If Champagne isn't your thing for Valentine's Day, why not try Madeira? "Madeira truly is the drink of love," writes Richard Ehrlich in the (UK) Independent.
We Must Drink Champagne. It Must Be Pink. This is the drink of love. Well, to hell with that. If I'm going to buy my true love something special for Valentine's Day, I want it to be something she'll remember. Which is why I'm proposing Madeira.
Props to viticulturally-inclined Nick for the tip. Perhaps I will revise my menu.
