I might be the worst wine writer out there since I rarely acknowledge wine holidays. Yes, there is a day each month dedicated to celebrating a different wine and its grape. For me, every day is a celebration of wine. 😜

Buuuuut, since I’ve been asked to start showcasing different wines on their designated holiday I thought it was about time I made a list. One I could refer back to. That said, you get to have access to it now too!

If I’ve missed any wine holidays on this list, let me know in the comments. Cheers!
