I found this wine label so whimsical and appealing when my husband brought it home from the grocery store, just for Valentine’s Day, or so I thought. But apparently this wine is omnipresent in shops in February, so I suppose he picked it from a huge display of Saint Amour wines without thinking of February 14th. He simply said “it’s a perfectly good Beaujolais”.

Originally, Saint Amour was a Roman soldier who escaped death in Switzerland, converted to Christianity and founded a monastery. He was later canonized as St Amour. The feast day is August 9th.

The wine is from the north of the Beaujolais region, which is not too far north of Lyon, where we live. So, anyway we’ll be drinking an appropriately-named wine on Valentine’s Day (evening), intentionally or not.
