Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

2020-01-17T16:26:43+00:00

With Valentine’s Day coming up in less than a month, it may be time to start thinking about what to gift your loved one this year.  Harvest Card partners with delicious restaurants and wineries that are sure to be a great suprise this holiday. Everything is red and pink for Valentine’s Day, so why shouldn't your wine be as well?  For a light, crisp wine (that is also a beautiful shade of pink), try the 2018 Rosé of Pinot Noir. This wine is from Moshin Vineyards and features bright flavors of strawberry, cherry and watermelon. You can also taste a hint of grapefruit. For something a little bit darker, we recommend the Zinfandel Courage 2017 from Pedrocelli Winery. With a dark red hue, this wine is full bodied with red berry, vanilla, and mocha notes. If you would like to take your partner out for a delicious meal, John Ash & Co. is a romantic, fine dining restaurant. With a large selection of wines and entrees, this
