If you’re craving a glass of Pinot today, you’re in good company: it’s National Wine Day. Unlike National Beer Day, it doesn’t appear that there’s a historically significant reason for the day – but that shouldn’t stop wine aficionados across the globe from enjoying a nice glass of wine.

1. Wine is about 8,000 years old. The exact beginnings are debated (with factions claiming “firsts” in both China and Mesopotamia), but most historians tend to agree that wine was discovered by accident. That’s likely why it is thought to come from the gods: it’s a natural product since it does not have to be manipulated in the same way as beer or whiskey. Grapes that fall from vines can eventually become wine – even if it’s not something that you and I would want to drink.

Thursday was a relatively quiet day on Wall Street, and action in different parts of the market showed mixed signals for investors. On one hand, small-cap stocks moved higher, with key benchmarks in that area hitting record highs. Yet the better-known large-cap stock indexes like the S&P 500 gave up early gains.
