Wine and an Aphrodisiac!

Happy Valentine's Day 2018

The word “Aphrodisiac” is derived from Ancient Greek and is tied to the name for the Greek Goddess of beauty and love, Aphrodite (Translated as “pleasures of love”).  Since it is Valentine’s Day, we thought it appropriate to suggest some top aphrodisiacs paired with some of your favorite InVINtions’ wine!

Chocolate:

  • Milk Chocolate- Riesling
  • Dark Chocolate- Stag’s District Merlot
  • Dark Semisweet Chocolate- BC Pinot Noir or the Red Velvet Port
  • Dark Bittersweet Chocolate- Old Vine Zinfandel

Oysters:  Fume Blanc

Asparagus:  Unoaked Chardonnay

Watermelon:  Moscato

Pomegranate:  Sangiovese

Banana:  Gewurztraminer

Maca:  Not familiar to you, don’t know what this is… well, now you do!  You’re welcome!

Maca is a sweet root veggie that carries the title of the “Peruvian Viagra”!  It is said to increase stamina and heighten awareness.  We suggest you try it with a glass of our Chenin Blanc.
