NATIONAL STRAWBERRY RHUBARB WINE DAY
Summer days are as sweet as strawberries and wine. That’s why National Strawberry Rhubarb Wine Day on the third Saturday in July recognizes the smooth fruity taste found in a glassful! It’s an excellent day to go to a wine tasting featuring a 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.
Is rhubarb a fruit or a vegetable? While technically rhubarb may be known as a tart perennial vegetable, combining it with strawberries creates a unique flavor. Some even consider it the perfect balance of tartness and sweetness. Rhubarb even when to court over the matter. It happened in 1947 in a customs court in Buffalo, New York. The court ruled that since rhubarb is used as a fruit in the United States, for the purposes of regulations and duties, it was to be counted as a fruit.
