Why are date nights so important? Studies show that date nights bring about long-term positive impacts in relationships. Based on findings and research, date nights should be part of a couple's routines to increase intimacy and foster communication; wine just happens to help make every date night special.
These date nights don’t need to be expensive - Either cooking a simple meal or ordering food online, paired thoughtfully with the right wine is surely a great way to make your partner feel special. If you are planning a surprise but you feel a little overwhelmed with which affordable wine to pick, we’ve got you covered:
Located in the Marlborough region, the vineyards of Cloudy Bay are spread out to maximise diversity of micro-climates and soil types for their grapes. Without this, we wouldn't have their varietal benchmark Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc, which has a varied and fantastically bright selection of fruity notes, including sharp citrus, stone fruits and lemongrass. Best paired with fresh oysters, grilled seafood, or even notoriously hard-to-pair-withasparagus, this stand-out bottle is great idea for your next date night.

With its beautiful vibrant colour, it is with no doubt, the perfect rosé for your next date-slash-taco night with the bae. This elegant style of rosé expresses generous aromas of fresh strawberry and green melon with hints of hibiscus and rose petal. The rich texture is complemented with balanced acidity leading to a refreshing and supple finish.
Good together with the people & places you love.

For a garden or brunch date with your partner, the Asti Martini is perfect paired with savoury food. Cheese, salted nuts, and chips would also complement the sweetness and acidity of a bottle of Asti Martini - sweet, low-alcohol sparkling wine made from Moscato grapes grown in the vicinity of Asti. Whilst its qualities as an aperitif are well known, this can also be paired with Asian food as an alternative to less affordable wines from Alsace.

This bold, smooth, and refined drink is the perfect to pair with your favourite red meat. Layered with hints of rich blackberry, luscious caramel, and smooth toasted oak, this boldly blended California Cabernet Sauvignon is a great choice for your special steak night.
Meaty fare like steak or burgers would go perfectly with this blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Sourced from premium vineyards across South Australia, the wine is known for its full-flavoured style with excellent Shiraz and Cabernet fruit, firm yet well-rounded structure, and balanced oak.
What are you waiting for? This is the time to plan your next date night. With everything that’s been going on, it would be a good idea to show some love. Luckily for you, Boozy’s got all your wine needs!
