the Best wines for rainy days

What to do on a rainy day? Drink wine of course!

Rainy days make us want to curl up under a blanket and watch Netflix or Amazon Prime. Why not do that with the perfect wine? There’s something about rainy days that give us the urge to drink bold and beautiful red wines by the fire…

Three of our favourite full-bodied red wines for those rainy and cold days are:

1. Cabernet Sauvignon

Intense red colour with purplish hues, this style of wine usually has delicate aromas of cherries and soft spice. A smooth wine with a pleasing, yet simple complexity. Its full body and robust, soft tannins deliver a wine with mass appeal of warm spice and fruit combined.

2.  Amarone

An irresistible and VERY full bodied wine with Intense ruby-garnet colour. It typically has aromas of coffee, cherries and raisin. Its high alcohol makes it full and generous in the mouth and it fills the palate with intense flavours, prolonging your pleasure with its characteristic slightly bitter finish. 

3.  Italian Super Tuscan

Subtle hints of vanilla with a robust fruity flavour and slightly oaky character. This wine (from Tuscany) is made from grape varieties that are traditionally found in Bordeaux. it is big on flavour! Build with a strong back bone of acidity, this wine is better served with food. This wine is great on the dinner table served with food and it is also perfect to have sitting by the fire on cold and rainy days!
