2022 Wine Days and Months

Did you know there are about 40 dedicated days/months to celebrate wine in 2022? Not that we exactly need designated dates to drink wine, but this makes it feel more official and acceptable, right? Mark your calendars for the following dates.

January

Seems the trend these days for many is to start the year with “dry” January, which may explain the lack of national wine days this month. But for those who think life’s too short to keep those bottles sealed, make it your freestyle month and pick whatever days you want!
