Everybody needs a vacation and even if it is just one night away, it will be greatly appreciated. Plan a romantic Valentine?s Day getaway by visiting a Wine Country Bed and Breakfast. Even if you are nowhere near Napa Valley, there are small wineries popping up in various states across the country. From Washington and Oregon to Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri and states in New England, you will be able to find a winery and bed and breakfast near your home. Bed and Breakfasts are great, as you get to lounge as long as you want and you don?t even have to cook. Plan a romantic dinner with just the two of you and a nice bottle of wine. Many are all-inclusive and start at $100 a night.

If you can go a little further from home and you really want to make an impression on your wine enthusiast, there are several packages that offer wine tours in the popular wine countries. Packages can be purchased that will allow you to travel to France or Italy and enjoy vineyard tours, sightseeing and good wine from those countries.

In fact, each tin is matched with the varietal that complements it the best. Not only does your valentine get some great chocolate, but you know exactly which wine to pair it with.

Wine club memberships are excellent for those who enjoy the opportunity to try a variety of different wines and to get them at great prices. The level of the membership will dictate the price of the package, but these are definitely the gift that keeps on giving. You can determine how many months you want to purchase and there are clubs depending on the type of wine your wine lover loves. There are red clubs, white clubs, international and dessert clubs. You are sure to find a club that fits their needs. While you are getting monthly wines, you might consider adding in a chocolate of the month club as well. These offer gourmet chocolates that will be excellent for pairing with a variety of wines that are coming in from the wine club.

Kremser Wachtberg Gruner Veltiner

The Krems and Wachau regions are governed by Central Europe's oldest wine growing association, the Hauerinnung Krems und Stein, which dates back to 1447 and ensures that wines maintain strict levels of quality. This Gruner Veltliner is more proof that this unique Austrian grape variety, which constitutes more than 60% of the grape production in the Krems and Wachau, can not only deliver young and spicy wines, but under the right circumstances can rival many of the great white wines of the world. This wine is full-bodied, capturing all the charm of the Veltliner, but with the power of perfectly ripened grapes. KGV04 KGV04
