Today is National Red Wine day, not to be confused with National Drink Wine Day in February.
Red Wine Day started back in 2014, and there are many ways to celebrate. Maybe pop open a Cabernet Sauvignon.
The cab comes from the grape that's most widely planted in the world.
Next in popularity is Merlot followed by Zinfandel.
If you can't make up your mind, there are plenty of great blends of red wine to choose from.
Here are some local ways you can celebrate locally:
Estiatorio Milos, the Cosmopolitan's resident Mediterranean dining experience, touts a decadent selection of red wines by the glass that perfectly pair with the restaurant’s pristine seafood. Sip and savor on Greek red win staples like Agiorgitiko and Xinomavro on Estiatorio Milos’ private outdoor terrace overlooking the unparalleled views of the Las Vegas Strip.
Culinary mastermind José Andrés’ Jaleo brings the unequivocal flavors of Spain to the resort with the restaurant’s delectable Sangria Hour menu. Available Tuesday-Saturday 5:30 – 6:30 p.m., the specially curated menu pairs Jaleo’s best Sangría de vino tinto in addition to several other wine, beer and cocktail options, with six of the venue’s best tapas.
