The Best Excuses to Drink Wine

Excuses to drink wine like watching TV

Some days we have more reasons than others to pour ourselves a glass. Maybe you’re committed to watching the Bachelor or Bachelorette. Maybe you knocked a presentation out of the park at work. Maybe… it’s Thursday. We asked our Bright Cellars’ community, “what’s your favorite excuse to drink wine?” and here are the results.


  • 59.1% of respondents said ‘I need an excuse to drink wine?’
  • 25% of respondents chose ‘I finished a long day of work.’
  • 6.9% of respondents said ‘it’s how I catch up with my friends.’ 
  • 3.9% of respondents said ’my favorite show is on.  
  • 1.9% of respondents said ’I just got my Bright Cellars box in the mail.’

We also asked our Bright Cellars Instagram community and got some honest responses that made us chuckle: 

  • All of the above 
  • Can I pick them all?

Sounds like the majority of you have this wine drinking thing figured out. We thought we could pull a fast one on you, but you were too clever. The right answer? Any excuse is a good excuse to drink wine.
