Day #41 of the year.

Shades of Blue Riesling

Can you name something that humans invented over 4,000 years ago that we still use today, and has undergone minimal design change over 4+ millennia? If you said “umbrella,” congrats, you win a bottle of…something else humans have been making for millennia—wine, of course! Today is National Umbrella Day, which seems like a silly thing to celebrate, but try scoffing at one the next time you’re caught in a downpour. The right match for a rainy day is this semi-dry Shades of Blue Riesling from Mosel. That beautiful blue bottle and label are all about the water element, and its flavors of tropical and stone fruits will be just the thing to put a smile on your face when you come in out of the rain, umbrella dripping.
