Saint Vincent, the official patron saint of winemakers, is celebrated every year on January 22nd. Un-coincidentally, January 22nd is ideal for winegrowers because it symbolizes a mid-point in the vine’s growing cycle.

Let’s celebrate the patron saint of the vignérons – winemakers. My first job after university was as a sommelier and caviste at Swedens largest wine cellar – Vinkällaren Grappe where we always celebrated Saint Vincent and also Saint Martin, patron saint of the cellar workers and cavists.
