Cakebread Cellars Napa Valley Chardonnay
While you may breakout your grill and bathing suit for Memorial Day, Labor Day and the 4th of July, it’s rare to find anyone who celebrates flag day. The history of flag day dates to 1885, when Bernard Cigrand, a small-town Wisconsin school teacher, promoted the idea of a day where we would all unify under one flag. While this concept might seem common to us modern citizens, but at that point in time, the United States had been multiple flags representing different groups. Today, the flag has 13 stripes, representing the 13 original colonies, and 50 stars representing each state. On Flag Day, we come together under one nation and one flag in solidarity. On Flag Day, drink a wine that celebrates American history like Cakebread Cellars Napa Valley Chardonnay. Yes, this wine will pair well with your grilled shrimp and Saturday Sunshine, but it does more to bring together than good flavors. Cakebread’s Napa Chardonnay is the kind of wine with 50 years of history defining its characteristics making it quality wine that everyone can connect to.
