Lakes and Grapes Valentine's Date Ideas

Lakes and Grapes Valentine's Date Ideas


 Author: Brooke Bostwick 

There’s no better way to spend Valentine’s Day than without a little bit of Lakes and Grapes. Whether you’re spending the day with friends, family, as a couple, or single with your friends, spread your love the L&G way. For the wine lovers, lake lovers, and adventure lovers, there’s something for you to do.

Looking for some ideas? I’ve got you covered! Here are a few things to do and what to wear:

Spend the Day Outdoors


Go on a Hike!

Get out and explore! Spending the day outdoors is a perfect date for you and your Valentine. Looking for trails in your area? Look some up on Google or use the app Alltrails and find somewhere new. Unplug and get some fresh air with the ones you love. Take your adventure lover outside and get moving!  Rock the Lakes and Grapes Classic Hoodie and stay warm while you adventure.


Go on a Ski Date

    With only a few weeks left of winter, you can make the best of it by hitting the slopes! Going skiing/snowboarding as a date is all about having fun and getting outside. Take some time to talk and have lunch by the fire! Having fun? Keep the date going and grab drinks at a local bar or winery. One thing that I love most about Lakes and Grapes is how I can wear anything straight from an adventure to a winery or happy hour.  


    Grab a Drink & App at a Local Brewery or Winery

    Valentine's Day weekend is all about bringing people together, enjoying the outdoors, discovering new places and indulging in the local wine, cider and beer scene.  Whether you live in a cold or warm climate during the winter months, there's plenty of wineries, breweries, and restaurants that have outdoor seating to accommodate you. This is a great way to take in the outdoor views and support a local business, all while enjoying the company of your loved ones.

    Opt to Stay In

    Cook Together and Enjoy Dinner and Wine at Home

    Cook your favorite recipe and pair it with a bottle of wine. Most importantly,  don't forget the dessert! Bring it all together while wearing your Vineyard Tee at home. You could never go wrong with a candlelit dinner, dessert, and wine.


    Pickup Local Takeout for a Date Night In

    Not in the mood to show off your cooking skills? Treat your Valentine to take-out from their favorite restaurant. You can spread your love even more by supporting a local restaurant and winery when you order out. Keeping the date at home gives you more time to relax and enjoy a romantic evening at home. 


    Take it from day to night with games, movies, and more!

    Not only is it Valentine’s Day but it’s also Sunday Funday. Grab a glass, pour your drink, and relax. Break out the card games and make a day of it! Netflix and Game Night is a fun way to make the most of staying in with your Valentine.
