Love Is in the Glass: 4 Wines for the Perfect Date

Love rushes blood through your veins and turns your cheeks red at the sight of your beloved. How sweet and tantalizing was that sensation—the only moments of defeat you’d happily give in to!

Love can grasp you in its iron grip and take you on a tour of pleasure, especially the first time it happens. Couples think fondly of firsts: first talk, first date, first kiss, first gift and even your first movie together!

While the two of you might need to revive the spark, wine lovers fall in love anew every time! There’s something about this heavenly drink coursing through your body that makes you want to drink to oblivion.

Love and romance is a timeless match. Here are some of our best suggestions of wines for the perfect date with the love of your life.


Among the variety of reds, a Merlot is probably the one that most first-timers go for. With an elegantly smooth and plumy taste pairs with many main courses, it’s perfect for your magical night. You can enjoy sip after sip of this beautiful red wine in a crystal glass and you’ll never run out of ideas to flirt with her! Trust us, a woman loves nothing more than a man who knows his wines.


Cabernet Sauvignon

With a full-bodied flavor that will overpower your nerves, this is the one connoisseurs enjoy most. If you’re up for falling in love and falling hard, give this one a shot. This variant of red wine tastes best with age. If your date knows this, there’s not a better romantic gesture for the timelessness of your romance than having a Cabernet Sauvignon on the table. Certainly, one of the top wines for the perfect date.

Pinot Noir

If you’ve struggled with charming your date on your night out, you haven’t tried offering them a Pinot Noir. If you have this wine in your crystal glasses, there’s no better way to make them fall in love with you again. Boasting of a rich fruity punch yet a delicate texture, this is the most romanticized of all reds. If you can get your hands on this rare beauty, there’s no way your partner will forget this date!


Known for its tannic exuberance and rich texture, this wine has a peppery profile that wine lovers could die for. Mainly found in California and France, this wine makes a statement of nonchalant boldness and unapologetic charisma that’s perfect to set the mood for the night. Who doesn’t like a partner who’s ready to get the ball rolling and going from all talk to swift action? If you want your date to be mesmerized by your taste and choice in wine, this is the one to go with.
