Celebrate Australia Day!
Tuesday, January 26th marks Australia Day 2010! This is the largest, most widely celebrated holiday across the Australian continent and the best part is: there is no wrong way to celebrate!
Jacob’s Creek has been nestled in the heart of Australia’s Barossa Valley since 1847 and has sustained their high standard of winemaking enacted by Jacob’s Creek founder, Johann Gramp. Jacob’s Creek became Australia’s first commercial vineyard and Johann’s original cellar is still standing at Jacob’s Creek, Australia today. Their philosophy? To create a wine that goes with any occasion… so what better way to celebrate Australia’s most celebrated day than with a glass of your favorite Aussie wine? The holiday is technically in memory of the First Fleet of Convicts to land in Botany Bay in 1978, but was not nationally celebrated until 1944. A “proper” way to celebrate Australia Day has never been established and instead is generally accepted as a day Australians take to do what they want to do, while simultaneously showing their patriotism.
