As if we needed a reason – I strongly suggest that everyone celebrate the astonishing joy of a good glass of wine on the holiday designated to celebrate the wondrous fermented juice we call wine! Seriously though, while not a holiday on par with the 4th of July, National Drink Wine Day is worth recognizing for several reasons:
- Wine, in moderation, may have several health-improving effects
- Wine is always different and therefor always its own little adventure that connects you to a time (vintage) and a place (vineyards all over the world)
- Wine can make a good meal great – and help people enjoy each other’s company
- Wine tastes good!
I know that for me this February 18 will include a meal with my in-laws, and I’m sure there will be some sparkling wine involved – so I am set to celebrate National Drink Wine Day – – Are you????
