Wine O'Clock is a Real Thing, Study Finds

Wine O'Clock is a Real Thing, Study Finds

It's official- a home-cooked meal, a good book, and a glass of wine have been named among the top 20 best things in life for Americans, according to a new study.

The study of 2,000 Americans found that going shopping for themselves, having a date night with a partner, the feel of fresh bed sheets and a happy hour with friends were some of life's greatest pleasures.

In fact, among the top 20 moments Americans look forward to the most included talking on the phone with a best friend, reading a magazine, and spraying on some perfume.

A study conducted by OnePoll in conjunction with JaM Cellars, the makers of Butter Chardonnay examined the wine drinking habits and behaviors of 2,000 Americans and found that when it comes to life's little moments, drinking wine actually tops the list at number one.

America named a glass of wine as their best little treat, with 65 percent voting it to the top of Americans' top 20 little luxuries.

In fact, half of respondents said they drink wine at least weekly, with half of those drinking wine several times per week.

Wine came out on top over moments such as getting a massage, indulging in dark chocolate, and even putting fresh sheets on the bed.

But when is the optimal time for savoring wine?

According to the study, 6:59 pm is America's ideal time to enjoy a glass of wine- voted 'Wine O'Clock' by respondents.

And Saturday evening is the preferred day of the week for 55 percent of those surveyed who are likely to be sipping some wine at the end of the week.

Interestingly enough, wine is also enjoyed consistently throughout the week.

Wine is an everyday treat for Americans because it is relaxing (62 percent), people enjoy the taste (57 percent), and it's a great way to have fun with family and friends (37 percent).

And 66 percent of the people surveyed revealed they enjoy a nice glass of wine at home.

America's favorite place to enjoy wine is no longer a traditional food setting, it turns out, the couch is the go-to spot for wine.

"Wine can be great with food, but we've always felt it doesn't have to be fancy, formal, or confined to the dinner table—and it looks like America agrees" said Michele Truchard, Co-Founder of JaM Cellars, makers of Butter Chardonnay.

"This is the vision we had when we started JaM Cellars 10 years ago.

Wine can be intimidating and expensive, so we make great-quality wines that are simply easy-to-love anytime.

Finding your favorite wine and having a few bottles on hand to share with friends is all part of the enjoyment of life." But, the reason people enjoy their wine so much is because for 67 percent of Americans, it's a great way to relax, unwind, and enjoy some me-time.

But not everyone sips wine by themselves.

It turns out, 49 percent of those studied actually enjoy the company of their spouse or partner when enjoying wine, while another 58 percent revealed that enjoying fun times with friends was a leading scenario that would call for Wine O'Clock.

"It's so exciting to see Americans enjoying wine more often and whenever they choose.

Whether it's a little me-time, or hanging out with girlfriends, wine really is a great everyday treat.

First and foremost wine should be delicious, fun and easy to love.

6:59 pm is a fantastic Wine O'Clock to put on the calendar, but the perfect time for wine is whenever and wherever you choose" added Michele Truchard, Co-Founder, JaM Cellars makers of Butter Chardonnay.
