NATIONAL STRAWBERRY RHUBARB WINE DAY

The registrar of National Day Calendar has designated the third Saturday in July of each year as National Strawberry Rhubarb Wine Day.  This day celebrates the smooth and fruity taste, you will find,  in a glass full of  some delicious, chilled, Strawberry Rhubarb Wine.  

In July of 2010, Maple River Winery in historic downtown Casselton, North Dakota, proudly accepted the Double Gold Award at the Indy International Wine Competition for it’s Strawberry Rhubarb Wine.

  • Rhubarb, although known as a tart fruit to most, is actually a vegetable and when combined with strawberries has a unique flavor that some consider the perfect balance of tartness and sweetness.   It was decided in a New York court in 1947 that since rhubarb was used in the United States as a fruit, that it was to be counted as a fruit for the purposes of regulations and duties.
