5 Ways To Celebrate National Wine Day
If ever there was a reason to celebrate the unofficial start to summer, it’s with National Wine Day. The toast-worthy holiday falls on May 25, and as the wine gods would have it, that’s a Saturday this year. While we’re obvious fans of fine dining in Pawleys Island, there’s more than one way to celebrate the day of vino. From hosting your own event to enjoying patio dining in Pawleys Island, our ideas will help you make the most of this once-a-year event.
Host A Wine Tasting
Wine tastings give you and your guests a good reason to sample wines you’ve never before experienced. Whether you’re looking for a great wine to pair with dinner, or you just want to try a selection of local wines, hosting your own event is a fun way to sip and relax. Invite a few friends and ask them to bring a bottle of their favorite to share with the group. Wine tastes are so unique, you’re sure to end up with a wide selection.
Plan A Beach Drink
You’ll want to avoid sand in your snacks, but with wine coming in so many convenient containers now – like small boxes and cans – you can easily pack a cooler of wine and hit the shore. Whether you spend the day in the sun or time your visit just right for a beautiful sunset, sipping wine on the beach is a great way to celebrate National Wine Day. Some of our favorite canned wines include:
- 2016 Nomadica California Rosé
- 2014 Alloy Wine Works Central Coast Pinot Noir
- 2016 Ferdinand California Albariño
Plan A Wine Swap
Who says you need to wait until Christmas to exchange gifts with friends? You can plan your own Pawleys Island fine dining experience by whipping up an easy summer dinner and inviting friends over for a wine swap. Encourage everyone to bring a bottle of wine. Draw numbers for who gets to select from the collection first, sending everyone home with a new bottle of vino.
Get Crafty With Wine Corks
If you enjoy a bottle of wine at home or splurge during a fine dining meal in Pawleys Island, you may keep your corks as a memento. If you have a basket of wine corks you’ve been gathering for some time, put them to good use. Create a wine cork trivet for the kitchen or custom wine cork wreath for the front door. You have a new-found purpose for your wine corks, and all the more reason to pop another bottle and rebuild your collection.
Enjoy Outdoor Dining Pawleys Island
If you’re all for celebrating National Wine Day by taking it easy and sipping a glass of your favorite, there’s no better way to do it than dining al fresco Pawleys Island. The Chive Blossom courtyard is a comfortable spot to enjoy outdoor dining and a refreshing glass of Riesling.
Celebrate National Wine Day May 25 in the comfort of your own home or at Chive Blossom, a top choice for excellent wines and fine dining in Pawleys Island.
