So, what are you drinking tonight? Are you a Chardonnay kind of girl? Or perhaps Pinot Grigio is your poison? Samantha Anderson, Managing Director at Vinopolis, explains what your choice of drink says about your personality – take note (and don't look a rosé drinker in the eye, whatever you do…).
The kind of wine that's fun to slur: 'Pour us another Chardonaayy darling!' Chardonnay lovers are usually hard workers, who like to party in equal measure. Chardonnay's such an accessible wine, these drinkers are often great socialisers, who like surrounding themselves with fun and like-minded friends.
Think of Sauvignon Blanc as Chardonnay 2.0. Where once these wine lovers were simply hard workers, now they're workaholic robots and Sauvignon Blanc is their oil. They're people of extremes; either fighting to beat a deadline or found running into the sea naked!
Pinot Noir is such a full-bodied and powerful wine that it's drinkers could just be over compensating. Not a wine to be ordered lightly, those who claim to love Pinot Noir are either super sure of themselves, or just faking it.
Pinot Grigio drinkers act as though they're part of a club, but could this be down to insecurities They abbreviate everything when sipping on a Pinot Grig', always confident you'll totes understand what they mean. Pinot G is a love it or hate it wine, just like the drinker attached to its glass.
Cabernet Sauvignon drinkers are smooth and intelligent (and possibly ever so slightly pretentious). The kind of individuals who effortlessly ooze finesse and worldliness. You may see them sipping away over a good book, ordering a bottle in a gallery or sophisticatedly enjoying their poison over a feminist revision of King Lear at the Donmar. Oh you fancy, huh?
Champagne drinkers mean business. The business of partying! Naturally, champagne is more expensive than Prosecco, so champagne drinkers tend to be from the slightly upper classes – yah? Or maybe they're just want to make you think that… Don't begrudge the champagne drinker though, they're often generous and a bundle of fun.
Prosecco drinkers know they are living the middle class dream. They love a dinner parties, watching Ascot and will avidly tweet all of this at you! They tend to be the social butterflies, flippantly fluttering from party to party, bearing bottles of fizz as though it's a peace offering.
Riesling drinkers are, like the wine, as sweet as can be. The type to keep one step ahead of the trend, but happy to let you in on the secret – and always ready with an 'after-dinner' bottle. Any excuse to keep the party going!
Lastly, the Rosé drinkers – they really are a special type of person. Don't trust them, they're probably wizards…
