If you could pour late summer into a glass, swoosh it around and inhale it there would probably be hints of another national wine day on the nose. Mark your calendars and polish your red wine glasses, National Red Wine Day is on Tues., Aug. 28. To celebrate, there are National Red Wine Day 2018 deals and freebies to commemorate the occasion.
If your favorite kind of deal is cozying up to a pour of Gamay in wool socks — even in the summer — after a strenuous day at your 9-5, imagine all of that 10 percent off. Thankfully, offers are swirling around the internet so you can sip on Pinot Noir or Merlot or Sangiovese or Chianti at a discounted price.
You might be wondering, "aren't we still in the midst of rosé season?" While we might be more inclined to consume rosy hued wine in warmer months, red wine isn't waiting around for winter like snow boots in the back of a closet. Still in the height of heat waves but on the verge of yellowing leaves, late August might just be the perfect time to celebrate red wine. Whether it's with a glass of a slightly chilled bottle of La Boutanche's "Pinot/Gamay" or a rich red that could keep you company by a roaring fireplace like a solid Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, we found the deals so all you need to worry about is not breaking the cork.
