Embrace the Romance with Korbel Sweet Cuvée and Sweet Rosé

GUERNEVILLE (RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY), CA, January 26, 2012 – Picking out the perfect gift for that special someone for Valentine’s Day can be a difficult task. In affairs of the heart, the best gifts are classic gifts, and the classic Valentine’s Day gifts are red roses and heart-shaped chocolates.  This year, why not kick it up a notch and offer your loved one a sweet alternative, Korbel Sweet Cuvée and Korbel Sweet Rosé California champagnes.

Red roses, with their message of love, may always be the number one Valentine’s Day gift, but sweet libations are clearly gaining ground.  Korbel Sweet Cuvée and Sweet Rosé – produced using the time-honored méthode champenoise (in which the bubbles are created by secondary fermentation in the bottle) – are a newer Valentine’s Day tradition.  Korbel Sweet Rosé, for its rose hue and generous fruit, make the traditional gift of red roses wilt with envy, while Korbel Sweet Cuvée speaks to romance with its beautiful gem-like bubbles and bright delicate flavors.  More than a gift to give, these Korbel Sweet varietals are a gift to share on Valentine’s Day.  The romantic color, fresh berry flavors and complex finish invite toasts to love and happiness, while pairing exquisitely with strawberries and chocolate.

For added flair, rim flutes with chocolate (simply heat some chocolate chips in the microwave until slightly melted.  Mix the chips and twist the rim of the flute over the chocolate to coat.  Let stand in the refrigerator for at least 2 minutes to set or until ready to serve).  Place one cherry or raspberry in the bottom of your chocolate rimmed flute and pour Korbel Sweet Cuvée or Korbel Sweet Rosé over the top. 

The Korbel Sweet Cuvée and Sweet Rosé California champagne varieties are truly affordable luxuries guaranteed to create truly special Valentine celebrations.  Simply put a few bottles in the refrigerator so you’ll always have these delicious sparklers on hand for yourself and your special guests.

Established in 1882 in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley, Korbel Champagne Cellars produces the United States’ most popular méthode champenoise champagne. But the true measure of Korbel’s success during its 130 years can be seen in the impact it’s had on American consumers and its presence at various celebrations throughout the years. Owned and managed by the Heck family since 1954, Korbel currently makes eleven champagnes and a limited amount of still wine. In a separate facility, Korbel also produces one of the country’s most respected brandies.
