On this fine Tuesday, February the 18th, we are blessed with yet another excuse to open a bottle of wine. Today is National Drink Wine Day – who knew?! According to the holiday’s official website, the purpose of the day is to “spread the love and health benefits” of the drink, such as “new friends, reduced risk of heart disease and the enhancement of food and life.” Keep in mind, these health benefits are only valid when wine (most specifically, red) is consumed in moderation.

If you're celebrating because you love the taste of wine in addition to the health benefits, might we suggest a new way to indulge?

Let us introduce you to Bottle of Wine Chocolate Pie.

If you’re wondering whether we managed to fit a whole bottle of wine in a pie, the answer is yes, yes we did. (This boozy dessert really lives up to its name.)

Perfect for a girls' night, or even as a dinner party grand finale, this simple-to-make dessert combines decadent dark chocolate and a standard bottle of dry red wine in a crushed chocolate cookie crust. The result is a creamy, indulgent pie that gives the gift of chocolate and wine in one bite. And thanks to the generous amount of booze, this dessert doesn’t skimp on any of the wine’s flavor, which is why we highly recommend choosing a bottle you know you love. It's worth it, we promise.
