November 2020 Wine Holidays

First up is November 1, 2020 which is International Xinomavro Day. If you missed out on celebrating this wine holiday, make sure you mark those calendars for next year. The Association of Winemakers “Wines of North Greece” recognizes the charismatic “Xinomavro”, as it holds the top rank among the Greek varieties.

Next up is November 7, 2020 which is a heavy favorite with wine lovers across the globe. We hope you were able to toast this one – the International Merlot Day! Along with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, Merlot is one of the primary grapes used in Bordeaux wine. It is also the most widely planted grape in the Bordeaux wine regions. Merlot is also one of the most popular red wine varietals in many markets. It goes without saying that this wine deserves to be celebrated!

November 12th is this year’s International Tempranillo Day. If you missed out, remember these hashtags #TempranilloDay or #Tempranillo . They always make the Twitter trends because, hey, what wino doesn’t love the earthy, fruity taste of this wine? Don’t forget that this wine holiday always falls on the 2nd Thursday of November.

So how about today, the 18th of November? Well, we hope you have your wineglasses ready because today is National Zinfandel Day! Zinfandel is often called the “beginner’s wine.” If you started your wine journey with a bottle of Zin, then never forget to celebrate it! Zinfandel Day falls on the 3rd Wednesday in November every year.

Tomorrow is also another wine holiday – a terrific excuse to pop open another bottle or two. Beaujolais Nouveau Day actually falls on the 3rd Thursday of November every year. This year, it’s on the 19th!

Last but definitely not the least, mark your calendars for the 24th of November.  It’s a special day for Carmenère lovers! The wine is treasured for its supple red-and-black berry flavors. It is quite similar style to Merlot. But it is distinguished from the latter with its herbaceous green peppercorn accents. ^_^
