May is a busy month for wine lovers, but if you’re only going to celebrate one national wine holiday, don’t miss this one.
National Drink Wine Day is celebrated annually on February 18 across the United States.
The purpose of National Drink Wine Day is to spread the love and health benefits of wine. Wine has played an important role in history, religion and relationships. We embrace the positive benefits of wine such as new friends, reduced risk of heart disease and the enhancement of food and life.
No one knows how all these official wine days started, and no one seems to really care. It’s as though you can almost make up any old wine holiday nowadays — international, national, or whatever you like. Don’t like zinfandel? No problem, because Tempranillo Day is less than a week after. A fan of moscato?
There’s an official day to celebrate it. From the obscure to the historical and everything in between, we’ve put together a calendar of the most celebrated national and international wine days (and a few others) to note. If you don’t see a day you think should be recognized, why not start your own by creating a hashtag and tweeting the heck out of it? Go for it!
