One local retailer is stocked and ready for all of those last minute Valentine’s Day shoppers.

Instead of typical chocolate and flowers, a local business is gearing up for all of your Valentine’s Day needs. The Winerak offers over 500 different types of wine and also has a variety of gift baskets to make sure you find the perfect gift to give your Valentine.

"We can make baskets to order, or whatever the need may be. We do have premade baskets ready to go as well," said Chad Lynn, beverage manager of The Winerak.

Lynn said the most popular Valentine’s Day wine choice is sparkling.

"Generally speaking, the sparkling wines have more of a carbonation to them. They are still working fermentation wise in the bottle as they are filled. The regular wine does not have the bubble, it’s a much smoother wine, it’s not carbonated at all," said Lynn.

If you’re not sure on which wine to choose, you can stop into The Winerak where their employees are available to assist you in your wine selection. They are also offering sparkling wine and champagne tastings this Wednesday and Thursday from 4-6:00 p.m. for you to find the perfect bubbly for your Valentine.
