Drink Wine Day

According to the American Food Holiday website February 18th is National Drink Wine Day!

Pop the cork and enjoy some bubbly, February 18th is Drink Wine Day! The list of benefits for drinking wine is getting longer and longer by the minute. Here are just a few you can check out.  Drinking a glass of wine a day makes your heart healthy, reduces forgetfulness (I really need to drink more!), helps you lose weight, boosts your immunity, and helps prevent bone loss.

Wine has been produced for thousands of years around the world. From classical Greece and Rome to the modern day, it's no wonder why the art of making wine has been perfected over the years. Evidence of the earliest European wine production has been uncovered at archaeological sites in Macedonia, dating back over 6,500 years ago! In China, traces of crushed grapes were also found that dated from the second and first millennium BC.

Did you know that there are over 20 million acres in the world that are dedicated to growing grapes to make wine? To celebrate Drink Wine Day, be sure to check out local wineries, bars, and liquor stores in your area as many host special events for this holiday. Or what better time than tonight to host your very own wine tasting party!

So, here's a toast to you!  May you drink in good health!
