To help you pick your wines this year, we’ve put together a handy calendar with the international wine and grape days for 2021.

If you’re just looking for a bit of inspiration of what to taste next, or interested in trying something new, our calendar should help guide some of your next wine choices.

Whether it’s a Carignan or a Cabernet, on its calendar day, why not join a world of wine lovers and share a picture of your bottle and tag @wsetglobal (we’ve also included some of the most commonly used hashtags!)

Happy tasting for 2021!
