In this article, we want to give you some ideas, just in case you don0t know what to do for Valentine’s Day at home without breaking the bank. A special day that you can spend with your partner, your family, with friends or on your own and have and amazing time. Take notes!
THINGS TO DO AT HOME ON VALENTINE’S DAY: AN UNFORGETTABLE DINNER
Making dinner is always a great plan. If you love cooking, this is the choice for you.
Make a meal to surprise your nearest and dearest, and choose the perfect wine to go with it. That’s where we can help:
- For finger foods, for example, including cheese: white wines like El Coto Blanco are best with younger cheeses, and aged cheeses pair best with Crianza reds like El Coto Crianza.
- If you’re going in for seafood, we recommend a barrel-fermented 875 m Chardonnay.
- For red meat, Coto de Imaz Reserva or Coto de Imaz Gran Reserva would go amazingly, enhancing its flavour.
Even though you could surprise them with a Valentine’s dinner, another idea would be to make cooking the meal together the main event. You can enjoy a nice evening of cooking and wine - it’s always great fun. Bear in mind that the best thing to do is to plan what you're cooking and have all the ingredients and wine ready.
If you’re going to do it with your other half, this will be a romantic night that you’ll never forget. Pour out a good glass of wine and enjoy the process. A romantic dinner will also help to strengthen the bond you have with the person you love. Raise a glass on Valentine’s Day in the best company!
A HOME WINE TASTING
This idea is definitely a great twist on the classic way of celebrating Valentine’s Day: a wine tasting is a fun option that will breathe some flavour into your special moment.
You could say that this experience will be your “gift” to the other people because you will already know the wines, but we promise you can also learn loads when you start tasting.
What do you need for a home wine tasting?
- At least 3 different bottles of wine to taste
- One glass per person.
- Labels to cover the wine information and not leave anything visible.
- A mask so the colour of the wine doesn’t give them any clues
- Some snacks to go with the tasting
- Plenty of enthusiasm to start tasting!
We promise that this Valentine’s Day won’t be a forgettable one for your friends or that special person if you’re spending it with your partner. Get the ball rolling, don’t let any time go to waste in planning the day. Here’s a series of tips on how to get everything organised.
CONCERTS FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME
Wine and music make for a pairing that will arouse your senses, and it could be one those special Valentine’s Day plans that will make your evening extra special.
Picking the right music will definitely help you unwind, eat, drink and enjoy each other’s company. If you love wine and your friends or loved ones do too, there’s nothing better than surprising them on the 14th of February with a glass of our El Coto Crianza and a great playlist of hits by your favourite band. If you’re going to spend it alone or with your partner, you could even throw a relaxing bubble bath into the mix.
