Stay Comfortable with Fine Wines from Vintage Wine Company on a Cold and Rainy Day

Fine Wine

It's official: summer is here! But, we're not yet getting a reprieve from dreary, rainy weather. When the rain starts falling, and the windows start clouding with atmospheric moisture, there's only one way to while away a lazy evening: with good company and fine wine. But, when the mood strikes, what wines should you have on hand? What are the best rainy day wines? In today's post, we're going to take a look at a handful of possibilities and, more importantly, how to best enjoy them.

Pinot noir

A rainy day classic, Pinot noir is a great complement to an evening indoors. When paired with a hearty stew or chili, it’s even better. As far as relaxing nights go, what better way to wind down than beside a fireplace, surrounded by friends, a warm stew, and a glass Pinot noir in hand?


Looking for an aged wine? Something that has a little bit of bite and is capable of holding its own against rich, earthy dishes like roasted vegetables and meats? Chardonnay is the fine wine that you’re looking for!


If you trend toward simpler preparations, Champagne is the wine for you. Great when paired with simple cheese plates, chocolates, and other “packaged” desserts, Champagne is a grab-and-go answer to the perennial question, “What should we do tonight?”
