Host a virtual wine tasting party 

Like many things in the age of the coronavirus pandemic, taking things from in-person to video chats can translate to wine tasting. Round up your pals on FaceTime or Zoom and sip a variety of wines from the comfort of your own homes. The best part is you can choose to taste exactly the kinds of wines that fit your palate.

Create some decor

Wine aficionados likely have plenty of bottles they're planning to consume over time, but instead of tossing them in the recycling bin, use them to decorate your space. Country Living reports bottles can make unique centerpieces for everything from flowers, to candles to terrariums.

Give the gift of wine

Use the day to treat the wine lover in your life to a bottle of their favorite beverage, which some metro Atlanta restaurants have offered to go. Drop it off at their doorstep in a neatly wrapped box and include a card to make it more personal.

Drink up

Probably the most straight-forward way to celebrate National Wine Day is to simply drink a glass of the beverage. Pour one in a festive wine glass and sip on it while reading a book or bingeing your favorite TV series.
