My Annual Valentine’s Day Wine Gift Guide is one I look forward to as it’s always full of delicious 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. Their 2021 Rosé is not only beautiful in color it’s extremely lovely on the palate. With strawberry notes This aromatic Rosé opens with vibrant strawberry, bubblegum, honeyed fruit, and watermelon aromas mingled with rose petal and orange blossom. On the palate, this rosé pops with pink grapefruit, raspberry, and more strawberry! The fruit and acid balance is refreshing and delightful. A light, yet lingering finish leaves you wanting more. The grapes hail from Knight’s Valley, and the wine is made of 100% Petite Sirah.
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.

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 of 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 10% (can not combine with other discounts).
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!
Morgan Winery is a brand I’ve known about since my first Sommelier Trip to the Santa Luca Highlands and I visited their winery. This family-owned and operated brand makes stunning wines which every vintage I adore. Gift the gift of amazing Pinot Noir, Syrah or Chardonnay from Morgan Winery and your Valentine will thank you! Trust me the wines are that delicious. Shop online at Morgan Winery here.
Another brand I’ve fallen for over the years is Print Fresh. They have the CUTEST Pajama prints and I wear them year-round. Whether in the summer where my go-to’s are my citrus t-shirt and shorts of the winter where I love the warmer flannel PJs they’re truly the best. For Valentine’s Day surprise your sweetie or Valentine with a fun PJ print or their festive Valentine’s Day Prints. Shop Print Fresh online here.
My favorite summer print of Print Fresh!
The Foggy Dog is one of my favorite brands for my Frenchie Ernestine. For Valentine’s Day, they have the cutest bandanas and even offer personalization. See more and shop The Foggy Dog online here.
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!
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).
Seppi Wines is a brand I adore founded by my dear friend Kelsey Phelps. Not only do you get to support a female business owner and vintner you get to enjoy stunning Rose & Blanc de Blanc Wines. Shop online at Seppi Wines here and mention the JSF when you check out so they know how you discovered them!
SUTRO WINE CO.
Speaking of family-owned wineries, Sutro Wine Co. is a Healdsburg-based Winery that I’ve been enjoying for a few years as well. It’s made by Winemaker Alice Sutro.
