Raise a glass, because Monday is National Drink Wine Day.

The unofficial holiday, which coincides with Presidents Day this year, is a great excuse to indulge in some delicious vino.

According to NationalDrinkWineDay.org, the idea behind the holiday is to promote the love and health benefits of the drink.

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.
