It’s February and the time is nigh

To think about your honey, your love,

That special someone who makes you sigh.

It’s time to get creative

As the fourteenth will come soon

To think about an expression of your love

Something to make him or her swoon.

The best things in life are shared.

Love and wine are the most fun,

To savor together, a perfect match, a wonderful pair.

So spread the love with a certain treat

A bottle of something red and lush,

A glass of nectar that can make the heart beat

And in turn, a Valentine blush.

Pinot noir is the perfect greeting

To make this Valentine’s Day exceptional

And to ensure your next romantic meeting

Is both heartfelt and memorable.

A hand-numbered bottle, just for you

Valentine’s Day Gift Set: Poetry, Chocolate & Pinot Noir by valleyfog

“come winter, come frozen night
in fog, come drink the grape
tug on its green-glass vine*” (a poem)

“layers of artisanal chocolates
Madagascar, Venezuela, Columbia
hand-crafted, a dapple of cocoa to whet your palate” (a bite)

“unfolds with lush sweet cherry
and blackberries, spice, floral notes
and a hint of cola” (a taste)

Individually, poetry, chocolate and wine are inviting and enjoyable…together they are seductive and luxurious. Our special Valentine’s Day gift set brings all three of these favorite escapes from the every day together into one romantic and delectable box of love.

For a limited time only we are offering a Valentine’s Day gift set of 2007 Waits-Mast La Encantada Pinot Noir, featuring a 4-pc varietal box from San Francisco’s renowned boutique chocolatier Recchiuti. Included in the gift set is a limited edition 2009 Waits-Mast Annual Poetry Collection book. We only have a few cases of the 2007 La Encantada left and only a few copies of our poetry collection left as well, so this is a great opportunity to get your honey a unique gift.

The price for the gift set is $49 total (which is our normal SRP for this wine, so the chocolates and poetry are free) and will be available through Valentine’s Day only in our online store. Click here to order today.
