Gather Your Girlfriends to Celebrate Galentine's Day!

Come visit the winery with your girlfriends for Valentine's Day.

Forget Valentine’s Day: let’s celebrate Galentine’s Day! Since the beginning of time, female friendship has been the foundation of many women’s lives. Girlfriends provide unconditional emotional support, confidence, reassurance, and joy. So, even if you’re in a romantic relationship, this February should be about celebrating your real ride or die: your best friend.

What is Galentine’s Day?

It’s only the best day of the year – that’s according to Leslie Knope, the character from Parks and Recreation who invented the holiday almost a decade ago.

You’ve likely heard of the celebration of female friendship by now, but you may not know how it all began. Back in 2010, Knope (played by Amy Poehler) was looking for the perfect way to thank all of the amazing women in her life. What she came up with was a holiday that offers women the chance to get together once a year and celebrate their undying devotion to each other:

“Every February 13th,” Knope said, “my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas."

It's basically Valentine’s Day, only with your best friend . . . and a lot of wine.

How to Celebrate Galentine’s Day

How does one celebrate this most sacred of holidays? Well, that really depends on you and your ladies. Here are some of our favorite ideas:

  • Host a desserts-only potluck at InVINtions;
  • Schedule your own craft night (at the winery, of course), and at the end of the night gift your creations to each other;
  • Throw a slumber party, find a John Hughes movie on Netflix, and break out the Mall Madness;
  • Pull up the most outrageous makeup tutorial you can find on YouTube and practice on each other;
  • Call us to plan a group wine tasting!

We love the idea of gathering a group of your best girlfriends and celebrating Galentine’s Day together. In fact, we’ve planned an event geared or you! On February 13th, join us or our very own GALentine’s day Celebration from 5 to 8 PM. Enjoy a Buy 2, Get 1 FREE bottle of select wines, bring your food of choice and take back Valentine’s Day!
