Happy National Drink Wine Day!

So Keith has been after me to start investigating food holidays as a way to deal with the occasional writer's block, lack of inspiration or even as a spark to help get me batch writing. First off, I had heard of various national "bacon" days or whatever, but I didn't realize they were called holidays.  Secondly, I had no idea there were so many of these holidays.  Finally, I researched all of this on a marvelous website called Foodimentary.  I have followed Foodimentary for some time on Twitter but hadn't delved into their site before.  Foodimentary is a wealth of information on everything edible and in addition to a full calendar of food holidays, they have a plethora of food-related quotes as well.

Today, as a matter of fact, just happened to be National Drink Wine Day. What fortuitous timing!  So with a glass poured of one of my recent favorites; a South African Cape Root Cabernet Sauvignon, I raise my glass to Foodimentary....and National Drink Wine Day!
