National Drink Wine Day is only a reminder to those of us who take great pleasure in the art of sipping fermented grapes to pop open another bottle. But let’s face it: If you love wine, you don’t really need a holiday to remind you to drink it, so instead let’s dedicate this glorious day to trying a new wine, or, perhaps, trying new ways of enjoying it. You’d be surprised at all of the places and ways that you can indulge. Check out these five interesting places to order wine!
Yes, you read that right. At the Subsix lounge at the luxury Niyama Private Island resort in the Maldives, you can enjoy a nice glass of red or white 19 feet below sea level. Of all of the places to order wine, if this one seems like the most extravagant, it’s because it truly is. The restaurant is only accessible by boat on an already private island in the middle of the vast Indian Ocean. Subsix offers wine lovers an impressive lineup of 300 different wines, and 16 of them are available by the glass. Subsix serves breakfast, lunches and throws glowing underwater dinner parties. And the best part besides of being underwater while drinking wine? While you’re sipping on some Cab, you can expect to see all kinds of beautiful sea creatures like hawksbill turtles, butterfly fish and moray eels swim by.
4.) Coffee Shop
The world-famous Napa Valley is known by wine connoisseurs for producing some of the best wine in the country. The beautiful California county has over 400 wineries spread across 45,000 acres of beautiful wine country. With hundreds of styles of wine, there is sure to be a vino for just about anyone. Innovation in the wine industry continues to thrive in Napa, and more than 3.5 million wine enthusiasts visit yearly.
A coffee shop in Napa, Calif., has taken innovation to the next level with its new invention: wine-infused coffee. Molinari created a unique blend of our two favorite drinks: coffee and wine. The “full-bodied coffee relaxes in a beautiful wine, absorbing the wine’s nose and history,” as described by Molinari. After the infusion, the beans are dried and hand-roasted in small batches.
Wine-infused coffee can be found in coffee shops in Napa Valley as well as online through Molinari’s website. Thanks to Molinari, your coffee now comes with a kick, and your mornings can now be your happy hour.
3.) Marijuana Shop
Wine pairs perfectly with a lot of things. Enjoy a glass with an assortment of cheeses, steak or chocolate – the list goes on, and the options are endless. Infused wine is nothing new, and if you’re into infused wine, then the next thing on your list to try should be a cannabis-infused wine.
Canna Vine has taken wine infusion to the next level. A marijuana-and-wine blend isn’t necessarily new, but companies like Canna Vine offer wine infused with high-grade marijuana. The wine is infused with CBD, which offers a relaxing body high, eliminating the psychoactive haziness that may come from ingesting THC.
How much does it take to enjoy a “euphoric” glass of this wine? Well, you can’t order wine like this presently. Plus, the process is long; the buds are wrapped in cheesecloth and soaked in a barrel of marijuana. Fast-forward to one year later, and you can enjoy the body high that this green wine gives. But this intriguing pot wine is only available for Californians with a proper license to buy and comes at the hefty price of $120 to $400 for half of a bottle. Yes, half.
Either way, a bottle of Canna Vine will definitely upgrade your wine nights.
2.) At Your Front Door
Let’s face it, sometimes there is no better place to order wine than in the comfort of your home. Enjoying a glass of wine while in your PJs on the couch is a simple luxury of life, and Amazon Prime is here to help in your times of need. If you ever find yourself in a wine crisis, you can rely on Amazon Prime to get your bottles in an hour.
How do you get your wine delivered? Well, if you’re an Amazon Prime customer and live in one of the 30 cities that offers the super-fast delivery service, then you can fill up your basket with some bottles, pay a $7.99 fee and watch as your package of Sauvignon Blanc is delivered straight to your door.
If you’re having a rainy day in and you’re stuck at home or don’t have time to run to the grocery store before a dinner party, Amazon is here to save the day. It’s pretty much the best thing you could receive in a package, ever.
1.) On The Rails
It’s obvious that when you go on a wine tour, you’ll be tasting (ahem, drinking) wine all day long. But what about on a 10-hour train ride through the beautiful wine country in Tennessee? The Tennessee Central Railway now offers wine-themed train excursions through the beautiful countryside on your way to visit the DelMonaco Winery near Cookeville. This romantic train ride turns the classic wine tour into the ultimate adventure while you enjoy delicious glasses of wine from the vineyards at DelMonaco.
The train leaves Nashville and takes you through the beautiful countryside and small towns. Once you arrive at DelMonaco, you can start the official tour of the vineyards and learn about the wine that you’ve been drinking on the train ride. The DelMonaco tour is the highlight of the trip, and you’ll definitely enjoy it after sipping on glasses of Pinot on the ride over. Once you’re there, unlimited wine tasting, great food and lunch await you, and, afterward, the Tennessee Central Railway will take you back to town. Sound like something you won’t want to miss? Tickets for the day tour start at only $65 per person. All aboard, we’re drinking wine!
