My Annual Valentine’s Day Wine Gift Guide is one I look forward to as it’s always full of delicous wines any wine lover will adore. When I think of Valentine’s Day I think of Red Wines & Bubbles so there are plenty of great options of both below. Happy Gift Giving and as always when you ship this year please shop small and support small businesses. Each and every one of the wineries on this list is family-owned and in some cases female owned (I love supporting other female business owners). Thanks for giving this Guide a peek and I hope you’ll find new wines you discover here and may even try out and fall in love!
Bennett Lane Winery
Bennett Lane is a family-owned Napa Valley Winery located in Calistoga. I first got familiar with Bennett Lane on a Media trip to Calistoga in 2018 and ever since, I’ve adored them. This North Coast Sparkler is an incredible addition to their fabulous lineup of Napa Valley Wines. The blend is 53% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir, and 2 % Pinot Meunier. It has the perfect blush pink hue, and opens with aromas of raspberry, vanilla, and toasted brioche. On the palate the wine has rich flavors of strawberry and cream, and the perfect balance with a a clean finish.
Even better, as a JSF reader, use the code LOVE to enjoy $5 flat rate shipping site-wide. Learn more about Bennett Lane and purchase this lovely Brut Rose online here.
Coravin Sparkling Wine Opener
Those of you who drink as much Champagne & Sparkling Wines as I do NEED the NEW Coravin Sparkling Wine Opener!
Coravin Sparkling™ is the sparkling wine preservation system that allows you to open a bottle one weekend, then finish it at brunch the next.

Fly With Wine
Another essential for anyone who travels like me and likes to bring wine with them is a travel wine suitcase from Fly With Wine. There are two different sizes, one which holds a case (the size I prefer) since I am usually packing for a week or two and a case is about what I’d want. Or, there is a smaller size that holds 6 bottles of wine. Learn more about Fly With Wine online here, use the code JSF15 to save 15% (can not combine with other discounts).
The stunning new Rose Colored Travel Wine Suitcase!
The suitcase is great you can either pack it with wine on both sides (6 -12 bottles depending on which size you have) or you can pack one side with wine and the other with clothes. It is brilliant!
Riedel Dom Perignon Wine Glass Set
As you know I LOVE Champagne so what’s a better gift than these gorgeous Riedel Wine glasses made in partnership with Dom Perignon. Also, I’m guessing we don’t all get to drink Dom Perignon daily so even if you’re opening something a bit less special and over the top enjoying them in the stunning Riedel glass wear makes all the difference. Purchase Dom Perignon for Riedel Glasses online here.
Speaking of Dom Perignon, read about my Visit to Maison Dom Perignon in Champagne here and see what this historical brand is so near and dear to my heart!
The Consummate gift for Cabernet lovers!
This gift set includes a magnum of Rombauer’s 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and a gold Rombauer wine key. 2018 was a stellar vintage in Napa and this Cabernet reflects that quality. With fruit from AVAs across Napa Valley including Oakville, Atlas Peak, Stags Leap District, Calistoga, and St. Helena, this wine is a signature Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. There are both red and black fruit aromas, with a full, structured yet lush body and a long finish. The gold wine key, engraved with a Rombauer logo, is double hinged to make opening this magnum, and all other Rombauer wines, easy and beautiful. Both items come packaged in a white gift box with a Rombauer logo. $175 with $10 shopping.
Consider this and other great gifts for Valentine’s Day and all other reasons to share joy.

When I think of holiday fun it always involved Bubbles and celebrations. What’s more perfect than giving the gift of Sparkling Wines? Especially when it includes complimentary gorgeous custom gift wrapping (Shown below).
