February 14th; the day of love is just around the corner. The American tradition of celebrating love did not take long to reach fanatical followers in Europe, with couples are preparing their gift or surprise for their loved one days in advance.

Oenou Yi – Ktima Vassiliades graciously accompanies lovers by proposing fine wines as the ideal gift for Valentine’s Day. A selection of the winery’s best labels is presented in the most festive and romantic boxes, alongside delicious chocolates that will impress your partner.

“Wine; love’s truth serum”

The ancients believed that wine could help lovers express their true feelings more easily and honestly. Browse Oenou Yi – Ktima Vassiliades’ wide selection of labels and pick one to accompany a romantic dinner and celebrate your love.

Start your evening with the semi-sweet Thaleró – Red, a wonderful aperitif. Its sweet aftertaste evokes notes of honeycomb and dried fig that will absolutely whet your appetite for what follows.

For an appetizer, choose a salad with rocket leaves, avocado, orange and pomegranate, topped with tahini, honey and lemon dressing. Enjoy it with the refreshing White Melody. Its oily, full and balanced mouth will create the perfect pairing.

For the main course, we suggest sticking to the clichés that dictate shellfish as the ultimate aphrodisiac. Prepare the Neapolitan pasta alle Vongole, with oysters and sour cream. Pair your pasta with Oenou Yi – Ktima Vassiliades’ Playia Rosé Dry and let its velvety, full and exuberant palate, result in a memorable aftertaste that perfectly pairs with oysters.

Finally, complete your menu with a mouth-watering dessert. If you are a chocolate lover, make the classic and undeniably delicious recipe of a chocolate souffle. If you prefer something different, we recommend trying a red velvet trunk with cream and red sponge cake. Regardless of your choice, any of the two will definitely generate great impressions, especially if you combine them with our reputable dessert wine Commandaria. Its characteristic bouquet of aging is reminiscent of dried fruits, honey and spices and warranties an elevated culinary experience.

Whether you celebrate that day or not, at least live the experience. See it as an opportunity to express your love to your other half. Make a toast to love with wines from Oenou Yi – Ktima Vassiliades!
