You don't need a nationally designated day to drink wine, but if there were ever a day, Feb. 18 is it.
Tuesday is National Drink Wine Day, and whether you're a fan of reds or whites, Northeast Ohio has plenty of wine bars ready to serve you a pour.
Check out our list of three local favorites, then let us know where you like to sip your favorite wines.
CLE Urban Winery
CLE Urban Winery offers a handful of whites, reds and fruit wines, including Rust Belt Rosé, Mighty Cuyahoga Merlot and Lake Erie Riesling. Guests can also sample flights of wine, try a guided tasting of five one-ounce pours or chill down with a special wine slushie. You can even bring your own food to pair with your pours.

Grab your gals and try a flight at this Gordon Square spot. Flight selections boast fun names such as "Gettin' Fizzy With It", "Sweet Child O' Wine" and "Back That Glass Up."
