National Drink Wine Day: Friday Never Looked So Good!

National Drink Wine Day is today! Known throughout the nation to all wine enthusiasts, February 18 is the day to indulge in a marvelous glass (or bottle) of any wine!

Wine has been enjoyed the world over for thousands of years; archaeologists have even uncovered evidence of wine production in Macedonia dating back to as early as 6,500 years ago!

According to online sources, currently over 20 million acres are dedicated to grape harvesting and wine making all over the world.

And although it is always wise to refrain from excessive drink of any alcohol due to the harmful effects it can engender on the body, sources report that drinking wine in moderation can produce many positive health effects:

A glass of wine a day has been shown to improve heart health, reduce forgetfulness, help you lose weight, boost your immunity, and help prevent bone loss.

So pop that cork and clink those wine glasses because today is National Drink Wine Day! Cheers!
