National Drink Wine Day
Date When Celebrated : Always February 18
Now here's a day we all can enjoy, assuming you are 21 or older, of course.
Today is National Drink Wine Day. Go down to the wine cellar, or the nearest liquor store, and select a very fine wine. Or, go rent a limo and go on a winery tour.
We all know that apples were the first fruit, in the garden of Eden. Grapes were most likely there, too. It was probably soon after, that wine was discovered. This author envisions an early Cave Man, finding some grapes that he had stored in his cave. His kids had accidentally stomped on them some time before, while playing in the cave. Food was scarce back then. Our Cave Man drank the juice lying in a puddle on the shelf, and the rest is history!
Did You Know? Wine bottles have been discovered dating back to 325A.D.
Pour a glass of wine and let's toast to National Drink Wine Day!
Important: Please drink responsibly. And, if you do drink, don't drive.
Origin and History of National Drink Wine Day:
We found little historical information on the origin of this day. It's creator is anonymous. It is very likely that a few ladies were relaxing and enjoying some fine wine one evening, and conceived this holiday. We are so thankful that they did.
This day is called a "National" day. We did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.
