It's February 18th, which means it's time to have a glass of wine.

National Drink Wine Day, because why not? It's no longer Dry January, it's no longer 2020, and I've got a bottle already opened.

Some Wine Facts:

  • Wine started in the Middle East, Asia, and Greece as far back as 6000 BC.
  • The oldest known winery was discovered in a cave in Armenia, which was dated to 4,000 years old.
  • Barrels of "fine wine" were found in the tombs of Egyptian Pharaohs.
  • Ancient Greeks use wine in secret religious ceremonies.
  • While grapes may have slightly changed in their structure, the process of wine hasn't changed.

National Today conducted a survey to find out what kind of wine, and how much of it we're drinking.
