Lula Wine and Recipes to Fall in Love With This Valentine’s Day
We all know how much Valentine’s Day revolves around treats—sweetheart candies, chocolate Hershey’s kisses, and boxes of delectable truffles are just a few we all know and love. But what commonly gets overlooked are the mouth-watering meals that tend to accompany this celebratory night of love.
If we’ve learned anything from the past few years of COVID-19, it’s how capable we can be in the comfort of our own home, so naturally, we felt inspired to whip out our own pots and pans this Valentine’s Day and bring you some foodie-love to enjoy on February 14th.
So grab your loved one, grab a spatula, and pour your heart into these wine and recipe pairings perfect for all your romantic endeavors.
