I was recently listening to the The Wonderful World Of Wine (WWW) podcast and I thought they were discussing a great topic:  Wine Holidays!  I found it really fun to listen to because each time I write the newsletter, I always look to see if their is a wine holiday coming up in the next two weeks. I reached out to Mark Lenzi who hosts the show with Kim Simone. I asked if he could share with me the list he compiled; he did.  It was quite extensive and well beyond just wine. It covered beer, wine, spirits, coffee, etc.  If you want to hear the entire list, please check our Episode 150 of their Wonderful World Of Wine podcast. I asked him if I could post just the Wine Holidays on the KWG Blog so my readers could plan to celebrate these fun events in the weeks and months to come. He agreed, and the wine list is below.  Please enjoy each Wine Holiday responsibly and with a KensWineGuide.com recommended wine.  Cheers!
