Woo Hoo! February 19 has been designated National Drink Wine Day!

wine kitty

Many of our local wineries have been holding tastings at their shops & out at the local liquor stores with samples of their fare.

 

Some even have sales while their stock lasts, so now is the time to get your favourites so you can enjoy them tomorrow!

 

I made sure I have appropriate glasses; buying six new crystal bowls! (only 4 fit on my shelf tho...)

Now to go out & find some faves to sample! I'm very fortunate to live in the Okanagan; Napa of the North, there's even a wine tour called that!!

My friend David also runs afun wine tasting tour as the Barefoot Sommelier when he's not baking bread for Barefoot Bread!

 

 

Our local association of wineries in Summerland, BC, is called Bottle Neck Drive & I can even walk to a few of them.

 

Have a great day figuring out what you want to have!

Will it be red or white? Oh well, if you can't decide, might as well have them both.

Agreed Les & Sarah! The wonderful thing about being surrounded by so many great vineyards is; one can pick & choose favourites of all the varieties while supporting locals!

If the weather is nice enough tomorrow, I might have to drive out to one of the wineries in the mountains and enjoy a glass while taking in the views.

Great idea Chris Ann!

The only thing better than a drive in fine weather to go wine tasting is a drive to a winery in fine weather with the rag top down!

Right?!

Before this, I thought any day ending with a 'Y' was a drink wine day, Sharon!

OK Peg like you wine drinkers need a special day to drink wine. Me thinks NOT. Enjoy whenever the mood strikes.

Yes it seems all my online buds drink wine except me so that makes me the odd woman out. No surprise there.

I do and I figure why drink if I don't enjoy it just to fit in.
