National Wine Day falls on Friday this year, right before Memorial Day Weekend. and we can think of no better way for work-weary travel nurses to celebrate than kicking back and sampling a nice glass of pinot noir.
National Wine Day has unclear historical connotations but is intended to celebrate all things wine by popping bottles, tapping kegs and generally enjoying all things wine. Not to be confused with National Wine Drinking Day in February, which is meant to bring awareness to wine’s historical importance in human history and profess its health benefits.
