The Origin of Global Drink Wine Day
Global Drink Wine Day is fairly recent; it was inspired by the United States National Drink Wine Day. Apparently, wine lover Todd McCalla created National Drink Wine Day in 2011 to “spread the love and health benefits of wine.” In 2016, Australian wine enthusiast and blogger Casey Bryan created Global Drink Wine Day with the same purpose. The holiday became an international phenomenon.
Shouldn’t wine be celebrated globally? Of course, it should, and you can observe this delicious day too, ideally by taking one of our private winery tours to Yarra Valley — an extraordinary excursion from Melbourne.
