Why not have a glass today?

Each and every May 25 is recognized as National Wine Day. A savory Saturday awaits for those willing to indulge.

Indulging nothing new

Wine has existed for at least 9,000 years. Historians say the first vineyards appeared in the Middle East and spread through the Mediterranean region from there.

Grapes in great number

It takes about one cluster of grapes to produce a glass of wine. There are about 75 to 100 grapes per cluster.
