It’s International Wine Day today, a day to celebrate the things that makes wine great and why we love it so much.

It’s always a good time to enjoy a glass of wine (or three) - whether it’s to wind down after a long day or to turn things up before a night out.

According to Days of the Year, Wine Day is more about celebrating the beverage rather than the act of drinking it.

Of course, there’s no rule against sipping on your favourite varietal while celebrating wine o’ clock all day.  

South African is home to some of the world’s best wines and most beautiful wine estates.

Unless you’re an aficionado, it’s hard to choose a favourite wine or the perfect wine estate that caters to your palate.

But if you’re just a wine enthusiast who wants to keep up with the latest trends then these are the wine bloggers you need to follow.

Happy International Chardonnay day! Bigger is better and biggest is best, If you take my advise your Chardonnay will outshine all the rest.especially with this magnum bottle of Lothian Chardonnay 2016 from the Elgin Valley. . Elgin in my opinion produces the creme dela creme when it comes to South African Chardonnay. You'll often find beautiful notes of hazelnut, orange blossom, stone fruit, lemon peel with beautiful mineralitly when in come to a Elgin Chardonnay. Always elegant, fresh and never flabby. . What is your favourite South African Chardonnay? . . . . #internationalchardonnayday #chardonnay #elginwines #winegirl #winewoman #wineoftheday #winemagnum #thewinefox #whitewine #wineblogger
