Annually, February 18th is National Drink Wine Day in the United States. It is, also, Global Drink Wine Day according to travellingcorkscrew.com.au and winecountry.com. As someone who enjoys the taste of wine, especially a lovely red blend or malbec, I plan to partake in this celebration. It’s my eldest daughter’s birthday, to boot – all good things!
The purpose of this observance is not to become intoxicated. Instead, it is about awareness – learning the health benefits of wine and the history of its use and purpose throughout history. Afterall, it has been a vital part of religion and relationships since the dawn of time. And the health benefits include reducing heart disease. As I said – all good things!
