National White Wine Day

August 4th is observed annually as National White Wine Day. This day celebrates an alcoholic beverage traditionally paired with lobster, oysters, and other seafood forms, but it also pairs quite nicely with roast pork, prosciutto, soft pretzels, and even tortilla chips with salsa.

White wine is a very versatile drink, thanks to it being lighter and more refreshing than red wine. And because drinking a glass or two is healthy, people shouldn’t feel bad about indulging every once in a while.

It doesn’t matter if a person enjoys Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, or Moscato. All that matters is that they take the time to enjoy this beverage, if they’re of legal age, on this holiday.

The History of National White Wine Day

Humans have been making white wine for at least 4,000 years, if not longer. It’s made by fermenting the non-colored pulp of grapes instead of fermenting the grapes with their skins.

This creates a wine that can be yellow-green, straw-yellow, or yellow-gold in color. White wine comes in a number of varieties, depending on how the wine is made and the ratios of residual sugar left in the wine after the process is completed.

Unfortunately, while we have a good idea of how white wine is produced and where it came from, we can’t say the same about this holiday. We simply can’t determine the origins of National White Wine Day.

It’s certainly possible that this holiday was created by white wine producers or marketers, but we have been unable to determine just where this day came from. We’ll continue to research this holiday in our spare time, and if we do determine its origin, then we’ll update this section.

Observing National White Wine Day

Everyone wishing to observe this holiday can pour themselves a glass of white wine. It’s as easy as that for people of legal drinking age. People can also use this holiday to learn more about white wine and the winemaking process.

Some might even want to try their hand at making their own white wine. People can also take the time to look out for white wines that they might enjoy. And finally, white wine lovers can spread the word about this day using the hashtag #NationalWhiteWineDay on social media.

White wine is a great alcoholic drink that is easy to drink, pairs with numerous foods, and is heart-healthy when consumed in moderation. These are all good reasons for the average person to have a glass of white wine on this holiday.
