Here’s What Your Favorite Wine Says About Your Personality


A quick note: We only promote products that we believe in and endorse.

Everyone has their go-to wine. Whether you’re an adventurer at heart or you stick with what you know, we bet you lean toward one type or another. And, your wine preference says a lot about your personality.

If you go for quality (which we know you do, you tasteful vino enthusiast!), you need to check out Winc. The company is changing the way wine is sourced, made and shipped. You start your journey by taking an intuitive wine quiz that asks you simple-to-answer questions like “How do you like your coffee?” and “Do you like citrus?” After you’re done with the quiz, which takes about ten seconds to complete, you’ll receive four wine recommendations and information on each wine. You can choose how many reds or whites you receive out of the four, so if you really can’t stand pale wine, you’re good to go. Oh, and shipping takes just two to three days after completing your purchase. Yep, we’re in love.

Just for being an amazing Swirled subscriber, Winc is offering $25 off your first month’s order of wines and free shipping if you purchase four bottles or more. Plus, the company is hosting a special promotion for its customers who order in December, so act fast if you’re thinking of taking the plunge.

So, what does your wine preference say about you? Let’s take a look.


You’re partial to indulgence, whether that means savoring a bar of incredible craft chocolate or drawing the bougiest bubble bath with all the wonderful fragrances. You like to get deep with those around you, having heart to hearts and introspective realizations.

Pinot Grigio

You like to keep things light and harmonious among your friends and family and can be a little shy. Your style is understated but classic, and you never like to carry too much emotional or mental weight. You have great judgment, which is why you stick to your pinot grigio at brunch while your friends get into trouble with those sugary mimosas.

Cabernet Sauvignon

If anyone in the group makes decisions, it’s you. You go after exactly what you want and know when something is (or isn’t) just right. Criticism doesn’t phase you, just like cabernet sauvignon’s dry bitterness is just another delicious flavor profile to you. You’re not exactly subtle, but your friends love that you say precisely what you mean and say it confidently.


You may have been told once or twice that you have dry humor, but when people connect with you, you open right up. You’re sophisticated as hell and like to live by the “work-hard-play-hard” mantra. You also may be the most fashionable of those in your circle, because your taste is impeccable.

Pinot Noir

You don’t feel at ease unless your life is in total balance, and you’re great at maintaining that balance in every part of your life. You’re just sweet and reserved enough (like pinot noir) to be a favorite at parties, and you have a large but loving friend group.

Sauvignon Blanc

You like complexity without loudness — think that great new crime novel that can both put you to sleep and get your mental wheels turning. You can also be a bit of a perfectionist, which means you feel at ease when you’re in control. You’re a total #Girlboss, and you wear the label well.


You don’t live in a world where things are black and white (or rather, red and white). You want everyone around you to know that you don’t mind breaking from tradition to try something new, and you often find that going outside the norm is where you feel most comfortable. You’re also super trendy, so raise a glass to your on-point self.


You are the sweetheart of the group and you’re great at mentoring those younger than you. You like to host dinner parties and even send your friends instructions to not bring anything, so that they know the night is all about you spoiling them. You live by the phrase “Kill them with kindness.” You sometimes feel slightly taken advantage of, but you genuinely love giving to those close to you.


No matter how old you get, you’ll always be young at heart. You’re the type of person who has no issue with sitting at the kids table during holiday dinners and encouraging youngsters to eat dessert first. You have a fun energy that everyone wishes they could hold onto after their younger years, and you have the best college stories.


You’re more of an introvert, and you like it that way. If you could plan a perfect day, it would entail a nice walk along the river, making a special lunch and drinking a glass of your favorite port. You’re an old soul. You have the best advice and always know the appropriate response to the messiest of situations.


You’re one of those people who embody “Yolo” and “You only have one life, so live it to the fullest.” You’re not interested in anything quiet or subtle. If you’re in the car, you’re blasting music, and if you’re at a restaurant, you ask the waiter for the most unique, flavorful dish on the menu. You’re a world explorer at heart and want to immerse yourself in new environments and new people.


If you’ve been called “basic” before, you aren’t phased, because you accept that you like the simple things. You still have your favorite pair of comfy boots and you value comfort over style most of the time. Your broad taste appeals to a range of personalities, making you a laid-back and easy conversationalist.
