NATIONAL STRAWBERRY RHUBARB WINE DAY
Summer days are as sweet as strawberries and wine. That’s why the third Saturday in July is an excellent day to commemorate National Strawberry Rhubarb Wine Day. This day celebrates the smooth and fruity taste found in a glass full of some delicious, chilled, Strawberry Rhubarb Wine.
In July of 2010, Maple River Winery in historic downtown Casselton, North Dakota, proudly accepted the Double Gold Award at the Indy International Wine Competition for its Strawberry Rhubarb Wine.
Rhubarb, a tart perennial vegetable, but when combined with strawberries has a unique flavor that some consider the perfect balance of tartness and sweetness. A New York court decided in 1947 that since rhubarb was used in the United States as a fruit, that for the purposes of regulation and duties, it was to be counted as a fruit.
