Raise your glasses and uncork your bottles on Friday, National Wine Day is here!
Not to be confused with National Drink Wine Day on February 18, National Wine Day falls on May 25 each year. That’s right, one day a year is not enough for us wine lovers to celebrate our favorite drink.
Official wine day or days are not that official at all. They are usually the result of movements started by a variety of individuals with passion for this wonderful beverage. National Wine Day became a thing around 2009, since then, it has been popping up in the calendar of any serious wine lover.
If you missed its sister holiday in February, pour a glass of your favorite wine and get ready for this next Friday.
