National Drink Wine Day

Sunday, February 18th, 2018 (all day)

This event is in the past.

Did you know that there are wineries in all 50 states, but 90% of American wine is produced in California...?  (https://www.wineinstitute.org/resources/lifestyleandtravel/article501)  ; In 2016, California had 602,000 acres of wine grapes including about 40 acres in Ventura County (CDFA/USDA 2016 Grape Acreage Crop Report).  California is the fourth largest wine producer in the world.   The industry employes 325,000 Californians and generates $57.6 billion in annual revenue. It also attracts 23.6 million tourists to our state each year, generating over $7.2 billion in tourist revenue.

There are tee shirts out there claiming that one should "Save Water. Drink Wine."  For some interesting research into that subject, you might appreciate this Sacramento Bee article:  http://www.sacbee.com/food-drink/wine/dunne-on-wine/article2622749.html

Meanwhile, moderate, responsible wine drinkers can contemplate a bevy of health benefits (including reduced risk of stroke, type 2 diabetes, heart attacks, and colon cancer) as they raise a glass to celebrate this auspicious occasion.

Salud!
