If you’re anything like me, every day might feel like it’s a wine holiday. But in terms of the national calendar, National Wine Day falls officially on May 25, 2018. If you personally choose to celebrate the holiday in an on-going fashion, there’s no shame in that — but at the very least, don’t forget to use the excuse to celebrate your fave vino with with some National Wine Day deals. Wine can be expensive, especially if you like the good stuff. So you’ll want to take full advantage of any and all holiday-related sale prices or deals while they’re running. Stock up on wine at the stores that are running sales so that you can keep the celebration going through Memorial Day weekend. Or, head to one of the restaurants or bars that are offering wine specials and use it as a great excuse to get together with friends for a cheap night out.
Whatever you do, make sure you kick back with a glass (or two) of your favorite wine, and enjoy the gift of a wine buzz at the end of a long day. Yes, wine deserves a moment of appreciation. I think we can all agree there aren’t enough days in the year to show wine just how much we care. Anyway, while we try to figure out how to best express our gratitude for the grape from the gods, here are a few National Wine Day deals that you’re not going to to want to miss out on.
