Hello, wine lovers! We hope your glasses are empty and your corkscrews at the ready, because National Red Wine Day is a day of superb sipping that you don’t want to miss. We've found it cropping up in online chatter like a juicy Cabernet sauvignon at a dinner party. On 28 Aug 2020, more people than ever were clinking glasses (or more likely, sending wine glass emojis) to celebrate this glorious grape goodness.
It's national red wine day on the 28th August.
It's not clear who first had the genius idea to dedicate an entire 24 hours to celebrating red wine, but whoever they were, we'd certainly like to buy them a bottle. Red wine’s history alone is worthy of a toast; it's been around for a whopping 7,000-8,000 years and has been enjoyed everywhere from ancient Egypt to the Roman Empire. But it's only in the internet age that National Red Wine Day really began to froth with life.
In internet history, National Red Wine Day started appearing in tweets, posts, and statuses in the early 2010s, and it's been fermenting nicely ever since. On 28 August 2020, it reached its vintage point with 5623 mentions across the web. It seems like folks swapped their usual summer rosé for a deep, full-bodied red and what a party that must have been!
Now, how does one celebrate it? Thankfully, the rules are not complex. It's not like making a soufflé or mastering the violin. The steps are simple: 1) Open bottle, 2) Pour wine, 3) Sip and enjoy. Whether you prefer a light Pinot Noir or a spicy Shiraz, remember that a shared bottle of wine is happiness tasted and time well spent.
