Sip Into Summer: Holidays to Celebrate in May
With warmer weather comes more opportunities to celebrate important May holidays in the springtime sun with our loved ones—all while safely socially distanced, of course. This year, there are several celebration-worthy holidays during the month of May, including Mother's Day, National Wine Day, and Memorial Day. We've pulled together some celebration ideas to help you welcome summer and create a party fit for every wine-lover in your life—including you!
Moscato on Mother's Day
This year, Mother's Day happens to fall on World Moscato Day! Show Mom the very best of Italian wine with the gift of Moscato. According to the Days of the Year website, Moscato wine is made from the Moscato Blanco grape, one of the oldest varieties to come out of Italy. This party favorite wine comes in a variety of flavors for every palette, including light, dry, sweet or sparkling, and is sure to make Mom smile when she uncorks this fantastic gift on her special day. To make it extra special, try adding some Italian-inspired appetizers, such as a fresh Caprese salad, a Charcuterie board, or a handmade margherita pizza.
National Wine Day
Did you know that wine has its very own national holiday? This year, pour on the fun with your nearest and dearest to celebrate National Wine Day, which falls on May 25th every year, according to the National Days website. If you're feeling up for a small celebration, try planning a small, socially-distanced gathering with fellow wine lovers for a wine tasting party in the sunshine. Don't forget to use the #NationalWineDay tag on social media to show your appreciation for this versatile and beloved beverage.
Nothing says summer quite like Memorial Day. This holiday kicks off the warm and sunny months and leaves us all thirsting for the perfect drink to beat the heat. This Memorial Day, celebrate with a glass of something light and refreshing, like a crisp sip of chilled Rosé, or celebration-enhancing bubbly. These wines make a perfect pairing with swimsuits, sun hats, and a three-day weekend spent celebrating with friends and family.
