February 18 is National Drink Wine Day: How will you celebrate?


Bottoms up! Monday, February 18, is National Drink Wine Day! How will you be celebrating such a glorious day?

As much as we love food holidays (like National Pizza Day, for example), it’s time to give a beverage its time to shine. And in this case, it’s a rather tasty drink: Wine!

National Drink Wine Day is an annual celebration that takes place on February 18 across the country. This year, the big day regrettably falls on a Monday. However, let’s make the best of it anyway! If you ask me, this only gives us a reason to love Mondays!

How will you be celebrating? Will you simply be opening a bottle of your favorite wine and enjoying a relaxing evening at home or take the party to the next level? Whatever you go for, though, always remember to drink responsibly!

Some ideas are to have a small glass while at brunch or come home after work with a bottle and relax on the couch with your favorite TV show or movie. You could also meet up with co-workers or friends after you clock out and have a few drinks to start off your week on a great note.
