If love is in the air this Valentine's Day, here are 10 romantic wines you can open on February 14.

If you're looking for the best wines to drink this Valentine's Day, then just call us cupid.

Whether you celebrate Valentine's Day, Galentines's Day or are just looking for a great wine to open on February 14 – we've put together a love-list of wines that have been rated 'highly recommended' or 'outstanding' by the Halliday Tasting Team.

Dining on Asian cuisine and after a white wine match? Try Bink's 2023 Turbo Lover Riesling or Shut the Gate's For Love Watervale Riesling. The Tar & Roses 2022 Chardonnay will match linguini vongole, while Snake + Herring's Tainted Love Syrah Rosé or Hart of the Barossa's Soul Mate Rosé will pair perfectly with your takeout pizza and favourite romcom.

If you're drinking red wine this Valentine's Day, for something extra special try Thomas Wines' Kiss Limited Release Shiraz. If you're seeking value for money reds, Billy Button's The Beloved Shiraz is "a big, lovable kind of shiraz", says Jeni Port. And if grenache is more your speed, Valentine's Heathcote Grenache comes highly recommended by Jane Faulkner.

For the cabernet lovers, try the Directors' Cut Cabernet Sauvignon from Heartland Wines, or Two Hands Wines' Sexy Beast
