5 wines for a Happy May Day !

 TAGS:

Time to celebrate May Day is coming! Can you think of a better occasion to party than to celebrate the end of winter and the start of summer times? (Almost) everywhere else in Europe, people have a bank holiday on the 8th of May to see military demonstrations, commemorating the liberation. Great ? but isn?t it better to have a spectacular free first Monday of May, (this year, the 5th), and dance and drink good wine for mother earth instead of sleeping in front of a tank?

This happened for some of us too thou, in Scotland, where people have been asked to commemorate the liberation once, in 1995. Good! Once is ok. Now, lets look at our childern dance maypole, while we can  “Morris dance?, make floral garlands, having fun and drink good wines !

Here is a good selection for you to enjoy you day off properly:
