Yes, we’ve got a quiz to solve this dilemma for you! Based on your love (or not) for rains, we’ve got a wine suggestion for you. Our scientists at Big Banyan have observed the inner workings of the human mind and the barometrical pressures of atmosphere, and come up with this quiz. Oh, who are we kidding?! There’s absolutely no scientific basis for this quiz. It’s totally made up, and very random. Enjoy the moment of madness.

That was easy, right? Now let’s check your scores.
You’re a regular ray of sunshine (even in the rain). You welcome the pleasant showers. And for you we think the Big Banyan Chenin Blanc is the perfect companion. It is zesty, easy-going and pairs well with any mood – just like you.
Don’t be so glum. Stop awhile, smell the scent of fresh earth and enjoy the moment. We suggest you have a generous glug of Big Banyan Rosa Rossa. The light freshness of the wine and the fragrant aromas will cheer you up instantly.
The rains bring out a certain lazy, cozy side to you. You’d rather be alone doing your favourite thing. Try Big Banyan Merlot. It has a plummy, smooth finish and is perfect for me-time.
You are possessed by a certain sense of romance when it starts raining. And that’s why we recommend the Big Banyan Shiraz for you. The bold flavours will complement your mood perfectly.
It’s just a simple downpour. Get a grip. Try the spunky Big Banyan Chardonnay. It’s a classic, elegant wine that will sober your spirit, and make you feel better.
