What Type of Wine Are You??

The following information is not a secret at all: AI LAIK MY WINE!!!!
Whether it comes with some food or just simply on it's own, wine is the perfect ending to a perfect day, or to a shitty day for that matter. It gives me the kind of satisfaction and relief that a good session of yoga or pilates can give you. No I am not an alcoholic - cos I still do the yoga and pilates once in a while as a change to the wine - but I am just one of those foodies that loves wine too!
Not healthy? Eh... in moderation everything is healthy.
Good Old Falanghina!
So while having my perfect glass of wine - a good old Falanghina - on a rooftop somewhere in Milan, chillaxing it big time with my dear friend Katia, the conversation came up on whether wine and personality are combined or not. It is commonly known that the ladies out there prefer white for instance; they prefer Rieslings, or Muhler Turgau's that are light and fruity. Men on the other hand tend to prefer bold red wines like the Cabernet Sauvignon.
After that conversation, while checking out Pamela's blog 'My Man's Belly' I came across this funny test where you can actually find out what type of wine you are according to who you are! Talking about coincidence!!!

What is Your “Wine Personality”?

Are you…
  • Sweet? – Riesling
  • Energetic? – Sauvignon Blanc
  • Sporty? – Pinot Grigio
  • Sunny and Mellow? – Chardonnay
  • A person of high standards? – Pinot Noir
  • Earthy? – Merlot
  • Adventurous? – Cabernet
Mirassou® Winery unscientific “wine personality” quiz is even more fun: Answer these questions to determine what your “wine personality” is, so you can choose the perfect wine for you and your guests!
1. Are you a real sweetheart or big softy?
2. Do you prefer sweet tastes over salty ones?
3. Do you run circles around your friends because you’re so energetic?
4. Are you constantly “on the go”?
5. Do you spend most of your free time on the golf course?
6. Do you tend to participate in sports rather than watching as a by-stander?
7. Is your disposition a happy one?
8. Do you “go with the flow”? Have you been described by some as being flexible or “mellow”?
9. Are you a perfectionist, never letting go of a project until it’s completely perfect?
10. Are you a “Type A” with extremely high standards for yourself and others?
11. Are you a nature buff, one who’d rather be out hiking or fishing or out enjoying the natural world?
12. Are you concerned for the environment?
13. Are you a powerhouse in the workplace who is ready to meet any challenge and sometimes referred to as “adventurous”?
14. Do you like to take risks, preferring to try things outside your comfort zone?
If you answered yes to questions 1 or 2, you are a Riesling If you answered yes to questions 3 or 4, you are a Sauvignon Blanc If you answered yes to questions 5 or 6, you are a Pinot Grigio If you answered yes to questions 7 or 8, you are a Chardonnay If you answered yes to questions 9 or 10, you are a Pinot Noir If you answered yes to questions 11 or 12, you are a Merlot If you answered yes to questions 13 or 14, you are a Cabernet.
If you answered yes to multiple questions, you like a wide range of varietals!
