The world celebrates Sauvignon Blanc Day April 24

With descriptive terms such as 'crisp, elegant & fresh', Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most consumed wine varieties. This April 24 2015 marks the sixth annual International Sauvignon Blanc Day, with celebrations kicking off in New Zealand before making their way around the globe following the sun. Sauvignon Blanc tastings and events are taking place in Melbourne, Hong Kong, Germany, London, Toronto, and New York, finishing 43 hours later at Twitter headquarters in San Francisco. Restaurants, retailers and consumers - along with global wine brands - will be celebrating Sauvignon Blanc for the day and spreading the conversation across social media using the "hashtag" #SauvBlanc.

Sauvignon Blanc day is just the start of a chain of celebrations of New Zealand wine, with further tasting events across Canada in Montreal, Toronto, Halifax and Vancouver. Get a taste of the events in this short video below. Find out more here -
