International Wine Varietal Days

Many grape varieties have a special day for their celebration. For example 17 April is Malbec Day. These days give producers, marketers and consumers a chance to share the love about their favourite variety

These events also give writers an bloggers a chance to relook at the variety and share with their readers.

Typically there are both online and offline events, often there are physical events in many location throughout the world. So you have no excuses for not joining in.

I decided to compile a list of these days for my own organisational purposes. Then I thought it might be good to create the resource collaboratively and share the result.

You can help by adding a comment about any varietal day that you know about in the comment box below. Please add a link to the appropriate website if you can. From time to time I'll come back and re-organise this page.

The list is in two sections, the first listed alphabetically by variety. Followed a listing by month to let you see what is coming up. The events tend to be arranged on a similar date each year. Again readers help is sought to getting the date for the next event
