What's Your Wine Drinking Personality?

3Just like the type of movies you watch or the clothes you wear can say a lot about you, so can the way in which you drink your wine. Or so The Republican's Ken Ross believes.

So what do your wine drinking habits say about you?


A sipper generally sits on one glass of wine the entire evening, tasting tiny sips as if it may contain poison. Very rarely will they consume a second glass. A sipper tends to prefer red wine, with glasses costing no more than $10 and will consume the beverage over a meal.

A sipper's clothing is made up of lots of tweed and sensible shoes.


For a slugger, there is no sniffing the wine pheromones and they care very little about where the wine was produced and how much it costs. It's wine, so they are happy.

Look for sluggers at pool parties and tiki bars. You'll know a slugger by the outlandish Hawaiian shirt and thongs.


A labeller doesn't necessarily care what the wine tastes like, but they do care what people think when they drink it. They determine their choices using wine guides, knowing that people who know about wine will respect their choice of drink.

Labellers love to hang out in wine bars and country clubs, drive a Lexus and wear only clothes designed by Versace.


An explorer will pick the most unusual bottle off the shelf, or one that contains an unusual ingredient. The more exotic, the more they will drink.

You can expect to find an explorer enjoying a wine near some cliffs he's just lunged off or on the balcony of the world's tallest building.


A comforter opts for a medium-priced bottle of red and curls up in front of the fire at the same time every night having just consumed the same meal they had the night before.

They love full bodied reds or Champagne and often have a dog or cat curled up on their lap as they sip.
