Every year, millions of people celebrate St Patrick’s Day, an annual event that honors the heritage and culture of Ireland.
On this day, many will conveniently remember that their ancestors moved over from Ireland centuries ago. And others, at the same time, will use the occasion to drink liters of beer. Or both.
But first of all, let’s make a little reminder about St Patty’s Day.
Originally, the celebration was a religious feast day for St Patrick – the patron saint of Ireland and a Christian missionary. He was actually not born Irish but Scottish. However, he said to have spent a lot a time in Ireland and converted lots of pagans to Christianity before his death on March 17 in the fifth century.
St Patrick’s Day has since grown into a global and international celebration of the Irish culture. Shamrocks, the three-leaved plants which were used by St Patrick to explain the Holy Trinity to pagans, are worn by many.
Celebrated as a national holiday in Northen Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, it is also widely observed in the United Kingdom, America, Canada or Australia.
Moreover, festivities are usually involving drinking, most of the time beer, such as stouts like Guinness.
But why not changing for once?
The One to Wine Leprechaun will not only carry the pot of gold coins in 2018! But he will also hide a nice bottle of Ambitieux Sauvignon/Chardonnay blend from the Loire Valley!
His nice pale yellow dress and has aromas of grapefruit with a hint of white flowers will be a perfect opening for Spring. And his fresh citrus aromas will be a nice fresh and fruity balance to input a little change in this Irish feast.
For ones who don’t know what a Leprechaun is, let’s have a little updating! Typically represented as a creature dressed in green with red hair and hiding a pot of gold. Directly derived from the Irish folklore, it is the mascot of St Patrick’s Day!
