Happy National Wine Day!
National Wine Day is May 25!!
I must admit, I'm not a huge wine drinker, but I will partake from time to time.
The exact origin of National Wine Day is unknown, but it became more widely celebrated around 2009.
California is the biggest wine-producing state in the USA. In 1974 there were just 25 wineries in California, now there are over 800!
Nationwide there are, on average, at least three wineries in every state. Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina is the most visited winery in America with over one million people annually.
Even though, I'm not a huge wine connoisseur, I know wine is a pretty big deal to most Americans.
In fact, did you know, that Americans drink an average of four glasses of wine a week. Also, in a 2019 survey, the main reason someone won't have a glass of wine after work is because they don't want to open a new bottle. I'm guessing that's because if you open a new one, then you feel like you have to finish it. Mama didn't raise no quitter.
In that same survey, three out of four people said home was their favorite place to drink wine. And this might be blasphemy to some, but the average person throws out three partially-full bottles of wine after hosting a party. How dare you?!
Also, there have been personality traits linked to your preference of red or white wine. I prefer white, but mostly just because it doesn't stain your teeth. And, I like it sweet. The cheaper the better! (I am not fancy.)
Red wine drinkers, listen up, this is you:
- More likely to be a “wine aficionado”
- Early bird
- Prefer dogs to cats
- Listen to jazz music
- More likely to identify as adventurous, humble and organized
- Willing to spend slightly more per bottle ($40)
Where all my white wine people at? Holla!
- Less likely to be a “wine aficionado”
- Night owl
- Prefer cats to dogs
- Listen to punk music
- More likely to identify as identify as curious, sarcastic and perfectionists
- Willing to spend slightly less per bottle ($37)
Cheers! Celebrate responsibly!
