We’re a week away from Valentine’s Day. We don’t make a big deal about holidays like that as we have our 9 year wedding anniversary coming up in a month. How the heck did that happen? We do love to go out on the town regularly, but those nights we don’t have a babysitter, we’ll put Miss H to bed a little bit early and have a nice romantic dinner at home. Perhaps that is the secret to a happy marriage?

One of the things I always struggle with when I’m making dinner is what wine to serve with the meal. I’m a straight Chardonnay drinker, but I know that not everything goes with Chardonnay. I was so excited when I recently learned about Drink Dispatch and I was able to share with them my idea for the perfect date night in and what I wanted to prepare, and they suggested the perfect wine to accompany the meal.  That took all the stress off of me. Who knew you could buy wine online and have it shipped to you for the perfect date night in?

Drink Dispatch is a newly-launched online boutique wine experience specializing in small production, artisan wines with a focus on customer service and product education, delivering conveniently right to your doorstep (in most states). A wine for every price point and the perfect gift. Wouldn’t it be nice to just have the wine arrive at your house with no stress? My kind of shopping.

One of my all time favorite dishes is Chicken Piccata. Lemon. Capers. Heaven. It happens to be one of our favorite date night in meals. I let the experts over at Drink Dispatch know what I would be serving and they came back with a great recommendation. A 2014 Sauvignon Blanc is what they suggested and let me tell you it works perfectly with the meal. I used about a half cup in the sauce for the dish. They do say to always cook with wine you would drink. Gave it the perfect flavor.

I loved the ease of letting them know what I wanted to create and a couple of days later, a package at my doorstep. Bonus, they are local to St. Louis, so shipping was insanely quick and I love to support local companies.

    At home date nights have been more and more commonplace in our lives. We love doing new things together at home while C sleeps. And if we have a class or two too many of an adult beverage, there is no worry about who is driving.
