Wine & Kisses Valentine’s Wine Box by Sip & Savor: Bottom Line
We LOVE this adorable Wine & Kisses Valentine’s Wine Box by Sip & Savor. Not only does the packaging scream love and Valentine’s Day, but the wine tastes good. My favorite is the Cabernet Sauvignon as I enjoy a more full-bodied red followed closely by the Red Blend and Pinot Noir. The Rose is a wonderful addition to the red wine in this box as it is lighter and sweeter than the others.
And while this wine isn’t the fanciest, it surely is the most fun! Enjoy it with loved ones or send it as a gift to spread the love this Valentine’s Day. SHOP NOW >>

Valentine’s Day History
How did Valentine’s day start? Was it always a day for love and admiration? Not quite…
There are actually a few different versions of how Valentine’s Day came to be. The first account begins with the Roman festival of Lupercalia which was held in February. The main reason for the festival was to celebrate the coming of spring. However, this also included a lottery that paired men and women together. Not so romantic! At the end of the 5th century, Pope Gelasius I replace the festival of Lupercalia with St. Valentine’s Day and declared it a day of romance.
A different version of Valentine’s Day history claims that St. Valentine of Terni defied the emperor’s orders of sending men into war. He would marry couples in order to help spare the men from going to war, as married men did not need to fight. Love wins!
Formal Valentine’s messages first appeared in the 1500s and by the mid-1800s, Valentine’s cards were being printed in mass. Valentine’s cards often had an image of cupid, the Roman god of love. Bird also became a common symbol on Valentine’s Day cards wince February happened to be avian mating season. Flowers, candy, and roses became a part of Valentine’s Day as symbols of love and beauty.
Many countries celebrate Valentine’s Day including the United States. Canada, Australia, Mexica, France, and even South Korea. Everyone loves to celebrate love! While everyone may participate in Valentine’s Day differently, the sentiment is the same regardless of where you live.
