What Your Wine Choice Says About You
OCT 18, 2014
Champagne: You have a closet full of cashmere sweaters and Manolo Carolynes, your favorite place in the world is Paris and all your Instagram photos (of macarons, pretty stationery and flowers) have a dreamy pink filter. You like to think you're the life of the party, but you're usually in bed by 10.
Sauvignon Blanc: Sauvignon blanc inspires strong hate-it-or-love-it opinions—and so do you. You're an icy blonde with a designer wardrobe and a different date every night. In high school, you were the president of the debate team, cheerleading captain and valedictorian; now, you're running your own company.
Pinot Grigio: Pinot grigio—known for its mildness and ability to pair well with most meals—is the safe choice: You're not the type of girl who's ordering the chef's tasting menu or going skydiving anytime soon. Rather, you're an urban dweller who gets your fill of adventure from reading books like Gone Girl and watching catfights on The Real Housewives.
Chardonnay: The most sophisticated and complex of the whites, chardonnay is the favorite of ladies who lunch. You have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, a kid in the Ivy League and a framed photo of your dear friends George and Laura Bush on the mantel.
Rosé: You're anywhere between the ages of 21 and 65, a regular on the Hampton Jitney and known to overuse the word 'chic.' There's nowhere you'd rather be on a summer day than at a polo match or the beach.
Pinot Noir: Master Sommelier Madeline Triffon calls pinot noir "sex in a glass"—it's romantic and intoxicating, just like you. You win over men and women alike with your smarts, looks and charm.
Merlot: One word describes merlot and the people who drink it: Basic. (See Sideways for further evidence.) You value comfort over style every time—an ideal gift for the merlot drinker is a new pair of Ugg slippers—and are a sucker for frames and pillows with inspirational phrases printed on them.
Cabernet Sauvignon: A world traveler with an appreciation for the finer things in life, you have a strong personality and a talent for being able to engage just about anyone. You got into Oxford, but chose to backpack through Thailand instead. Your friends call you The Most Interesting Woman in the World.
