2018 Wine Days to celebrate

Don’t you hate it when you hear about National Rose day a day too late? “I LOVE ROSE! How did I not know this!” Or suddenly you see a post on Instagram shouting “Happy white wine day!” and all you can find to celebrate is an old, half drunk cab sav in the back of the pantry?

Never be underprepared again! See below for a list of the rest of the Wine days you can celebrate this year. There seems to be some debate on whether Rose Day is in June or August, so I say; celebrate twice!

Email me if you know of any other days I can add to the list!

June:

9 June 2018 – National Rosé Day. (This date is debatable, see August 14 for more info)
21 June 2018 – Lambrusco Day.
