What Kind of Wine Drinker Are You?

Updated: Mar 15, 2022

Wine makes for a happy juice for all situations, especially in this pandemic. Wine in the Philippines or anywhere else in the world is like that spoonful of sugar that helps the medicine go down in a most delightful way.

Sure, you can pour whiskey in your morning coffee, but hard drinks are more for nightcaps. If you want something to perk you up without incapacitating your thinking processes, you got to choose wine.

Down a glass or two of your favorite spirit while in your kitchen, virtual office meeting, writing your next blog post, or in front of the TV—wine can be your all-time, go-to drink. You don’t even have to concern yourself with which bottle to pop open, especially if you can identify yourself from among the several types of wine drinkers out there.

In case you’re still unsure of your wine drinker persona, though, this infographic should be worth your time—and a toast.

The 10 Types of Wine Drinker

1. The Wine Newbie

Another term for this bunch is the “Sweet Tooth Drinker.” This wine drinker loves sweet wines, like the Pink Moscato.

In a study of wine types or “vinotypes,” the pairings of white wine with white meat and red wine with red meat are thrown out the window. What scientists are telling us now is to follow our taste buds. So wine newbies are the ones who are likely to go pink and sweet all the way.

2. The Wine Tourist

Having been on a wine tour makes this wine drinker open to exciting food, like caviar, while enjoying the different flavors and textures of wines being sampled.

Dining and drinking with a wine tourist will make you feel like you went where they did, as they give you a taste of the food, wine, and enriching travel experiences they’ve had.
