We Ferment To Be
If there was ever a holiday made for drinking wine, it’s definitely Valentine’s Day! While celebrating love, friendship, or your devotion to Netflix, show your appreciation with a red or white.

Rather than celebrate with your usual variety, take it up a notch. Choose from one of these special bottles to set the mood. Light some candles, turn on that 90’s R&B and get sipping! Here are three exceptional wines to pop open this Valentine’s Day. You can thank me later. Remember #SharingIsCaring.
