(CNN/Meredith) -- Tuesday is national drink wine day!

Celebrated every year on February 18, it's a day to select your favorite vintage and sip up!

According to nationaldrinkwineday.org, the idea is to promote the love and health benefits of wine.

Fermented grapes have been a part of human existence for thousands of years and have played an important role in history, religion, and relationships.

Wine has also been known to reduce some risks of heart disease and enhance food and life -- in moderation of course.
