Happy St. Patrick’s Day

March 17th is always designated as St. Patrick’s Day and is one of the more fun holidays.  We here at Paso Wine Barrels have Irish in our background so we thought we’d just give a quick nod to the Irish and everything it means to be Irish.

As you may have guessed, I like history and was going to go into a long dissertation, but decided that was for another time.  I will say the term ‘Wearin O The Green’ simply comes from the color of the beloved shamrock and the fact that Irish took to wearing green as a designation through a ballad from a few centuries back.

So when you see the special like we are running today, now you know where the saying comes from.  And really, don’t all of us have a wee bit of Irish in us.
