Whether you prefer a full bodied red or a crisp glass of white, there’s one thing we now know – that your vino of choice says a lot about your personality.
According to new research, there are some big differences between red and white wine drinkers.
A survey of 2,000 Americans aged over 21 found that white wine drinkers are more likely to be extroverted individuals who prefer to stay up late and listen to punk music apparently. They’re also more likely to be curious, sarcastic perfectionists, prefer cats over dogs and are willing to spend less on a bottle.
The study was conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Coravin, and they also looked at the personality traits of red wine drinkers. They tended to be early risers, listen to jazz music and deem themselves adventurous, humble and organised.
The research also showed that those who prefer red see themselves as ‘wine aficionados’ – and the results show that they’re not wrong, as they’re more likely to know how to hold the glass correctly, what tannins are and how long it takes for wine to oxidise.
Greg Lambrecht, Founder and Inventor of Coravin said: ‘Enjoying a glass of whatever wine someone is in the mood for, doesn’t need to be wasteful. There are more amazing wines available now, than ever before. Wine lovers should be able to enjoy the wine they love, in the amount they want, without thinking about when they are going to return to that bottle.’
One thing the two groups agreed on was that their favourite place to enjoy a drink is at home.
As for those who drink both? We’ll just have to assume you’re all of the above.
