It’s a Saturday, it’s Memorial Day Weekend, and today also happens to be National Wine Day 2019. With essentially three holidays all happening at once, you’re definitely going to want to spend the day celebrating. Luckily, there are a bunch of ways for you to do just that.

Here are a few different wines for you to try (for all budgets), recipes for you to make and deals for you to enjoy:


Intermingle Red Blend ($7)

Whether you’re celebrating the holiday alone or plan on having a bunch of friends over, this ALDI-exclusive California medium-dry red wine is a thrifty way to enjoy the day.

SVEDKA Rosé ($14)

If you want to enjoy National Wine Day but get a little boozier with it, this vodka made with five percent rosé wine is the perfect way to go.

Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio ($20)

Sit back on National Wine Day with a classic white wine to give yourself a little refresh.

Très Chic Rosé ($20)

There’s nothing like enjoying a nice rosé as the summer season nears and the weather warms.

WineSociety ($49+)

Think outside the box this holiday, and drink red, white or rosé wine out of a 500ml can. That’s close to a full bottle of wine, but since it’s in a can it’s a personal size, right?

It’s $99 for a box of nine cans, and buyers can choose to make this a one-time purchase or set it up to be delivered once every three months. There’s also a three-can box available for $49. Plus, the company’s running a Memorial Day sale of 15 percent off of those prices.

Mod Sélection Champagne (Réserve, $300 or Rosé, $400)

Really treat yourself for National Wine Day 2019, and just because you deserve it, with a bottle of champagne from Drake (yes, that Drake), who teamed up with Brent Hocking to create this sparkling wine collection.

Lightly muddle the peaches, oranges, cranberries and brandy in a pitcher before adding the wine and Sparkling Ice Classic Lemonade. Stir, and serve over ice with a peach slice to garnish.


Speaking of sangria, that brings us to the deals you can pick up on National Wine Day 2019.

Carrabba’s Italian Grill is offering entrée-buying patrons the option to grab an endless glass of peach, red or blackberry sangria for $12.99 through May 27. If you’re looking for some straight-forward wine specials, Giordano’s Pizza is offering half off their house wines all day Saturday.

If you’re just looking for alcohol specials to take advantage of today, and don’t necessarily need them to be focused on wine, here are a few others to check out.

Wine subscription service Winc is giving $26 off for the holiday with the code “MEMORIALDAY19.” It runs through May 30. There are a also a couple Cinco de Mayo deals still going on, including the $5 classic margarita at Bahama Breeze and the $1 margaritas at Applebee’s.
