Dating for Wine Lovers: Tips and Tricks
Do you love wine? Do you enjoy trying different wines from around the world? If yes, then we have something in common. I’m a wine lover and I’m sure that there are many more like us who share this passion for vino.
But here’s one question – can wine pairings lead to a perfect date?
You might think that the idea of Dating for wine lovers is a bit unconventional, but it has potential! Wine can bring people together, make conversations more engaging and help set the tone for an intimate evening.
With this in mind, we’ve drafted a few tips to help wine lovers make their dates unforgettable!
1. Pick Your Moment
This means choosing not just when you schedule your date but also picking out moments where having a glass of fine wine would enhance the occasion. You don’t want to show up on your first date with an exquisite bottle of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild 1945 because it might be too over-the-top! The idea here is about balance so select wines that fit the moment.
2. Choose Wisely
When planning or selecting wines specifically for your dates, it helps if you know what types of wines are favorites when pairing with various cuisines or settings. Learn what classic pairings go well together — e.g., seafood goes well with Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio while grilled meats go great with reds like Bordeaux blends — and then match pairs to suit preferences without being too rigid in them!
3. Experiment Together
One of the many perks of dating another person who shares your passion is experiential learning — try new things together! Long gone should be those awkward blind dates where one party isn’t sure what kind of restaurant or cuisine wants to eat — now they both have amazing options! An example: someone knows that Chilean Sauvignon Blanc they came across in a store and is curious if it pairs well with spicy Thai food; why not experiment and find out together?
4. Don’t Forget About The Venue
When planning your date, it helps if you consider the wine selection options available onsite. If the venue has a sommelier or an extensive wine list, there’s always an opportunity to try something new and personalized to you both! Wine bars are especially suited for dating wine lovers.
5. Just Have Fun!
Remember that the idea of dating is to have fun and enjoy each other’s company- while drinking some delicious vino along the way! So don’t stress too much about picking the perfect bottle or constantly fretting over whether or not your date enjoys what you’re drinking. Take this as an opportunity to relax, get to know each other better through oenophobia conversations, load up on tasty snacks (charcuterie board anyone?) and just enjoy time together.
Now before we wrap things up here are some interesting facts about wines that every wine lover should know:
– Did you know that ancient Romans added lead acetate as sweeteners in their wines?
– There’s at least one type of red grape vines developed naturally from Pinot Noir – Gamay.
– An alembic still was first used in every winery by Armenia 6100 years ago!
Dating another person who shares your passion for good quality vinos —and all its secrets— can make dates more fulfilling than ordinary places like cinemas or restaurants! So with potential benefits abound let’s declare cheers (or santé). Hopefully this post will help spark some inspiration towards finding love somewhere near Sancerre…
