On February 9,  Savour Food & Wine and the Prince George Hotel are offering a night of decadence. Stay the night and indulge in the finest wines, cheeses and chocolates from all around the world. If that doesn’t say romantic then we don’t know what does!

4. Wine Tour & Romance

Book an Icewine tour with Grape Escape and visit Grand-Pré Winery. There’s nothing more romantic then getting away from the city (and drinking wine) with your special someone. Get cozy around a bonfire, go snowshoeing, enjoy a pig roast and much more!

3. La La Lobster

You’ll be sure to impress that special someone when they see this Lobster Risotto dish on Valentine’s Day. They’ll hardly believe that you had no help at all (well maybe just a little help from Taste of Nova Scotia). For dessert? Compliment this dish with The Kilted Chef‘s Red Wine Cake recipe.

2. Valentine’s at Planters Ridge
