There are few things better than a good vintage wine. Nothing else can be used so diversely, on situations good or bad. When we are happy and celebrating, a glass of a good old vintage wine can take our happiness to new levels and can make the celebration even better. On our sad days, a glass of wine can help take some of the edge away and so it can make us feel a little better. Just having a dainty glass full of our favorite kind of wine can make feel so much more posh and refined. Just the act of popping the cork open and pouring out an aromatic glass of wine can make us feel more regal. However, a lot of people can still feel a little guilty about having a glass of their preferred vintage wine too often, owing to the alcohol content. For those of us who are lightweights, a glass or two of wine can be enough to make us tipsy, and while this can be great for letting us relax and unwind, we would rather not make this a daily habit. However, newer studies are showing that a glass of your favorite wine does you more good than harm.  

There are just so many newly discovered benefits of drinking wine – apart from making us feel posh and happy of course. When taken in the right, moderate doses, drinking vintage wine can really help us and our health. It can sound far-fetched, but wine, when taken in the right amounts, can help reduce the risk for developing obesity, cancer, gallstones, dental plague and so much more, such as keeping our hearts healthy as well. Wine contains many antioxidants which can help us stay in good shape while we enjoy. The presence of these antioxidants can also be why drinking wine every now and then can help us have our skin glowing and fresh all the time! Who knew that pouring yourself a little glass of wine could have so many benefits! 

Of course, those who really are wine connoisseurs have known this all along. These are the reasons, in addition to many others why wine has remained, and will remain such a treasure. True wine connoisseurs can judge the quality of the wine by just taking in the scent and just swirling the wine to really get all the flavour notes. Vintage wine really has its own charm, as it has been made with so much more effort than a regular, non-vintage wine. While non-vintage wines do taste good too, vintage wines are more expertly crafted and just the taste can take us back to the year it was made, as the wine is influenced by things such as the weather, the region, and so much more.  

With this kept in mind, it is very clear that for the best of days and the happiest of celebrations, what you need on hand is an expertly made vintage wine. Of course, then, you also need the right wine for the right occasion. White wines usually pair well with seafood and lighter courses, as they are themselves much lighter on the palette. On the other hand, red wines have a more full-bodied flavour and can go excellently with main courses which have a much more heavier flavour profile as compared to white wines. However, no matter which wine it is that you pick, always try to opt for a wine from a reliable maker and one that has been expertly made using the finest grapes, in the finest of climates. 

With wines being so popular, there are understandably a large number of manufacturers and retailers all around. While almost all will make tall claims about their particular wine, not every wine that we make will really tickle our taste buds the way that we want it to.
