National Wine Day

Featured

National Wine Day is celebrated annually on May 25.

Each year, on this day, people enjoy a glass of their favorite wine with dinner, for dessert, with friends, at a restaurant, at home or at a wine-tasting event. The wine has a rich history dating back thousands of years!  (There is also a separate, yet similar, National Wine Day which is celebrated each year in February).

We are celebrating National Wine Day by sharing some of the Wines we tasted and Vineyards visited while traveling in Northern California’s Wine Country.
