What Does Your Wine Choice Say About You?

What Does Your Wine Choice Say About You?

Are you a deep, moody red or a light and bubbly sparkling white?

By Elizabeth Best | 11th February 2016

When ordering wine, there’s a lot to consider: the price, the varietal, whether or not there’s a pretty picture on the label… but have you ever stopped to think what your choice REALLY says about you?

Think about it: when you want to make a good impression on someone, you spend ages picking out the perfect statement outfit, paired with the ideal atmosphere and topped off with the right culinary masterpiece sure to impress. Your wine choice says just as much about your personality as the rest of the whole shebang, so it pays to pick well. What do your taste buds say about you?

Cabernet Sauvignon

This polished babe is the royalty of wines; if this is your tipple then you’re probably the queen bee of your group. You’re known for liking the finer things in life, and are strong, supportive and direct. You know what you want and you’re not afraid to ask for it. Quality is key and if it doesn’t pass muster, then it’s out the door.


You’re such a cool customer! You’re known for being as easy to get along with as Merlot is easy to drink. You’re super talkative and are a fountain of fascinating dinner-table discussion. People love to listen to you, and in turn you love provoking interesting conversation. You’re at ease in any situation and you adapt easily to change.

Sauvignon Blanc

You kick butt and take names, girl! You are a textbook alpha female and you like to be in control at all times. You’re a fashionista who is extremely sophisticated and your social calendar is always chock-a-block. You’re never too tired to put on a pair of heels and strut your stuff.

Champagne/Sparkling Wines

Bubbly wine means bubbly personality (big surprise, right?) This little drop is usually associated with big events, and so are you. You love a party, and would go to the opening of an envelope if it meant getting dressed up. Sometimes you can seem a little larger than life, but you wouldn’t have it any other way. Life is meant to be celebrated!


Like the wine, you can get a bit of a bad wrap. But once people get to know you, they’re hooked. You’re bold, brassy and unapologetic, and don’t care for trends. If you want it, you’ll get it, whether it’s fashionable or not. Sometimes this means you get a little stuck in a comfort zone, but hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!


You’re a little indecisive but it’s part of your charm. You don’t like missing out on things, and if there are two parties in one night you’re gonna try your darndest to make it to both. You buy your clothes in multiple colours of the same style but you STILL have a hard time picking a favourite. No one will notice if you wear them all in one week, right?

Pinot Noir

If a cheeky Pinot is your drink of choice, you’re either super confident or super good at faking it ’til you make it. You need to project an air of having everything under control at all times, even if everything is falling apart on the inside. You like to get your way more often than not, which can sometimes make it hard to get through your thick skin but once people crack you, you’re deep and thoughtful. Or you just love the show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.


You, my lady, are the life of the party. You’re a buzzy social bee who is likely to be the first one up dancing on tables. You don’t care what ANYONE thinks and your inhibitions are few and far between. Subtlety does not work for you. You like bright colours, loud music and super fast cars. Shiraz is on trend, and you know it; it’s half the reason you’re drinking it!


Well, aren’t you just the sweetest thing! You’re so genuine and loving but sometimes people take advantage of that. You’re known among your mates as a great listener and will always be there for moral support if someone needs it. You can sometimes be a bit reserved, so don’t forget to speak up for yourself sometimes!
