We asked our friends at Snooth.com for their expert opinions on the best reds, whites, pinks and bubblies for the ultimate romantic evening — check out their top picks!
If we were honest with ourselves, our wine choice would be easy, as it always is: simply serve the wine you like the best. But if you’re in need of an extra-special wine that screams “I love you,” check out these options that can complete the Valentine’s Day picture in a big way.
Whether it’s red, white, pink or bubbly, Springpad users love their wine; and, as of this month, we’ve racked up almost 100,000 wine Springs. With Springpad, you can plan properly-paired dinners, discover and save your favorites, and learn more about the wines you want to try — even organize your entire wine collection or plan your perfect dinner party.
You probably already know Springpad users love good food. We have an avid foodie community that loves all things delicious, from vegan eats to indulgent treats. What you may not know, however, is that Springpad also has a passionate wine community creating notebooks of favorite wines, vineyard vacations and recipes for wine lovers.
We’re excited to announce a new partnership with Snooth, one of the world’s leading online wine communities, that will make Springpad even more awesome for saving and sharing your favorite recipes and wines!
Springpad has partnered with Gary Vaynerchuk of Wine Library TV to offer you the chance to win one of the ten bottles of wine that he’s giving away! From now until June 30th, simply save the wine you’d like to win and you will be entered into the giveaway.
And if you’re a Vayniac, follow Gary in Springpad to see what wines he’s been saving, and what he recommends. Check out this post to learn more about how to find other people to follow in Springpad.
It’s finally here! We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the Springpad iPhone App – the newest way to save and access all of the information you want to remember.
How it works:
- When you want to remember something you come across, just save it in Springpad – products, restaurants, or books that seem interesting, wines you try at a party, things your friends recommend, or even random thoughts.
- We automatically organize and enhance what you save with useful information like directions, reviews, showtimes, menus, price comparisons, and links to make purchases and reservations.
- When you need it, it’s there for you – on your iPhone and on the web at Springpadit.com.
Over the last week, we have given many suggestions for Valentine’s Day recipes, but what romantic meal would be complete without a good bottle of wine? For Day 8 of ‘Ten Days of Valentine’s Day,’ Gary Vaynerchuk of Wine Library has compiled a list of his recommended Valentine’s Day wines to round out your meal and create an evening to remember.
Richard Heene, father of the “Balloon Boy,” floated to the Laramie County Detention Center this week to begin his 90-day jail sentence. Heene, along with his wife Mayumi, infamously and falsely claimed last October that their 6-year old son Falcon was trapped in a “flying-saucer” balloon which had come untethered from their Colorado home. Here’s a few suggestions on how Springpad can help him land back into society as an organized, repented man following his traumatic 90 day stint behind bars.
He’s a contemporary entrepreneur and a marketing machine who – within the last two weeks – has successfully launched two new businesses (Cinderella Wine and Gourmet Library) and just released his first book…and he’s a springpad partner. Gary has integrated his popular winelibrary.tv daily video blog with springpad to let his viewers collect, share and use the wines he reviews. He’s also created a Wine Notebook springpad app that makes it easy to store wine picks, search friends’ wines and get recommendations from Gary.
Why springpad? In his words:
I’m a big believer in springpad’s vision that content from publishers and brands can be made even more useful to help people organize their lives, get things done and share their knowledge. When I saw what springpad could do I loved the fact that my viewers could do ANYTHING THEY wanted to do with the data not what I might have thought they wanted, I quickly and easily integrated my winelibrary.tv site with springpad and created several springpad apps, including a Wine Notebook and Thunder List.
With one simple “Save” button on his site, Gary gives his viewers the opportunity to collect, organize, personalize, share and use his wine reviews and recommendations as they see fit. At the same time, he’s extending the reach of his brand and creating new business opportunities for winelibrary.tv long after viewers leave his site.
