This Valentine's Day, why not show your sweetheart some love with a box of chocolates and a sweet bottle of wine that pairs perfectly? If sweet's not your thing, try a bottle of wine that pairs with delicious Spanish desserts like flan, natillas, arroz con leche, or tocino de cielo. Or, if you prefer to keep things simple and/or focus on a single high-end Valentine's Day gift, go for an aperitivo that's significant enough to stand on its own.
Here are some of our favorite sweet red wines, sweet white wines, and sweet fortified wines to enjoy on this special day with your special someone.
