Today is Drink Wine Day! Pop the cork and enjoy a refreshing

People have been producing wine since at least 6000 B.C. There are
dozens of ancient legends about humans who accidentally consumed
fermented grapes and became intoxicated, which is probably how wine was
first conceived. Eventually, people began experimenting with the
fermentation process. The methods for making wine spread from the region
of Mesopotamia to Egypt, Greece, Rome, France, Spain, and eventually
the New World. Today, over 20 million acres of the earth’s surface are
dedicated to growing grapes for wine.
Studies have shown that drinking a glass of wine a day improves heart
health, reduces forgetfulness, boosts immunity, and increases bone
density. To celebrate Drink Wine Day, check out a local winery, send
your friends a virtual toast with a free eCard, or host an impromptu wine tasting! Cheers!
