The Best Places to Drink Wine

Where are the best places to drink wine?

Let’s be real. Any place is a good place to drink wine (as long as you’re following the rules.) 

On a boat? Sure! On a picnic blanket? You got it! Camping under the stars? Sign us up!

We asked our Bright Cellars’ community where they most like to drink wine, and here are the results.


  • 40.7% responded at the kitchen table with a home-cooked meal
  • 27.2% said they prefer to drink wine at happy hour with friends 
  • 23.9% choose to drink wine on the couch with Netflix blaring 
  • 5.3% said they like to drink wine at the park with the sun shining
  • 2.9% prefer to drink wine in the bathtub surrounded by bubbles

We also asked our Bright Cellars Instagram community and got some more ideas for awesome places to drink wine:

  • My friends house outside 
  • All of the above would be nice!
  • While cooking
  • Love me a good bath and some good wine ????????

The “Home Chef”

If you’re part of the group who enjoys drinking wine while enjoying a home-cooked meal (or during the actual cooking part), there are countless recipes and food/wine pairings out there for you to explore. Check out Wine Pairings for Our Favorite 30-minute Meals.

The “Happy Hour Enthusiast”

If you’re someone who enjoys drinking wine at happy hour with your friends, host a virtual happy hour! Email our Wine Concierge team at and see if we can help put together a Bright Cellars inspired tasting. 

The “Are You Still Watching?” Sipper

If you’re someone who enjoys drinking wine to the soundtrack of the Netflix music (DUN DUN DUN!), boy, are you in store for a treat. We recently paired our favorite binge worthy shows with wine. Loyal fan of the streaming series The Crown? We recommend a chilled glass of Riesling. Did you know it was a favorite of the Queen? Don’t even get us started on Bridgerton

The “Picnic In the Park” Day Drinker

If your favorite thing to pair with wine is sunshine, get outside! Grab your picnic blanket, put together an eye-catching charcuterie board, and find a good place to hunker down and soak up the sun. We’ll even teach you how to put together a show-stopping charcuterie board in three easy steps.

The “Bottles & Bubbles” Drinker

If you’re someone who enjoys wine in the bathtub, you do you. Did you know the antioxidants in wine actually make it a pretty good moisturizer? That means a little slosh in the tub every now and then won’t hurt you. In fact, it can actually help you. Read more about it here.


Remember – every day is a good day for wine, and every place is a good place to drink it. Cheers! Missed out on this survey and want to get in on the next? Subscribe to our daily newsletter, Glass Half Full.
