LIVERMORE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- To create the ultimate romantic Valentine's Day dinner for your sweetheart, look no further than Cupcake Vineyards' special Valentine's Day site filled with recipes, tips and tricks from a gentleman's best guide, Matt Moore. This guy's guy, author, musician, blogger, and chef teams up with Cupcake Vineyards to share how to live and love deliciously on cupid's favorite day.
"Any day of the year can be romantic, but we all know that the bar is set just a little higher on February 14," says Moore. "I'm thrilled to be working with Cupcake Vineyards to give guys some easy and great ideas on making a simple, delicious meal, not to mention setting the right mood. The most important element, of course, is having a great wine or two to accompany the evening."
"Cupcake Vineyards wines are made to be enjoyed and shared with loved ones," said winemaker Adam Richardson. "Our deep portfolio includes wines sure to suit any occasion and any meal, and we are excited about the recipes that Matt has created to complement some of our most popular wines."
Cupcake Vineyards and Moore offer a selection of menu and wine pairing ideas online, including:
- Green Pea & Portobello Mushroom Risotto with Cupcake Vineyards Angel Food
Creamy, comforting and indulgent risotto is heavenly when paired with the soft notes of toasty vanilla in Cupcake Vineyards Angel Food, a proprietary, aromatic white blend that offers flavors of baked Granny Smith apple with a creamy mouthfeel.
- Shrimp & Sea Scallop Scampi with Cupcake Vineyards Chardonnay
A classic dish of succulent seafood gets turned up a notch when paired with the buttery, creamy notes of Cupcake Vineyards Chardonnay. Full and elegant, the wine adds bright citrus and vanilla that melt into hints of oak and spice.
- Filet Mignon with Red Velvet Pan Sauce, Roasted Asparagus, Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Cupcake Vineyards Red Velvet
Over-the-top aromas of chocolate, blackberries and red fruits of Cupcake Vineyards Red Velvet combine with pan drippings from a filet mignon to create a luscious sauce which scores big. Serve the wine alongside the dish to bring out those deep, rich flavors along with a hint of mocha and coconut.
- Sweet Heat Chocolate-Covered Strawberries with Cupcake Vineyards Prosecco
Temper the heat of these decadent favorites with light and refreshing Cupcake Vineyards Prosecco. The wine's fine effervescence, creamy flavors of ripe lemon, refined citrus, and toasted brioche finish provide the perfect balance.
To make this Valentine's Day even more special, Cupcake Vineyards and Moore suggests a fresh alternative to the traditional gift of a dozen roses: give a dozen Cupcakes. Mix and match a case of 12 Cupcake Vineyards wines to present to your Valentine; go with several bottles of one or two known favorites, or create a sampler box to explore together. Either way, it's a gesture that should stay fresh long after the last rose has wilted.

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
