You might’ve thought today was just another boring Monday but you would definitely be wrong – today, February 18th, is National Drink Wine Day!
Ok ok, it’s an American celebration but that doesn’t mean that we can’t join in on the fun, pop some corks and sip on a fine glass of fruity vino.
Wine makes for a fun filled day out and is sometimes the best remedy for a stressful day. Drinking a glass of red wine is even recommended by some doctors. We at Red Letter Days have a whole host of wine tasting experiences entirely dedicated to drinking, tasting and matching food to wine – so why not schedule a special day dedicated to relaxing and enjoying one of the finer things in life?
