SIP, SWIRL & SELEBRATE


Need an excuse to pop the cork and pour yourself a glass of wine to celebrate? Tomorrow, February 18th is National Drink Wine Day!

Here are some tips to celebrate this drinking holiday:
Stop by a wine bar in your area - Make a reservation if you plan on visiting during the evening because many wine bars will be packed. Look at all of the wine offerings on the menu and make sure you try something new.

Have a wine tasting party at home - Get your friends together for a low-key evening. Limit your tasting to six wines (a prosecco, two whites, and three reds). Have plenty of small bites or fresh cheeses to compliment the wine tasting. The cheese you serve with your wine is as important as what you pour, so try these combos:
• sauvignon blanc +  goat cheese
• chardonnay + camembert

• pinot noir + sottocenere
• shiraz + manchego
• malbec + piave

Create a wine inspired craft project -  we have a Pinterest collection just dedicated to wine.  The two craft projects we want to try from our pinboards are:

DIY Wine Charms















Monogrammed Wine Cork Wall Hanging


















Whatever the case and however you choose to celebrate, Happy National Drink Wine Day!
