Cheers! It Is National Wine Day




Hello friends, it's National Wine Day, so raise your glass with friends or family.  It's sister holiday, national Drink Wine Day is February 18th next year.

I made a roasted vegetable tart for the occasion. My husband's birthday was May 21, so I bought him a bottle of his favorite wine.  He decided to save it and not drink it on his birthday.

Cheers!


Yield: 8 Servings

ROASTED VEGETABLE TART

A colorful medley of roasted veggies sits on top of a pesto, goat cheese spread, arranged on top of puff pastry.

  • 1 Sheet Puff Pastry- Half of 17.2 package
  • 2 Zucchini cut into 1/4" diagonal cut slices

  2. Linda, Your tart looks scrumptious!! Happy Birthday to your hubby -- I'm sure he enjoyed the wonderful treat with his favorite wine. Yesterday I went into my local vineyard to buy a rosé which I like mainly because the label has a beautiful Lady Godiva painting on it, and they told me there would be no rosé until June 10, which is National Rosé wine day! Another reason to celebrate coming soon! Linda

  3. Oh! That looks so good! I LOVE wine. Hubby and I are members of 6 winery wine clubs in the Hill Country of Texas... Today I stopped by Trader Joe's for an inexpensive bottle after work (Cocobon, so good!) and the cashier told me it was Wine Day. Well, when is it NOT? (:

  7. Cheers to you, Linda. I didn't know it was national wine day! My husband enjoys wine, but I'm not so much into it. I do love a nice cold Sangria on a warm afternoon. Your tart sure looks delicious. Happy belated birthday to your husband! ♥

  10. Oh, this sounds fun. The roasted vegetable tart looks scrumptious, and these are beautiful red roses. The girls love to have a glass of wine at dinner, but Jess is holding back for awhile, as she is pregnant. Yes, I'm going to be a grandmother! Happy belated birthday wishes to your husband, Linda. I'm a May birthday girl too. : ) Your wine area is lovely, and perfect for national wine day.

    love, ~Sheri
