Sparkling Winery Designs Modern Ideas For Celebrating Valentine’s Day
Chandon has created a fun and flirty microsite for lovers seeking creative inspiration and more for their Valentines celebrations. Chandon offers original ideas and suggested cocktail and meal recipes, as well as helpful hints on ways to charm and enchant your love throughout the day.
Taking inspiration from the original God of Love, Chandon is affectionately known as “What Would Cupid Do?” and offers creative Valentines suggestions in addition to the reliable but expected dinner out. The site has ideas based on the time of day you will be celebrating Valentines Day and geo-targets suggestions based on your zip code location. Chandon is viewable on iPhones and iPads. It offers great ways to captivate your loved one, such as suprising your sweetie with bubbles in bed, or starting your day with dessert and creating a romantic déjà vu by recreating your very first date.
And for the traditional Valentine’s day dinner, there is a “Dine with Chandon” section, which recommends local restaurants that serve Chandon (with a link to make a reservation).
For a romantic cocktail to sweeten up your Valentine, Chandon suggests the Love Potion.
