Our Favourite Loving Wines and Bubblies This February

We already covered most of our favourite February wines and bubblies in our Valentine’s Day article here, but in order to uphold our new tradition of introducing you to all the latest products we’ve been able to try, we’ll do another round-up of some sweet-loving wine and bubblies we received this last month.

Da Luca Prosecco

We spent Valentine’s Day with Da Luca Prosecco, a beautiful bubbly all the way from Italy that goes down incredibly smoothly. You’ll find both the standard Da Luca prosecco around, as well as this Da Luca Sparkling Rose, a more romantic version of the former. (Well, in our minds at least). Not only is Da Luca delicious, but it’s also super easy on the pocket, and you’re looking at an estimated retail price of between R89 and R110 per bottle, depending on which one and where you buy.

Leopard’s Leap

The next press drop gift we received was a Valentine’s Surprise from Leopard’s Leap. We featured the Leopard’s Leap Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir in our Valentine’s Day Bubblies list. But the one we received in the press drop was the Leopard’s Leap Chardonnay Pinot Noir wine, which is always insanely delicious. The estimated retail price of this is R90 per bottle, depending on where you buy.

Leopard’s Leap is spicing up their wines this year and included in the press drop were ingredients for their new Sweetheart’s Smoothie. You’ll find the recipe below.

Disclaimer: I was so excited by all of this that I forgot to save my images. Really, not smart. So I’m uploading the Insta Stories I did of it so you can see how pretty all of it was!
