Lovebirds, sweethearts and paramours, gather round. We've sent Cupid down to the cellar to pick out a handful of divine drinks to woo your Valentine with this year. And we've even discounted a couple of them so you can splash out a little more on the romance elsewhere.
Remember: jewellery for show, flowers quickly go but it's really wine that makes love grow.
The seductive champagne
DELAVENNE CHAMPAGNE GRAND CRU AMOUR DE LOUISE NV (£76.50 ON OFFER)
A luxe champagne in a decorative gift box with the French word for love on it. Doesn't get more romantic than that. If your beloved is called Louise, you kind of have to. Anyone else and you could always get homespun and crafty with the name on the box for maximum romance points.
Amour de Louise is actually named in celebration of a fifth-generation member of the Delavenne family, whose roots are as deep in the Bouzy soil as their vines'. It's a limited edition cuvée, made with tender lovin' care and it's utterly seductive. Rich, rare and generous in every sense of the word.
The foodie red
ALPHA BOX & DICE THE MISTRESS 2019 (£19.99)
The label's all loved-up harmony but what's inside the bottle is a symphony. It's a deep, complex and smooth blend of Touriga Nacional, Tempranillo and Carignan, and it makes sweet sweet love with all kinds of finger foods, from tapas to pintxos to charcuterie.
Le rouge romantique
The best wines are love affairs. Here's what the Marquis de Ségur said of this famous Bordeaux chateau back in the 18th century: "I make wine at Lafite and Latour, but my heart is at Calon". Hence the heart on the bottle and the devotion to quality winemaking that goes on at Calon Ségur to this day.
Le Marquis is the chateau's second wine, which means all the same winemaking expertise but with a much more attractive price tag. The stellar 2016 vintage is drinking brilliantly right now, so this is a classy bouteille to cosy up with à deux on the 14th.
Le rosé romantique
ANNABEL DE CHATEAU PUYBARBE, COTES DE BOURG ROSÉ 2020 (£10 ON OFFER)
Think pink. Open a bottle of this juicy rosé from one of Bordeaux's most undervalued appellations and let your love flow. It's made using biodynamics methods by a Finnish couple and it's packed with rose petal aromas and wild strawberry flavours. If you have shellfish on your Valentine's menu, here's your perfect match.
The pilsner of passion
Why should wine lovers get all the love? For your beloved beer drinker, we'll hand you over to the fine founders of the Only With Love brewery right here in Sussex:"Our drinks are made with love - with the freshest, most healthy ingredients and processes. Our business is driven by love - in support of the communities we work with. Our relationships are built on love - for our customers, partners, friends and family. And our decisions are guided by love: there’s usually a good answer when love is the principle.
Of course, we also hope that our drinks will be enjoyed in the same way - alone or together (but hopefully the latter)."
Big love from Team Butler to all our customers. Hope this selection of delectable drinks does its bit to make your Valentine's Day a special one.
