As if we needed another excuse to open up a bottle of wine, next Tuesday, August 28, is National Red Wine Day! We rounded up five chic venues where you can enjoy the best reds that Philly has to offer. Whether you prefer French or Italian, with a little sparkle or with a side of cheese, fill up your glass with a new favorite this year.
