14 February 2014: Romantics seeking a sweetheart to spoil them this Valentine’s Day may find themselves extra lucky in love if their perfect match is from one of the most romantic areas in the country.

The most passionate partners in each state have been identified through sales of sparkling wine and Champagne in the lead up to Valentine’s Day this year.

Biggest spenders on Valentine’s Day bubbles are:

  • New South Wales  -  Alexandria
  • Queensland  -  Wooloongabba
  • Victoria  -  Brighton
  • South Australia  - Marion
  • Western Australia  -  Hyde Park

In the week leading up to Valentine’s Day last year, sparkling wine and Champagne sales increased by 18 per cent in comparison to normal trading weeks. Campbell Stott, Head of Merchandise at Dan Murphy’s, is expecting to see another rise in sales this year.

“Sparkling wine and Champagne are always popular choices for celebratory events, and Valentine’s Day is becoming an increasingly popular day for couples to crack open a bottle of bubbles.”

“This year Dan Murphy’s is predicting sparkling wine and Champagne sales to rise by 15 per cent compared to 2013 as couples start to replace going out to restaurants on Valentine’s Day with cooking up their own romantic feasts, complete with bubbles,” he says.

Whilst some Valentine’s Day budgets might be small, Dan Murphy’s has a range of quality sparkling wines and Champagnes to suit all price points.

Be it a candlelit dinner, a picnic for two or a night on the couch, Dan Murphy’s reveals some top bubbles to share this Valentine’s Day:
