When is the National Wine Day this Year?

We don’t usually need an “official” reason to celebrate with a bottle of wine, but today we do: it’s National Wine Day, which is observed annually on May 25. The growing number of wineries in the United States, combined with the proliferation of social media options, has resulted in more creative ways for people of all (legal drinking) ages and beverage preferences to celebrate with wine. Whether you host a wine tasting at your home to sample the latest rosés or get together with friends for an evening of expertly paired food and wine, the celebration begins the moment the cork is popped. Cheers!

History of Wine Day

Humans have been drinking wine for thousands of years. This drink is popular not only because it tastes great, but also because of its nutritional value and psychotropic effects, also there are many types of wine. Wine has also had a significant impact on the economy and social development. The trade of wine, more than any other alcoholic beverage, enabled the exploration of different cultures and paved the way for philosophical and religious ideas to spread. Wine is mentioned frequently in the “Bible,” from Noah to Jesus, indicating its importance. Wine-making was also regarded as a sign of a prosperous economy, as only prosperous societies could support a well-established wine industry. Indeed, it is frequently argued that the foundations of Western society were built on wine.

The wine consumed in the past is a distant relative of the wine consumed today. Egyptians made the drink with red, pink, green, white, and blue grapes. Palm dates, figs, and pomegranates were frequently included in the mix as well. As a result, the flavor was completely different from what we were used to. Using different fruits to make wine is similar to using grapes, except that sugar is added to aid the fermentation process. The exact origins of National Wine Day are unknown, but the first mentions of it date back to 2009. It is a day when wine lovers come together to celebrate our favorite fermented fruit juice.

California’s wine country in the northern Bay Area of northern California has dominated American wine production and our personal vision of the elegant American vineyard since its establishment in 1812 by Spanish missionaries. In 1974, there were only 25 wineries in this part of California. There are now over 800! While California remains the leader in wine production in the United States, with over 4,000 wineries in the state, wineries can be found in every state, with at least three in each. In fact, the most visited winery today is the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, which receives over one million visitors per year.

Because of the availability of wineries, we can now visit the rolling hills of a beautiful vineyard closer to home. Yes, there’s a good chance one is nearby, within driving distance for a fun day trip or weekend getaway. So, pack your bags and direct your GPS to the nearest winery!

Why do we like National Wine Day?

  • While there are only five basic types of wine (red, white, rose, sparkling, and dessert), there are thousands of wine grape varietals. The possibilities for trying a new wine are practically limitless. You’ll never get bored trying something new in the wine world.
  • Wine is not a drink to be consumed quickly. You take a sip, savor it, and linger over it. That means you’re probably lingering with whoever you’re drinking wine with. Taking your time with a glass of wine allows you to enjoy other aspects of it, such as people, scenery, and food.
  • Wine allows you to take a trip around the world in a bottle. Each bottle of wine has its own story to tell. Close your eyes and the aromas and flavors of wine can transport you to faraway lands, providing clues about the soil and weather the grapes grew in, the landscape of the country the wine originated in, and what was going on in the world at the time the wine was bottled. The best part? You don’t even have to get on a plane to travel the world!
