Spring Date Ideas

Spring has sprung, and romance is in the air. From picnics to scenic strolls, we’ve gathered a list of spring date ideas that will make you forget all about the annoying allergies that come with spring. These dates are a refreshing way to say our goodbyes to winter and welcome this new season. Cheers! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ PICNIC UNDER THE STARS The bubbles in your glass will match the sparkling stars in the sky on this romantic spring date. Bring a basket full of hors d'oeuvres, a comfortable blanket, and a bottle of dry Champagne . It will be as if your love was written in the stars. A ROMANTIC ROWBOAT RIDE Ariel and Prince Eric had the right idea: a romantic evening wading in a rowboat around a beautiful blue lagoon. While it ultimately ended in capsizing for them, your date will be successful if you keep the boat afloat and have a bottle of sweet Riesling to share. SPRING CABIN GETAWAY What better way to embrace the fresh season than by connecting with nature. Whisk your date away for a romantic weekend of relaxation in a beautiful woodland cabin. Pack movies, games, and a bottle of Red Bordeaux to round out this spring getaway. BOTANICAL GARDEN VISIT We can’t write a post about spring without a flower reference. Embrace the blooming flora by taking your date to a botanical garden! Literally stop and smell the roses. After getting in touch with your green thumb, you can enjoy a nice glass of fruity Chardonnay . SEE A DRIVE IN MOVIE Grab your popcorn, your favorite candy of choice, and a nice glass of Oregon Pinot Noir . From a heart stopping thriller to a cheesy romantic comedy, this wine will pair well with any movie genre. TAKE A WALK ON THE BEACH Walk hand in hand along the sandy beach. Maybe you’re walking into the sunset or you're busy collecting seashells. Whatever the case, grab a glass of Provence Rosé to sip on while listening to the sound of waves crashing against the shore. VISIT A VINEYARD Whether you travel to a new vineyard or stick to a local winery, nothing can beat a tasting overlooking a beautiful vineyard. A romantic date paired with your wines of choice!

The man, the myth... his cellar was stormed. This Palmer was opened for 90 mins, and it presents like it was just bottled. Beautiful detail of toasted oak on the nose. Palate shows rich, extracted black fruits, with bold tannins. Bowled over with how this showed today. — 2 months ago

Great pull, Jeff.

Gassier

Sables d'Azur Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2017

This wine was very acidic with many fruit characteristics! The aftertaste seemed to resemble strawberries. Alongside the fruity, there was a hint of floral. It is considered an off dry wine, yet I would say it was more towards the sweet side. — 3 months ago

Château Margaux

Margaux Du Chateau Red Bordeaux Blend 1983

These old wines need time to open and tasting it as soon as opened it seemed very flat and not much going on. After decanting and sitting around for a few hours it opened up and was still getting better as I fought to get the last bit at a dinner party, very rude guests who drank it all, just sayin. Had a great nose with some flowers, mushrooms, some earth and something sweet going on. A bit rich and had very nice long finish. Excellent wine. — 2 months ago

Domaine E.A.R.L. George

Montmains "Les Butteaux" Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Very mineral nose : oyster shell, chalk, crushed rocks, hay. Lemony notes after a while,. The palate is georgous and very well balanced : a strong acid backbone with tangy fruity lemon notes all around. Some grip but some roundness on the edges, a long and delicate fruity finish. This is everything I like in a chablis 1er cru. Splendid — 2 months ago
