What if we told you that your go-to tipple might say more about you than you realise? According to a poll by Coravin, red wine drinkers tend to be early birds, while white wine lovers are generally night owls - red wine drinkers generally own dogs, while white wine-lovers are more likely to have a cat.

They said red wine drinkers were more likely to identify as "introverts, adventurous, humble, and organized" and white wine lovers identified as "extroverts, curious, sarcastic, and perfectionists."

So, we thought…why don’t we help you find your perfect wine this winter?

The Connoisseur

This type of wine complements a fancier taste and is reserved for those with high standards - these can make you a bit delicate for others to manage. But, this quality is still necessary for helping other people explore finer tastes, and your adherence to quality is something that will always be admirable for those who are yet to discover more of the world.

Your perfect wine: Missionvale Chardonnay

Because, you also know that a wooded white is the perfect partner for a fragrant, warming curry or creamy prawn stroganoff - and that red wine doesn’t have the monopoly on your winter drinking decisions.

The Passionate Romantic

You are invested in your ideals and devoted to your passions. Elegant, classy - a hard worker, who is successful at everything you do - you make smart decisions and are respected by those around you.

Your perfect wine: Galpin Peak Pinot Noir

Galpin Peak Pinot Noir

Known as “the heartbreak grape”, as it is one of the most difficult grapes to cultivate, it is no wonder that Pinot Noir is your perfect match. And, it’s an easy win for winter warmers - think slow-braised pork belly, with Emmental and potato gratin and heirloom carrots.

The Multi-Faceted Traditionalist

You’re layered and intense, there’s a touch of mystery about you - often preferring to relax with a book than go out. You believe in keeping tradition alive, while still allowing some room for innovation.

Your perfect wine: Hannibal


A great partner to Indian and other spicy dishes, it’s your new best friend this winter - a versatile blend of Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir; Shiraz; Mourvedre and Barbera - that is just as easily enjoyed in your leather armchair with a good book, than it is around a table with good friends.
