Shepparton News - Country News - - FRONT PAGE -

If you’re look­ing to cel­e­brate Valentine’s Day with an ex­cel­lent lo­cal wine, Lon­gleat Wine has a cou­ple of sug­ges­tions for ev­ery wine lover.

Owner Guido Vaz­zoler said wine, in particular the la­bel’s Brut Cu­vee, was al­ways a pop­u­lar choice.

‘‘Right through­out the fes­tive sea­son, up un­til Easter, bub­bles are very pop­u­lar,’’ he said.

If bub­bles aren’t to your lik­ing, the win­ery also car­ries some more un­com­mon wines, pro­vid­ing a dif­fer­ent op­tion for a loved one.

‘‘Our new Ital­ian va­ri­ety Gar­ganega is quite un­com­mon, but has been very well re­ceived and very pop­u­lar,’’ Mr Vaz­zoler said.

The win­ery, which car­ries sev­eral dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties in­clud­ing Ragaz­zone, Rose, Shi­raz and Caber­net Sau­vi­gnon, also of­fers gift boxes for those who can’t set­tle on just one bot­tle of wine.

‘‘Most peo­ple tend to mix it up, get­ting both whites and reds, but there’s no rules of course,’’ Mr Vaz­zoler said.

Valentine wine . . . Lon­gleat Wines, owned by Guido and San­dra Vaz­zoler, has gift boxes on of­fer for those look­ing for a spe­cial Valentine’s Day sur­prise.
