HAPPY: National Drink Wine Day!

A tile illustration of the Virgin of Wine, a mural found in the oldest winery in the Americas—Casa Madero in Parras.

“One should always be drunk. That's all that matters...But with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you chose. But get drunk.”

Charles Baudelaire, Paris Spleen

Notice that it isn't called "National 'Sip' Wine Day"...

Thanks to Todd McCalla we not only have a reason to look into the history of wine, but we have an excuse to drink (more of) it*!

While I could be completely redundant and post links to other sites that have done a beautiful job of presenting wine history and nerdy facts, I'd rather just present you with my favorite fact and let you get to drinkin'...:

The oldest winery in the Americas is Casa Madero in Parras de la Fuente, Coahuila, México, founded, on August 19th 1597.

¡Vive México!

For those of you yet to be indoctrinated to the glory of Mexican Wines, reach for a Tempranillo. It's way more full-bodied ("mmm-ier" for the non-native wine speakers) than its Spanish namesake.
