LVE Sparkling Rosé for Valentine’s Day

Hi wine friends…and Happy #WineWednesday! Today,  I taste and review the LVE Sparkling Rosé, which is a $20 French sparkling wine, to see if it would be a good option for celebrating Valentine’s Day.  LVE Wines are a collaboration between singer/songwriter John Legend and Raymond Vineyards. Cheers!   🍷

Here is my video of the 2014 LVE Cabernet Sauvignon, which was an $85 red wine from California and which I received as part of my Gary Vee Wine Club when I was still a member.

Next week, I’ll be celebrating my 12-year blogiversary with a 2019 Francis Ford Coppola Diamond Collection Pinot Noir.  Grab a bottle and join me!

My sweater is the Victor Alfaro Collective Heart Graphic Sweater from Rent the Runway.

Questions of the Day:

  1. Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?  If so, what do you have on tap and does it include wine?
  2. Have you tried any of the LVE Wines?  What did you think?
