What's Your Vinotype?

What type of wine drinker are you?

Tried and true or Something New!

I’m a wine learner. I like to explore different types of wine and how they relate to history , culture, and cuisine. I enjoy trying new wines and finding out what makes them unique. I love talking to wine drinkers to find out what makes them unique.

There are different types of wine drinkers, depending on their personality, taste preferences, and knowledge of wine. According to a study by researchers at Michigan State University, there are four main types of wine drinkers, or “vinotypes”:

  • Sweet: are people who like delicate sweet and fruity wines, such as Moscato, Riesling, or White Zinfandel or reds such as Pinot Noir or Petit Syrah. Sweets often have a sensitive palate and a preference for sweet foods and drinks. Sweet wine drinkers may also enjoy sparkling wines, such as Prosecco or Asti Spumante. Of course dessert wines and fancy desserts will also be a the top of the list for the Sweets.

Any time is Wine & Dessert Time!!

  • Hypersensitive: are people who appreciate the subtle nuances and complexity of wines. Maybe just a bit picky but also adventurous and willing to explore and discover new wines and foods. However, you will return to the tried and trues. You also enjoy more diverse flavors in your food and generally choose more savory flavors. Great choices for the Hypersensitive are Pinot Grigio. Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Merlot.

  • Sensitive: contrary to the title you are really a “Free-Spirit”. You will enjoy the most diverse wines Your wine choices range from delicate to full-bodied – dry whites and full-bodied reds. You also are very adventurous in your food choices from “hot and spicy” to “sweet sweet sweet” and pairing your wines to your choices makes you a perfect choice for a night out at the Wine Bar.

Lets try a Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc or a Bordeaux, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Merlot or Syrah - Oh heck let's try them all!

  • Tolerant: you who love bold and intense wines, and lots of flavor in your foods. The finer things in life intrigue you and you must try them all. You still can’t understand how someone ruins the coffee by adding cream & sugar.

An evening with you will include full bodied Chardonnay, Viognier, Zinfandel

or Big Reds – Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir

Wine is a fascinating and diverse beverage that can enhance any occasion. Whether you’re a casual drinker or a connoisseur, there’s always something new to discover about wine.
