NATIONAL WINE DAY : FACTS , HISTORY , WHEN , WHY

We don’t usually need an “official” cause to toast a bottle of wine, but today we do: it’s National Wine Day, which is observed every year on May 25. The expanding number of wineries in the United States, combined with the explosion of social media alternatives, has resulted in more inventive methods for individuals of all (legal drinking) ages and beverage preferences to celebrate with wine. Whether you arrange a wine tasting at your home to sample the latest roses or gather friends for an evening of expertly paired food and wine, the party starts the moment the cork is popped. Cheers!
