If you are going to the trouble of preparing a special meal for the object of your affections, why not up the wow factor by choosing a great wine to accompany the food?

The wine buffs at independent wine specialists Roberson Wine have prepared this handy infographic which gives great suggestions to help you impress the object of your affections and explains the best Valentine’s Day food and wine pairings for a meal to remember.

At a push, most of us know that white wines go well with fish and chicken, whilst heavier reds are best paired with beef, game and more substantial dishes.

But what about curries, or dessert, or chocolate (yes really)!

The Husband and I tend to stick to red wine and our favourites include the Malbec and Pinot Noir grape varieties, as well as a full bodied Rioja.

You can find more information about which wines to choose at Roberson’s handy blog – www.robersonwine.com/blog/, including their take on the new drinking guidelines.

My own view?  Drink responsibly with an eye on your health but enjoy the best quality wine you can.

And if you need some dating advice to go with your food and wine, then check out my handy guide – Dating: 11 Ways To Tell They’re REALLY Into You. You can also find loads more tips about how not to do it on my weekly problem page.

After spending the last few years pregnant, I’m currently getting into wine a bit more. Personally, I prefer sweeter wines like Muscato 🙂
