino with us. You’ll get to meet a local family who’s heart and soul goes into each and every bottle of wine that they produce at their boutique vineyard. But our wine experience tour is more than just about wine, it’s also about passion for local cuisine and keeping family traditions alive.

So, returning back to Valentines Day, I’d like to share with you some famous quotes on the ‘Love and Wine’ (mainly wine!) to wet your appetite.
