On Tuesday, May 25, oenophiles everywhere will raise a glass of their favorite vino in honor of National Wine Day. Here are six Valley businesses offering deals for wine lovers to sip and celebrate.
A modern taqueria might not be the first thing that comes to mind when someone says “stellar wine selection,” but CRUjiente is a hidden gem for wine lovers. Its extensive wine program specializes in labels sourced from Spain. CRUjiente’s founding partner and wine aficionado recommends the Olivares Rosado Rosé and Botijo Garnacha for National Wine Day.

From Pinot Noir to Prosecco and everything in between, pop into Grimaldi’s to pair a half-off bottle or glass of wine with your pizza. Glasses of red or white sangria are also 50 percent off all day for dine-in.

Humble Pie has a not-so-humble wine selection, boasting a lofty list of labels from around the world. Lucky for wine drinkers, National Wine Day falls on a Tuesday, when Humble Pie offers its cheeky Nosh & Slosh deal (charcuterie board and bottle of wine for $25). The Social Sixes menu features $6 snacks and cocktails and, of course, wine by the glass is also just $6 until 6 p.m. on National Wine Day.
