We all know that wine pairs wonderfully with chocolate, fruit, and a lot of other things that taste delicious. But have you ever thought about pairing wine with flowers? The scents, colors, and texture of certain flowers perfectly complement a bottle of wine. And, when combined, the two make a splendid, personalized housewarming, anniversary, or birthday gift.
