What Kind of Wine Drinker Are You Really?

Do you really know what kind of wine drinker you are? We’re not talking about red or white, sweet or dry. We’re talking about what really matters when it comes to wine. That’s right, there is something more important when it comes to your preference of wine- your wine-o type! 

Why is this important? Your wine-o type helps you to identify which kind of vibe you go for when you’re drinking wine. It’s often an overlooked part when people are looking for where to get wine near them. No matter what types of wine you drink, the ambiance and energy is what really makes the wine experience. Each wine-o type craves a special environment when enjoying their wine. Some people identify as one type of wine-o while others may relate to multiple types, but knowing which type or types you are will help enhance all your wine experiences.

The “Dinner and a Show” Wine-o

When it comes to enjoying a glass or bottle (we don’t judge), you want to be entertained. Your wine experience is only as good as the entertainment you watch while you sip. The wine provides your smell and taste with a joyous time but now you need your other senses to get in on the fun.

The “Back to the Room” Wine-o

Wine doesn’t have to be a social event. Sometimes the ideal experience is with just you and your wine. Everyone needs their me-time! This kind of wine-o type enjoys more exclusive moments whether it be with themselves or a few close friends and family.

The “I Don’t Drink Wine” Wine-o

We all have that one drink that we like to sip on to enhance whatever experience we’re having. For some, that’s not wine. This type of wine-o likes to have a casual drink and walk around, work, lay on the beach, or literally anything! And by a drink, we mean a cup of coffee or tea!

The “Social Butterfly” Wine-o

It’s always fun to try new wines and get the story on where they came from. Even just learning more about the wines you already like is fun too. But why stop at wine! Meeting new people and getting to know more about your friends makes a wine night even more enjoyable for you.

The “Chill Vibes” Wine-o

It’s all about relaxing and unwinding after a full day. Enjoying wine can only happen when you’re in an environment where your muscles aren’t tense and your brain doesn’t have to be working hard. If you feel like talking? Fine, but you don’t have to! Feel like watching the sunset? Sure, but it’s up to you!
