Pour a glass of your favorite wine on May 25 to participate in National Wine Day. Celebrated each year, it has a sister holiday in February, National Drink Wine Day.

Made from fermented grapes or other fruits, wine is an alcoholic beverage. During the fermentation processes, yeast consumes the sugars in the grapes converting it into alcohol. Different grapes produce different wines. Winemakers will combine different wines to create more complex flavors. Wines made from fruit or honey are often named according to the variety of fruit used. As many of us officially start our summer season with Memorial Day Weekend, these wines will compliment any summer gathering.
