National Wine Day
About National Wine Day
When is National Wine Day? This day is always celebrated on May 25
Put away the whiskey and rye. Instead, tap the wine keg. Crack open a bottle and enjoy the fruit of the vine at its’ finest. Today is National Wine Day. Certainly, this May 25 holiday is a relaxing and enjoyable event. Don’t chug-a-lug your wine. Rather, wine is most pleasant when sipped and consumed slowly. Savor every drop.
People have been drinking wine since the early days of men (and women). There are plenty of references to wine in the Bible. Wine has thankfully been around for thousands of years.
There are many varieties of grapes, allowing us to make and enjoy, hundreds of different varieties of wines. Made from fermented grapes, wine is easy to make. As a result, there are many home vintners among us.
While you don’t have to drink wine today to celebrate this day, abstaining is certainly would not as much fun.
