Grab your favorite wine drinking buddy and start making plans because May 25th is National Wine Day (a personal favorite holiday of ours here at BREWPUBLIK, of course)! We’ve put together a few ideas to help you celebrate this glorious day, arriving just in time for the long holiday weekend:
Try Something New
Take a break from your favorite go-to wine and spice things up with something you’ve never tried before – a totally new style, a new brand, or at least just a new dish to pair a glass with. Our palettes tend to change over the course of time, so it always worth giving that bone-dry Bordeaux that you swore off a few years ago a second chance. Who knows, you just might find a new favorite to fall in love with!
Enjoy Mother Nature
It’s no coincidence that National Wine Day falls at the end of May, one of the nicest times of the year – so make sure to get outside and celebrate with some sunshine and Mother Nature. Whether you’re at the park or sitting poolside, keep in mind that many outdoor spots may be glass-unfriendly. But don’t worry, we’ve got the perfect solution for you: Check out the collection of craft canned wine by Nomadica – there’s no bottles here, making it super easy to grab and bring along on your National Wine Day adventure…not to mention, the stunningly artistic labels just scream “get outside!”
Cheers to the Weekend
This year, National Wine Day conveniently falls on a Friday which gives us all the more reason to celebrate all weekend long – so why not pull out all the spots and throw a party?! The great thing about wine is that’s its versatile enough to be appropriate for all types events – everything from outdoor barbeques to lavish corporate events. Psst… If you’re located in Charleston, Charlotte, Raleigh or the Bay Area, BREWPUBLIK is ready to help with your special event, including everything from planning and delivery to set-up and takedown. Our selection of wines will not only be a crowd-pleaser, but we’ll handle everything so that you can enjoy the party yourself too!
If you’re a true wine lover, you probably have a collection of corks laying around anyway – so why not whip out the hot glue gun and put them to good use? Pinterest has an endless supply of inspiration for wine-related projects, including DIY vases, coasters and tons of home décor ideas. Or, if you happen to be good at woodworking, you can even take the crafting up a notch and try to make your own wine rack. Many of these homemade crafts also make for great personalized gifts for the wine lovers in your life, and we promise Mom won’t mind a belated Mother’s Day Gift.
Go Wine Tasting
There’s nothing better than spending a beautiful afternoon at the vineyards – especially on National Wine Day! Map out a course of two or three local wineries you haven’t tried yet, and don’t forget to pack a cooler full of cheese, crackers and other tasty snacks. Tastings are a great way to try new styles of wines, often while learning about the wine-making process itself too. Don’t have a winery nearby? Invite some friends over and host a mini-tasting yourself instead!
