We love March for so many reasons. The days are getting longer, the weather’s getting warmer, and one of our favorite days is approaching. Hint: People wear green so they won’t get pinched. Yes, St. Patty’s Day it is. A great day for all to rejoice in the luck of the Irish.

Luck comes in many different forms. Having a rabbit foot keychain, picking up a penny on heads, or putting a four-leaf clover in your pocket are all common good-luck traditions.

And luck is just what our Sutter Home “Good Luck” Cocktail will bring you. Made with Sutter Home Chardonnay, it’s a feast of fresh honeydew, grapefruit, and passion fruit tasting notes along with with slices of lime, cucumber, and a sprig of minty green. One sip and you’ll say, Sláinte!”

Fun Fact About St. Patty’s Day. The color of St. Patrick was not actually green, but blue! In the 19th century, however, green became used as a symbol for Ireland. In Ireland, there is plentiful rain and mist, so the Emerald Isle really is green all year-round. The beautiful green landscape was probably the inspiration for the national color. Wearing the color green is considered an act of paying tribute to Ireland. It is said that it also brings good luck, especially when worn on St. Patrick’s Day. Many long years ago, playful Irish children began the tradition of pinching people who forgot to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day, and the tradition is still practiced today. So remember to always wear green!
