National Drink Wine Day

It seems that now there is a day for everything. In fact, there are more events than there are days in the year, and today is National Drink Wine Day, as if we need a designated day to consume the fruit of the vine.

We're Ready
If you don't get to celebrate today, however, you still have 19 more chances. There is at least one official wine day each month except January. I don't know what January did wrong, but I didn't find a single day devoted to wine. All right wine lovers, I guess we'll have to make one up.

Check these out...there is something for everyone!

February 25 Open That Bottle Night
March 3 National Mulled Wine Day
April 17 World Malbec Day
April 24 Sauvignon Blanc Day
May 9 National Moscato Day
May 25 National Wine Day
May 26 National Chardonnay Day
June 21 Lambrusco Day
July 15 National Strawberry Rhubarb Wine Day
August 1 International Albarino Day
August 14 International Rose Day
August 31 International Cabernet Day
September 15 International Grenache Day
October 20 National Champagne Day
November 7 International Merlot Day
November 9 International Tempranillo Day
November 16 Beaujolais Nouveau Day
December 4 Cabernet Franc Day
December 20 Sangria Day

January does get recognition with regard to the consumption of adult beverages. January 1st is National Hangover Day. 😡

In addition to drinking wine today, it is also Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, World Whale Day, Pluto Day, Battery Day and World Pangolin Day (click to see what a Pangolin is, if you're like me and didn't know).

  1. Hi Linda - you could add 13th January - annual birthday drink for Hilary day?! But I'll stick to having a glass when I feel like it ... but am always happy to have an extra excuse ... masses of days! Cheers and enjoy whichever day you're celebrating! Happy weekend - Hilary

    1. Okay, we have one entry. We never need an excuse, but it's fun nevertheless. Cheers to you!

  2. Sorry, I am so late reading your post. I have been out of town this week and now have a lot of catching up to do.

    As for holidays devoted to wine...I am allergic to wine but I would totally be willing to eat ice cream for breakfast as a substitute.
