Banks Will Be Open, But Still...

Today is National Drink Wine Day (Wednesday, February 18th). Whether you prefer a quiet dignified observance at home with family, or a big blowout with friends at your favorite wine bar, we hope you’ll keep us (Noble Pig) in mind.
No one is quite sure about the origins of National Drink Wine Day, but it’s been around for a while. This year, National Drink Wine Day and President’s Day have a Tuesday wedged between them, but many years the two fall on the same day. Maybe that’s got something to do with it. Students of history might think so, if you look at the beverage habits of certain American Presidents -- from John Adams, who lamented the price point of wines in Boston in 1777, to Franklin Roosevelt, who followed his doctor’s orders to gain weight by upping his intake of smart eggnog. In any case, it seems like if there’s going to be a holiday anywhere near National Drink Wine Day, it should fall on the day after.
Come share a little of National Drink Wine Day 2015 with us at the Noble Pig Tasting Room in Carlton. We hope to see you here!
