Have you ever thought your wine preferences may serve a door to your personal traits – just like music tastes, favorite hues, or star signs?
Well, a recent study carried out in the USA featuring two thousands Americans older than 21, and their red and white wine experience, resulted in a few curious discoveries. Those who prefer red wine and those who prefer white turned out to have very different individual patterns.
The respondents selected for the survey – who reached the age of legal alcohol consumption – all indicated having at least four glasses of wine every week. The vast majority – 75% of respondents – said they would follow the greater part’s preference, although they might want a different option; 72% liked it more to drink at home; only about a half of surveyed – 49% – would rather have some “wine out” during occasions and gatherings; more than a half – 62% – shared that they didn’t have wine after work/with dinner since they had no wish to uncork a new wine bottle.
Red wine drinkers’ common features
As for the wine color preferences, the received conclusions are rather inexplicit. For instance, those who choose to drink red wine would probably:
- call themselves wine enthusiasts
- wake up early in the morning
- be more introvertive
- love dogs
- listen to jazz
- describe themselves as more risky, humble and self-disciplined
- spend more on wine
White wine drinkers’ common features
The respondents with white wine preference tend to:
- more rarely call themselves wine enthusiasts
- stay up until late at night
- be more extraversive
- love cats
- listen to punk
- describe themselves as more inquisitive, derisive and exacting
- spend less on wine
Some thinking material
While many people think an average of more than $35 is a standard price for a bottle of wine, this is not necessarily true. More than that, alcohol marketing is often based on placebo effect that makes you sure the more costly a wine bottle is, the better its contents is.
