It’s almost our favorite day of the year! May 25th is National Wine Day (not to be confused with February 18th – National Drink Wine Day. Apparently we weren’t the only ones who thought wine deserved multiple holidays). Follow our tips for properly celebrating, and make it your best day yet:

This is the perfect day to indulge in your go-to bottle, or try something totally new! If you’re looking to make every day National Wine Day – see below. We got you a little something off your first Bright Cellars personalized wine experience.

Wine isn’t just for the aristocrats anymore. Whether you’re sipping out of crystal flutes or prefer the red solo cup approach, we salute you. Grab your fave glass, fill it to the brim, and raise it for a toast! Just remember to care for your precious wine glasses.
Mix it up.
White wine spritzers, kalimotxos, mid-morning mimosas…yes please. Here’s a list of our 9 favorite wine cocktails that are perfect for the upcoming summer.
Host an at-home wine tasting.
Nothing beats getting your friends together for some bonding over beverages.
